During the workshops, which are held at Google at 111 8th Ave. in Chelsea, parents and kids will be led through an Online Safety Gallery exhibit that teaches Internet safety in an interactive way. Kids can play around with creating strong passwords, take quizzes on Internet safety (some questions are tricky!) and learn which online situations are best to discuss with parents. They can also play in Interland and learn without even realizing it! All parts of the exhibit lead kids to be “smart, alert, strong, kind, and brave” on the Internet. Families are provided with tools for communication as well, and kids are taught to speak up if they see something inappropriate happening online.
