If you have a child (or adult) on the Internet you want them to be safe online and learn how to share content and with whom, how to detect what is real and fake, how to treat others on the Internet and more. Well, Google is making this easy and free with "Be Internet Awesome" at https://beinternetawesome.withgoogle.com/en_us.
At the above site you can find Interland. Interland is an interactive world with numerous islands focussing on the various topics mentioned above. The player plays through activities teaching lessons and at the end there is a quiz. Pass the quiz and get a certificate of completion for that island.
I have played through several of the islands and have to say it is fantastic. What is even better is it is totally free and no need to register, give an email address, etc.
There. is a curriculum and other content for schools and parents, but if you do anything at all go through the islands with your child.
This site is fantastic and a must learning resource for any child on the Internet.
