Australian Charity Offers A Digital Licence With Internet Quizzes For Students

Just like the old pen licence you had to get back in primary school, kids now have the opportunity to try their hand at a “digital” licence. Rather than being an official document to certify children as internet citizen, the Digtial Licence is a project by The Alannah and Madeline Foundation to educate children on the ins and outs of the online world.

Acquisition of a licence is a two-step process. First, you’ll need to purchase access for $30, after which a series of eight quizzes need to be passed successfully. If you’re a Year Six teacher, it’s possible to get a classroom licence for free, thanks to Google and community options are also available.

The website states the program was developed in conjunction with a “team of experts”, of which you can find more information on via the site’s Thank You section. For those after testimonials, a few can be found here.

A sample quiz is available if you need a preview and the video above explains some of the concepts involved.
