Google's latest offering helps teach children to be safe, confident explorers of the online world. I used it with a class of Y5 children today and the consensus was overwhelmingly positive. The children play in four areas, tackling hackers, phishers, oversharers and bullies.
Interland is split into the following four worlds:
This game teaches children to be respectful and kind online and to report cyber-bullies.
Here the focus is on sharing information online only with people you trust.
Tower of Treasure
Tower of Treasure is all about making strong passwords...
The fourth game teaches children to steer clear of phishers and other fake stuff online.
There's also teacher resources available and a YouTube collaboration in the form of the so-called #BeInternetAwesome challenge - have a look at the videos below to find out more.
