03 March, 4pm, Cyber Citizen – online cyber safety resources – Palo Alto Networks

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

09 March 11am, Send Your Code into SPACE – Live Code-Along

Join @DigiLearnScot and @CodingLorna for this “out of this world” code-along session where learners will write code that will be sent to SPACE! Astro Pi: Mission Zero is an amazing opportunity to bring coding and space together. It allows your learners to write some code which is sent up to space and run on the International Space Station (ISS) later in the year.

This code-along does NOT use Scratch, instead we will use the emulator Trinket so please check that you can access this in your school.

We will be hosting a short teacher session on Wednesday 2nd March at 4 pm to help ensure you have everything you need to feel comfortable and prepared for the Code-along. We will also share a briefing sheet once you have signed up. We understand that this might feel like a big leap in coding, but we will take you and your class through this step by step. Lorna has supported Mission Zero many times over the years and is ready to support your class too. This session is suitable for second level and above (P6 and above).
