As part of the global program, we created Google Interland. An easy-to-play game that prepares children to be on guard against Internet threats including hackers, cyberbullies and phishers – and helps children navigate safely and responsibly in the digital world.
The digital world connects people from all over the world and has in many ways democratized knowledge. However, being safe online is becoming a larger issue, and with children becoming more involved in the digital world at a younger age, it’s growing into a vital issue. How can we help younger and younger children to become safer online?
Using our expertise in WebGL development, we created a game users were able to play directly in their web browser.
Immersive environments for the benefit of joyful learning.
We discovered early on that for introducing these helpful tips for children, it’s important to create something that inspires playfulness, creativity and yet conveys the message of staying safe online. Therefore North Kingdom collaborated on a global program with Google, called Be Internet Awesome. The program consists of five fundamental learnings – Be Internet Smart, Alert, Strong, Kind and Brave.

"Google understands how embedded technology is in the lives of young people and the importance of reaching them at a young age and in an engaging manner."
For teachers, a curriculum was designed with lesson plans that has received the ISTE Seal of Alignment. In the first four months, the curriculum was downloaded 30 000 times and Interland was played over 163 000 hours. Since it’s release, Google Interland has been localized in Spanish, Arabic and Portuguese, helping children all over the world to become safer online. Google Interland has also been awarded with European Design Awards, FWA Top 100, FWA site of the day and Awwwards site of the day.
It's an easy-to-play game that prepares children to be on guard against hackers, cyberbullies and phishers - and helps them navigate safely in the digital world. Play all of the four different levels and and become internet awesome!
