New Delhi, May 28: Google India on Monday announced a fun, yet educational summer campaign that will help children across the country spend more time learning and making new discoveries, as well as teaching them how to become responsible explorers of the web. As part of the campaign, named #SummerWithGoogle, Google assigned an activity to the kids. They will release one assignment every week for four weeks, the tech giant said in a blogpost.
The assignment ranges from exploring the country that is home to all the Pandas in the world on Google Earth, to saying ‘Gracias’ and ‘Por Favor’ as they learn phrases in Spanish and other languages on Google Translate, to taking dramatic virtual tours of museums to make their own gallery on Google Arts & Culture; and ultimately building their very own app to share their summer experience. Each assignment will also carry questions on the four fundamental codes of being Internet Awesome and teach the young internet explorers a lesson or two on how to be — Internet Smart, Internet Alert, Internet Strong, Internet Kind and Internet Brave, the blogpost said. Google has also partnered with “Kidzania” to set-up a “Summer with Google” experience zone where kids will be encouraged to take a virtual tour and learn about the essentials of being safe on the Internet. “The entire campaign will combine real world projects with virtual learning experiences and will equip kids with the right digital skills so when they return to school post this summer, they are Internet Awesome,” Mohanty noted.
