As educators it is our responsibility to ensure our learners are taught how to be cyber resilient and safer online.
This four-part professional learning programme is designed to develop educators’ knowledge of cyber resilience and internet safety skills and knowledge required to support with learners live their best online lives.
The course links in with other Education Scotland cyber resilience resources and training, such as the Teacher Toolkit, Digital Schools Award Scotland and Cyber Resilience Mentors certification.
Palo Alto Networks will provide a showcase of their Cyber Citizens programmes, a free cyber security resource for educators.
Cybersecurity skills are becoming more relevant than ever before. Children spend a lot of time online, from using online learning platforms, accessing content from the web, through to using social media platforms and messaging apps to communicate with friends and family. Young people need to be armed with the right information to help them navigate their online interactions, and to do so in a safe and secure manner.
This is why Palo Alto Networks developed its Cyber Citizens programme to provide the cybersecurity basics students need to have safer online experiences and become good digital citizens. Lessons are designed so they can be facilitated by anyone, regardless of their knowledge level, with each module tailored to a specific age group.
This event, which has been organised in partnership with Education Scotland and Palo Alto Networks, will showcase the Cyber Citizens material and enable teachers to understand how they will be able to deliver the content in their own classrooms
Join us for this live lesson with Becky from Tech She Can who will lead their Tech for Safety and Security lesson with your learners. The lesson is based around tech used for security and safety both online and offline and the careers in this field. This lesson is all about learning what our learners think tech careers are and who works in tech, before helping them challenge and change those perceptions.
