We are thrilled to announce the launch of two new massively open online courses (MOOCs) for K-12 teachers on teaching Cyber Security and Awareness in schools.
Our use of technology across all aspects of our daily lives is increasing and this is the same for our students. Why should we worry about teaching cyber security in schools? We provide our 10 top reasons.
Cyber security provides an increasingly important and relevant context for teaching key areas of the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies and ICT Capabilities. Here we highlight a few example ideas from our latest cyber security MOOC for K-6 Teachers.
The Australian Computing Academy has released a number of exciting cyber security challenges free for school students.
Are you curious about teaching Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning in the classroom but not sure where to start? We engage with AI every day, from using virtual assistants to help us find information quickly to playing with the latest social media filters!
Dr Rebecca Vivian and her international K-12 Computer Science (CS) education colleagues were accepted to present a special workshop session about conducting K-12 quantitative computing education research at the 2020 SIGCSE (Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education) Conference in the US in March. The session aimed to up-skill interested researchers and educators new to research.
As a valued member of our community, we would like to share with you an important update about the face-to-face and lending library components of our K-12 Digital Technologies Education program as we transition to a new phase of teacher and school support.
Ordering hot drinks, such as coffee, at a cafe is a familiar experience to most students and provides an excellent context for students thinking about algorithm design, including conditionals (if/else), lists, loops and variables.
Thank you to all the teachers in the CSER Community for working with us throughout the year. We have loved engaging with you at workshops, in schools and online!
