A New Game From Google…

Summer is upon us! Schools are out and temperatures are rising so kids will be spending time in the cool air inside playing online games. While limiting “screen time” is a great idea, another alternative is leading your children to games where they can learn and game at the same time. A new one is available for FREE from Google and other partners, and it is aimed at teaching kids to be safe, smart, & kind users of the internet. After a little time playing it, I was impressed with the graphics, music, and gaming difficulty. As players move through the 5 areas of “Interland” they learn about things like safe sharing on social media and how to create strong passwords.

For educators there is also a FREE curriculum to download and other resources like origami directions for the “internauts” who appear during gameplay.

Here is a link to a Google blog that tells more about the program… https://blog.google/topics/families/be-internet-awesome-helping-kids-make-smart-decisions-online/
