In a bid to promote a healthier and safer environment for children on the internet, Google has kick-started new initiatives for parents to educate their children how to be safe online.

Google has joined hands with the National PTA and DonorsChoose.org to create a workshop kit called 'Be Internet Awesome' for parents to teach one another on initiating discussions on digital safety and citizenship.

 

The kit includes a Pixelbook and presentations for co-learning at home about online reputation, social sharing, phishing scams, privacy, cyberbullying, inappropriate content, and such topics to promote a safer internet experience.

Google will also be awarding grants worth USD 1,000 to local PTAs in every state in the US to help facilitate the workshops.
