iKeepSafe is dedicated to the education of families on how to stay safe online. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Google to develop curriculum that educators can use in the classroom to teach what it means to be a responsible digital citizen.

The curriculum is designed to be interactive, discussion filled and allow students to learn through hands-on and scenario activities. Each workshop contains a resource booklet for both educators and students that can be downloaded in PDF form, presentations to accompany the lesson and animated videos to help frame the conversation

I like this idea for having students evaluate the media they are using:
students, for example, can ask:
Who created or paid for the message?Why was it created?Who is the message designed to reach?How does the message capture the audience's attention? How might different people understand this message differently?What values or points of view are included or excluded and why?  Where can I find out more to verify the information?What can I do with this information?
