Be Internet Awesome Installer

Introduction

Pear Deck and Google's  Be Internet Awesome is a free digital citizenship curriculum, made of interactive Slides presentations that teach your students to safely, confidently explore the online world. The curriculum is a powerful tool you can use to help your students become responsible digital citizens.

Knowing the basics of good digital citizenship is essential for today’s students. That’s why we've teamed up with Google on Be Internet Awesome,  a free, dig cit curriculum with everything teachers need to help kids learn to be safe, more confident explorers of the online world. Pear Deck educators worked with Google to create custom, interactive presentations to accompany the Be Internet Awesome lessons. Designed for use in the classroom, each presentation provides teachers with a simple way to introduce a concept related to digital literacy and guide students through related activities.

To get the entire curriculum all at once, including all 19 Pear Deck-powered Slides files, the lesson guide, and badges, use the Be Internet Awesome Installer!
