Cybersecurity for teachers

Young people often do not recognize risks and do not take the appropriate security measures. Some don't even care.

Cybersecurity for teachers

»Cyber ​​Security in Schools« pilot training for teachers

Playful, exciting, easy to learn - the aim of the project "Cyber Security in Schools", funded by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT), is to make teachers fit for cybersecurity so that they can then pass on the knowledge they have acquired to their students in school.

Studies show that about half of 11-16 year olds in the EU are exposed to various internet risks. Also, research shows that more than 55% of 8-year-olds are already "online", and up to 100% of 14-year-olds and older. It is therefore important that teenagers and young adults learn to handle their data responsibly online. This includes knowing what happens to their data on the Internet, the extent to which they trust websites and how they can protect their data.

We support teachers in acquiring the necessary cybersecurity skills so that they can teach them comprehensively in their schools. The "Cyber Security in Schools" training course offers teachers of all subjects from primary school to secondary school a practical introduction based on didactically and pedagogically prepared teaching/learning materials. Special previous knowledge is not required.

These four areas deal with important aspects of cybersecurity. In addition, corresponding teaching materials and examples for the design of teaching units are provided for each module, for example a set of slides for teachers, game instructions, worksheets and specific tasks.

The online training consists of the following modules:

1. How do I move on the internet? Risks and dangers  
2. Passwords and data protection Create secure passwords  
3. Data protection and Big Data
Digital Footprint  
4. Citizen science Positive sides of data collection
