"At Google, we support the education of families on how to stay safe online. That's why we've teamed up with online safety organization iKeepSafe to develop curriculum that educators can use in the classroom to teach what it means to be a responsible online citizen.
The curriculum is designed to be interactive, discussion filled and allow students to learn through hands-on and scenario activities. On this site you'll find a resource booklet for both educators and students that can be downloaded in PDF form, presentations to accompany the lesson and animated videos to help frame the conversation.
Europe needs to complete its ambitious digital single market initiative if it wants to help citizens and local technology businesses thrive, according to David Drummond, Google’s senior vice president of corporate development and chief legal officer.
Anthony Beal's insight:
The digital single market, seven pillars include digital literacy skills
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.
