A partnership to help students become responsible digital citizens

Be Internet Awesome + Pear Deck

Knowing the basics of good digital citizenship is essential for today’s students — and far too important to be stuck behind a paywall. That’s why we've teamed up with Google on Be Internet Awesome, a free, dig cit curriculum with everything teachers need to help kids learn to be safe explorers of the online world. Each presentation provides teachers with a simple way to introduce a concept related to digital literacy and guide students through related activities.
