Google has yet again created a way to be “Internet awesome” with their new campaign to teach students digital citizenship.

Skils and topics of focus include responsible communication, scams and phishing, password creation (for multiple sites), online kindness, and alerting adults to questionable online encounters.

For educators, there is also a resource tab offering a complete teacher’s guide to this program. It includes lesson activities and ISTE standards that correlate with each topic.
Even if you don’t choose to play the game, the lessons in the guide provide some great talking points and activities to promote digital citizenship amongst students.
