    Hello everyone,
    I promised Leana I would post this website and just remembered I hadn't done so.  Google has created this website that you can find here: https://beinternetawesome.withgoogle.com/

    It's a really fun website and a great curriculum for teaching internet safety, passwords, preventing cyberbullying and being more careful with the information shared on social media.  There are games for younger children, but there are also full lesson plans that include group activities and role playing for teenagers and adults.  There is also a training center for educators and beautiful posters for schools to use.  They have even included letter templates to send out to parents when promoting the workshop.

    I used it a couple of times with parents and their students as well as helping senior citizens understand social media sharing.  I also went through some of the trainings in the training center.  And found the information very helpful to include in the lessons with the parents.
