We live in a technologically-driven world that is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Despite the positive influence of technology on human existence, this comfort has come at the cost of cybersecurity threats. Cyber-attacks are very likely to occur if you utilize a technological device in any way.
This course offers educators essential knowledge on cybersecurity concepts and practices. It will provide educators with both theoretical and practical knowledge in order for them to be able to teach others how to stay safe online, during their teaching sessions with the aim to motivate and encourage their learners to reach their full potential. On the completion of the course, participants will have a better understanding of the concept and benefits of Cybersecurity but they will also be able to apply Cybersecurity content during their teaching sessions.

This course is targeted at educators (primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs) who would like to include Cybersecurity teachings into their lessons/sessions.
The course is focusing on practical applications of Cybersecurity concepts in the educational process. Each participant is expected to understand basic concepts of staying safe while using a computer or a mobile device online.

To improve educators’ scientific and pedagogical background in the field of Cyber Security and help them and their learners stay safe online.
