Educational Technology Guy: Google Launches ThinkB4U Digital Literacy Portal

Educational Technology Guy: Google Launches ThinkB4U Digital Literacy Portal | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Yesterday was Safer Internet Day 2012. As part of this, Google posted some great internet safety resources on their Public Policy Blog. There was a new service listed: ThinkB4U. Google is describing it as a "digital literacy portal" that combines interactive videos with expert advice on online safety.

The site opens with a video about the Parkers, a family living in the digital age. Then there are separate videos about different topics. The site has separate menus for students, educators, and parents and addresses online safety in different ways for each audience.

Topics range from digital distraction, online shopping, online scams, research and information literacy, cyber-bullying, digital footprints, texting, sharing online, and effective digital communication. These topics are addressed in each menu, but approached differently for each audience.

I highly recommend ThinkB4U to all teachers to share with their classes, students, colleagues, friends, and parents of students.
