Google will give out all-in-one kits that include a Google Pixelbook and presentations covering a variety of topics regarding online safety including phishing and scams, privacy and security, cyberbullying and “inappropriate” content. They also include some decorative reminders of best practices like banners and posters in both English and Spanish.
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.
Google will also be awarding grants worth USD 1,000 to local PTAs in every state in the US to help facilitate the workshops.
Google won’t be making the internet safety kit available to consumers, though. Instead it will work with schools and parent organizations to distribute them and set up workshops at schools.
