I couldn’t imagine what the
world will be like without Internet today. It’d be nothing but chaos. – I’ve tried preparing him for
the real world. I’m not with him 24/7,
so I can’t protect him all the time, can I? – Kids are inherently curious,
and on the Internet, there’s so much knowledge
and information that I need to make sure that
as an educator that I’m teaching them the
skills that they need to start to look out
for themselves. The Be Internet Awesome program is designed to teach students
in a fun way how to be safe online. You’re on a web page and you see
a button that says “Click Here and you could win a million
dollars!” What do you think would happen?
Yeah, Matthew? – Get scammed. – Maybe you’d get scammed.
– Whatever you’re on could get a virus. – What do you do if someone you
don’t know tries to follow you? – I block them, because I have a private
account. – Excellent. – We’re about to journey into a
place that’s called Interland to learn how to be Internet
awesome. – Yes. [indistinct chatter] – 100 points! – Good job, Zaire. All right! – You got it. – What they do online now is something that’s going to
follow them for the rest of their lives. The lessons we’re doing and the
activities that we’re doing in the classroom are making an
impact. They are developing the skills
that they need in order to be able to keep
themselves safe online. – Most likely it’d be real. – [laughs] It’s fake.
Look how Internet is spelled. – Then I would have got phished. – [laughs] Yeah. – Nowadays, the Internet is the
way people see you. – Anybody can post anything on
the Internet. And sometimes those things
that they post are not okay. – Be respectful to others.
If somebody gets hurt, try to help them. – If you come across something
that’s either inappropriate or, like, bullying
or just anything that makes you feel
uncomfortable, you should tell somebody. – Be Internet Awesome. [bright music]
