"Be Internet Awesome" (July 2018)

‘Be Internet Awesome’

This site aims to: ‘To make the most of the Internet, kids need to be prepared to make smart decisions. Be Internet Awesome teaches kids the fundamentals of digital citizenship and safety so they can explore the online world with confidence.’

 

Please follow the link below to access the Interland online game. The fundamentals of the games are:

 

BE INTERNET SMART

 

Share with Care

Good (and bad) news travels fast online, and without some forethought, kids can find themselves in tricky situations that have lasting consequences. The solve? Learning how to share with those they know and those they don’t.

 

Communicate Responsibly

  • Encourage thoughtful sharing by treating online communication like face-to-face communication; if it isn’t right to say, it isn’t right to post.
  • Create guidelines about what kind of communication is (and isn’t) appropriate.
  • Keep personal details about family and friends private.

 

BE INTERNET ALERT

 

Don't Fall for Fake

It’s important to help kids become aware that people and situations online aren’t always as they seem. Discerning between what’s real and what’s fake is a very real lesson in online safety.

 

BE INTERNET STRONG

 

Secure Your Secrets

Personal privacy and security are just as important online as they are offline. Safeguarding valuable information helps kids avoid damaging their devices, reputations, and relationships

 

 

BE INTERNET KIND

 

It’s Cool to Be Kind

The Internet is a powerful amplifier that can be used to spread positivity or negativity. Kids can take the high road by applying the concept of “treat others as you would like to be treated” to their actions online, creating positive impact for others and disempowering bullying behaviour.

 

BE INTERNET BRAVE

 

When in Doubt, Talk It Out

One lesson that applies to any and all encounters of the digital kind: When kids come across something questionable, they should feel comfortable talking to a trusted adult. Adults can support this behaviour by fostering open communication at home and in the classroom.
