Google Releases Free Course to Help Educators Teach Digital Literacy & Citizenship

Sep 6, 2017

STAYING SAFE IN THE WILD WILD WEB: Google has released a free online training course around digital literacy and citizenship to help teachers instill safe habits in students. The six units cover best practices around internet and mobile security, along with tips for spotting scams and managing one’s online reputation. The resources come in the footsteps of the company’s “Be Internet Awesome” campaign launched earlier this year.

Back in July, one Kentucky teacher shared with EdSurge her experience with implementing Google’s digital citizenship resources in her classroom. It’s important, he writes, that teachers live what they preach. “Are we modeling kindness in how we interact with our classmates and colleagues?”

Educators looking for more comprehensive and in-depth materials on the topic should check out Common Sense Education’s resources on digital citizenship.
