Amazing Educational Resources is a nonprofit program that was initially created to facilitate free sharing of resources among teachers. The platform has since grown to an all-inclusive hub for educational materials. Amazing Educational Resources facilitates access to and sharing of free high -quality resources among teachers, parents and students.

Motivated by the passion to develop an accessible educational resources sharing hub, Nick Hoover, a professional with 14 years teaching experience, founded Amazing Educational Resources Facebook page. The platform has since grown from a Facebook page to a public website harboring over 1,000 resources and an online calendar of events with webinars, lessons, and classes.

Amazing Educational Resources believes there is power in sharing and value in the opinion of teachers and parents. We offer access to quality educational materials, facilitate live discussions about resources in the Facebook group, and hope to make the process of finding high quality resources a little bit easier.

We are focused on simplifying the process of accessing high quality resources for both teachers, parents, and students. We are geared towards providing a reliable platform for teachers and parents to coordinate their efforts in providing quality information and materials to guarantee the best education. A platform that is accessible and affordable to students of all backgrounds.

Be Internet Awesome: Full Curriculum

Welcome to the Be Internet Awesome curriculum, a collaboration between Google, The Net Safety Collaborative, and the Internet Keep Safe Coalition. This resource is part of the Be Internet Awesome program designed to help teach kids the skills they need to be safe and smart online. This year, we’ve added 10 new activities to the curriculum. We partnered with the Committee for Children nonprofit organization to create new social-emotional learning activities to help guide children on their digital journeys. Additionally, we’ve added new lessons on search literacy and updated our safety and security activities to meet the needs of today’s digital world. You’ll also find activities categorized for specific grade levels to accommodate the wide spectrum of child development.

Notably, the Be Internet Awesome program has undergone a thorough evaluation by the University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center. As a result of the study, this is the first internet safety program proven to positively impact student learning on topics of online safety and digital citizenship. The Be Internet Awesome curriculum is self-contained. All the activities are designed to be used with no prior professional development, minimal class prep and no special equipment or resources needed to teach them. Additionally, the lessons are reinforced through gameplay with Interland , an adventure-packed online game that makes learning about digital safety and citizenship interactive and fun—just like the Internet itself.

Five fundamental topics of digital citizenship and safety form the Internet Code of Awesome:
•?Share with Care: Digital Footprint and Responsible Communication
•?Don’t Fall for Fake: Phishing, Scams, and Credible Sources
•?Secure Your Secrets: Online Security and Passwords
•?It’s Cool to Be Kind: Combating Negative Online Behavior
•?When in Doubt, Talk It Out: Questionable Content and Scenarios

This curriculum was created for grades 2?6, however educators with both older and younger students have found value in the lessons, particularly with key vocabulary, class discussions (they age up or down), and gameplay. We encourage you to experiment to find what works best for your learners, whether that means completing the curriculum start to finish or going deep on one or two lessons most needed by your students. To complement the curriculum, you’ll find additional educator and family resources—such as ready-to-teach Pear Deck slides, printable activities, and a family guide and tips for the home.

The International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) completed an independent audit of Be Internet Awesome, recognizing the program as a resource that prepares young learners to meet the 2021 ISTE Standards for Students. ISTE has awarded Be Internet Awesome with the Seal of Alignment for Readiness.

Este es el plan de estudio de Sé genial en Internet, creado por Google en colaboración con la Coalición para una Internet segura (iKeepSafe.org). Este recurso forma parte de “Sé genial en Internet”, un programa multifacético diseñado para enseñarles a los niños las habilidades que necesitan para preservar su seguridad y actuar con inteligencia en línea. El plan de estudio de Sé genial en Internet les brinda a los educadores las herramientas y los métodos necesarios para enseñar en el aula los conceptos básicos de ciudadanía y seguridad digital. Las planificaciones de lecciones brindan los conocimientos esenciales a los educadores que preparan a sus estudiantes para que se conviertan en ciudadanos exitosos y protegidos en nuestro mundo interconectado. Para reforzar estas lecciones, se emplean técnicas de ludificación mediante Interland (g.co/SegenialenInternet), un juego de aventuras en línea para aprender sobre ciudadanía y seguridad digital, tan interactivo y divertido como navegar en Internet. El Código para ser genial en Internet consta de cinco temas fundamentales sobre ciudadanía y seguridad digital: • Comparte con cuidado (Sé inteligente en Internet) • No caigas en trampas (Mantente alerta en Internet) • Protege tus secretos (Mantente seguro en Internet) • Ser amable es genial (Sé amable en Internet) • Si tienes dudas, pregunta (Sé valiente en Internet) Las lecciones están pensadas idealmente para estudiantes de tercer y sexto grado, pero el plan de estudios les ha resultado útil a educadores con estudiantes más pequeños o grandes, en especial el contenido relacionado con el vocabulario clave, los análisis en el aula (acorde a las edades) y el modo de juego. Te alentamos a experimentar con el contenido a fin de determinar las prácticas más eficaces para tus alumnos, ya sea completar el plan de estudios de principio a fin o profundizar en las lecciones específicas que consideres más importantes para tu entorno de aprendizaje. Tras completar una auditoría independiente de Sé genial en Internet, la ISTE (International Society of Technology in Education, Sociedad Internacional para la Tecnología en la Educación) reconoció el programa como un recurso que prepara a los alumnos para cumplir con los estándares ISTE 2016 para estudiantes. La ISTE otorgó a Sé genial en Internet la distinción “Seal of Alignment for Readiness”. El plan de estudios de Sé genial en Internet y el juego Interland son dos de los numerosos recursos que pueden aprovechar tanto familias como educadores para fomentar un uso más sensato de Internet.

Be Internet Awesome: Media Literacy Lessons
Unrestricted Use

Understanding media literacy is more important than ever before. There probably isn’t a teacher on the planet who isn’t feeling that at least a little bit, now—because the ways our children are consuming, making and sharing media have changed so much since we were in their shoes. So where do we start? With the lessons in this little handbook. They offer the foundational tools and concepts of literacy for today’s media environment. You’ll find six activities designed specifically for elementary school students. They’ll learn about…
•?Perspective and how we’re all media makers now, each maker with their own views and ways of interpreting what they see in media
•?Framing—how media makers make choices about what to leave in and leave out of what they create or share
•?Credibility: what it means and how to look for it to spot misinformation
•?Deception and manipulation in media so they can spot disinformation online
•?Sourcing and representation—why we need to make it a practice to ask, “Who made this and why?”

Your students will also learn what media makers have always needed to think about: the impact of their messages. So welcome to a little handbook that offers something really big: learning how to navigate our media environment with confidence and competency.

This collection of resources offers ways to learn online safety basics for a bunch of learning styles. For each unit of the Be Internet Awesome Family Guide—Smart, Alert, Strong, Kind and Brave—you’ll find something for everyone in your family:
•?Tips for safe Internet awesomeness you can discuss as a family
•?A little exercise that represents a top takeaway from each unit
•?Games the whole family can play together.

As for games, now there are two kinds for you and your kids in the Be Internet Awesome ecosystem. There’s Interland, the interactive game they can play by themselves or with you while you watch, and now there are your Be Internet Awesome Tips and Activities, little digital safety games for the whole family to play together (at least 2-4 people). You could make each of these part of “Family Game Night” or use it as a fun way to cap off a discussion about one of the Tips. Whether with “Charades,” “Password Scramble” or whichever game you pick, what better way to learn safety than to get goofy together and have fun?
