If there’s one thing kids can’t get enough of, it’s state Senate President Kevin Grantham.
Perhaps that’s why the local lawmaker led off a middle school assembly in Canon City Monday about the importance of online safety.
“The Online Safety Roadshow: How to Be Internet Awesome” stopped at Harrison Middle School with Grantham as its headliner. The program was created by Google.
Grantham was flanked by a couple of Google employees who talked about things such as password safety, scams and being kind to others online.
“With students having greater access to the Internet through cell phones and other devices, it is important that they learn to use these tools responsibly,” Amber Tillman, a Google spokesperson, said in a statement. “The Online Safety Roadshow: How to Be Internet Awesome teaches students how to be smart and safe online through a fun and interactive assembly.”
Google offers its tips online, in case Grantham’s Google show isn’t coming to a town near you.
