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.

Packed with good stuff, this guide will help you and your kids discuss, learn, and think together about the five areas of Internet awesomeness:
-Smart, Share with Care
-Alert, Don’t Fall for Fake
-Strong, Secure Your Secrets

Cuando primero creamos el programa Sé genial en Internet, lo diseñamos para
los educadores. Sé genial en Internet es un programa multifacético diseñado para
enseñarles a los niños las habilidades que necesitan para preservar su seguridad y
actuar con inteligencia en línea. Este tema es importante para enseñar en la clase
pero también en el hogar. El hogar siempre será la base del aprendizaje de los
niños, y los hábitos saludables en línea no son la excepción.
Sin embargo, la tecnología se mueve a gran velocidad y adelantarse a los
acontecimientos puede ser todo un desafío. Hemos creado esta guía para que
las familias puedan incorporar y practicar buenos hábitos digitales con mayor
facilidad en sus vidas. Esta guía te ayudará a ti y a tus hijos a evaluar, analizar y
aprender juntos las cinco lecciones fundamentales de la genialidad en Internet:
Inteligente, Comparte con cuidado
Alerta, No caigas en trampas
Seguro, Protege tus secretos
Amable, Ser amable es genial
Valiente, Si tienes dudas, pregunta
Cada una de estas áreas es un componente clave del programa Sé genial en
Internet, que se utiliza cada vez en más escuelas. Si tus hijos están aprendiendo
con este programa en la escuela, esta guía te ayudará a seguir el ritmo y reforzar
lo que aprenden en el clase.

Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

We all know there are all kinds of ways to learn things—tips, educational games, skits, workbook exercises and, ok, lectures too (but don’t worry, no lectures here!). 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?

Construct and measure the energy efficiency and solar heat gain of a cardboard model house. Use a light bulb heater to imitate a real furnace and a temperature sensor to monitor and regulate the internal temperature of the house. Use a bright bulb in a gooseneck lamp to model sunlight at different times of the year, and test the effectiveness of windows for passive solar heating.

Students first read an article on how SpaceX's reusable rockets could revolutionize space travel. They then conduct an investigation with straw rockets and a rubber band to test how elastic potential energy is converted into gravitational potential energy. Students then read an article on the new SpaceX rocket design that could take hundreds of people to Mars and discuss where humans should explore in outer space.

Exploring YouTube Confidently: A family guide to supervised experiences
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

When kids explore the world of online video, they can be empowered to explore their interests, learn from different perspectives and foster a sense of belonging. And with videos from creators around the world — from DIY tutorials and music, to learning, gaming, shows and more — there is so much to dive into. To help your child get all the benefits that the online world has to offer, parents play an important role in helping kids learn the rules of the road — and where to turn if they need help. As kids grow up, their interests expand. They need to gain independence and find new ways to learn and create. And that need for growing independence in a digital world can be a source of anxiety for parents. That’s why we want to help parents and caregivers work with their kids to build the skills needed to safely and confidently navigate YouTube through a supervised experience.

We’ve worked with our friends at the PTA, the Parent Zone, and the Net Safety collaborative to create this guide for you to review with your kids before giving them access to YouTube in a supervised account. Use this as a starting point to help your kid learn how to browse and watch video content responsibly, but remember to check in and keep the conversation going.
