Google has created a very helpful toolkit for teachers, parents, and other professionals working with youth.
The Be Internet Awesome curriculum gives educators the tools and methods they need to teach digital safety fundamentals. The materials developed by Google in partnership with iKeepSafe enable educators to bring the most critical teachings—and the excitement of Interland—into the classroom.
Included in the curriculum are lesson plans for the five topics, with activities and worksheets that were designed to complement Interland.
We, at the VFC, played INTERLAND and thought it was awesome! In the first level “Reality River” you get to be a cool little character trying to find your way to the other side of the river by answering internet safety questions. Some questions are “on the clock” and give you a limited time to answer, making the game very exciting! In the next levels there are even games to help students consider what to share and what not to share on the internet. Check it out!
We think you will find a use for INTERLAND in your classrooms
