Due to widespread usage of internet, people tend to start using internet at a very young age. While internet is essential to remain connected with everything that’s happening in the world, children can have unpleasant experience over the medium. As a result, Google has decided to ensure that kids have pleasant experiences by introducing a new program called Be Internet Awesome.
The newly launched program is aimed at educating children on how to become smart decisions online. In order to do that, the program contains different scenarios along with materials that can be used by anyone for teaching purposes.
According an official post, while the newly launched program is aimed at teaching kids on how to protect their information on internet, it will also teach children how to be kind to one another as bullying has long been a problem on internet.
In order to make the program engaging, the company has included interactive materials which includes minigames that feature multiple choice questions that promotes positive interactions over internet. It’s certainly commendable that an internet giant like Google is taking initiatives to make the internet a safer place for the children. However, in order to get the most out of the program, both teachers and parents should engage and take full advantage of the program.
