Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum – Know your web – Good to Know – Google At Google we believe in the power of education and the promise of technology to improve the lives of students and educators -- leading the way for a new generation of learning in the classroom and beyond. But no matter what subject you teach, it is important for your students to know how to think critically and evaluate online sources, understand how to protect themselves from online threats from bullies to scammers, and to think before they share and be good digital citizens. Google has partnered with child safety experts at iKeepSafe, and also worked with educators themselves to develop lessons that will work in the classroom, are appropriate for kids, and incorporate some of the best advice and tips that Google's security team has to offer. Class 1: Become an Online Sleuth In this class, students will identify guidelines for evaluating the credibility of content online. We are always looking to improve these classes.

Online Hate and Free Speech Hate in a Free Speech Environment Many argue that the best response to hate speech is not criminalization, but more speech. A classic example of this took place during the 1990s when Canadian Ken McVay, founder of the anti-hate Nizkor Project, spent over a decade attempting to engage hate activist and Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel in an online discussion. McVay claimed that the Zundelsite refused “to participate in the interactive forums of the Internet” by avoiding discourse with those who disagreed with its views in favour of spreading hate and recruiting supporters. (The website now includes online forums, although it has since come to symbolize other tensions and challenges relating to free speech and hate on the Internet.) Despite McVay’s appeal for the need for public debate, the free speech environment that characterized discussion forums in the late 1980s and early 1990s made many Internet service providers (ISPs) uncomfortable.
