Google have recently launched a Digital Citizenship/Internet Safety curriculum. The Be Internet Awesome site features a game called Interland. The game is set in a virtual world that students navigate by correctly answering questions about Internet safety.
Be Internet Awesome is based on five key concepts for kids:
Create professional looking videos. Just add photos, videos, text, music. All the editing is done for you, so you can focus on your story. Add maps, custom transitions. Set movie pace, individual durations. Add voice-over, set volumes. Trim videos, reverse or slo-mo.
GoNoodle gets kids moving to be their strongest, bravest, silliest, smartest, bestest selves. Over 10 million kids each month are dancing, stretching, running, jumping, deep breathing, and wiggling with GoNoodle at GoNoodle.com
