I'd like to share two resources on this Safer Internet day that I think are really valuable for teachers, children and parents.
Firstly: Be Internet Awesome / Legends
It includes a range of tools: Game for Children, Curriculum for Teachers and Parent resource.
In the US it is reffered to as "Be Internet Awesome," while in the UK link it is "Be Internet Legends"
This activity is to teach children how to make smart decisions online, and can explore the online world with confidence.
Be Internet Awesome / Legends teaches children the basics of digital safety and digital citizenship, while providing a range of resources to assist adults as well.
Be Internet Awesome / Legends provides resources and tools for children, parents and teachers:

Think Before You Share
Check it's For Real
Protect Your Stuff
Respect Each Other
When in Doubt, Discuss
Second is Google for Education, Teacher Centre Course - Digital Citizenship and Safety Course.
I think teachers and parents, and even learners can benefit from this course.
Why teach digital citizenship and safety?
Teach students about internet safety and privacy
Online safety on the Go
Stay safe from phishing and scams
Manage your online reputation
Teaching our children about internet safety, is very important in assisting them to become responsible digital citizens.
If you would like more a presentation about Internet Safety to your students, parents or staff members, please contact me.
