Why (And How) Teachers and Education Should Start Learning and Teaching Cyber-Security | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Why (And How) Teachers Should Start Learning and Teaching Cyber-Security . What should get be taught and learned more in the 21st Century while using ICT?

 

In the 21st Century, Education has a BIG responsibility to adapt to the very quick change in the world and to teach the students the knowledge they need and which are required to fulfill the market’s needs!

 

The market’s needs are ALSO to employ people with the basics of Cyber-Security knowledge as a modern company needs to protect its online reputation and a data loss could be lethal to them, their ruin eventually! SO, the new employees is the students coming out of school, College, High school, Universities; ALL of them need to have the basic knowledge of  Cyber-Security to be competitive in a working market where there is more and more unemployment worldwide…

 

===> A company would take advantage of a new employee who as already the necessary knowledge of Cyber-Security as the company doesn’t need to train him, which saves it a lot of money! <===

There has been a lot of talk both in the U.S. and internationally about a shortage in skilled IT professionals - with a predicted 864,000 IT vacancies in Europe alone by 2015.

 

What are these skills that organizations are looking for? This infographic by via resource highlights the top skills that make a successful information security professional and skills the future workforce will need to tackle emerging threats.

Just a reminder...
Chris Carter's curator insight, September 10, 2016 6:32 AM
Oh, yes indeed. And there is no better way I've found than to combine classroom cypher lessons with PBS's Nova Labs Cybersecurity Lab simulation (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/labs/lab/cyber/). It is an engrossing game that teaches both the how and, critically, the why of cybersecurity. Kids will learn to make robust passwords while they also learn to spot phising attacks, DDoS attacks, and many other cyber risks.

A List of Brain-based Strategies to Create Effective eLearning

A List of Brain-based Strategies to Create Effective eLearning | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Perhaps with school starting up again, I am more aware of the number of posts that look at metacognition, and how our brains learn. This post from SH!FT provides the acronym B.R.A.I.N. B.A.S.E.D to help you remember key components of designing a course. Although the post is designed for eLearning the same concepts are also important in a face-2-face environment.

Let's look at the B in brain. It stands for the "brain's time clock." How long can students engage in active learning vs. passive learning? How long can a student online stay engaged (or a student in your classroom)? For each letter there is an explanation and in most cases links to additional resources.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, September 4, 2014 4:33 PM

Important things to think about whether designing an online or a face-to-face course.

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"Stories have captivated us as a species since the dawn of man. Through stories, we have passed on traditions, remembered the past, and carried information across the millennia. 

And it's not just our ancestors who harnessed the power of stories, either. Stories still work to reach people, which is why we see businesses turning to the power of storytelling in branding efforts, marketing campaigns, corporate strategies, and even eLearning courses and business presentations."

Everybody likes a good story.

niftyjock's curator insight, August 24, 2014 6:16 PM

Once upon a time... Narratives are a great way to get information across. 

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, August 25, 2014 8:00 PM

Do you work with older students? Then you will enjoy this article about storytelling in learning. Great for introducing studnets to the need to structure online presentations as well as traditional, writing tasks.


Reading a good online presentation (from TED maybe) and then asking students to map the presentation to the story outline in this article will reinforce this learning for them.


Let me know if you give this a go - I've done similar activities with videos and story structures in primary schools and the students loved investigating the hidden structure!
