This program is designed to instruct teachers in cybersecurity in support of the GenCyber principles and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The camp is designed to introduce, develop, and reinforce skill-sets of computer science and information technology of teachers, specifically in cybersecurity topics.
This includes the GenCyber teacher program overview concepts. All Texas Teachers are encouraged to attend to learn how to incorporate Cybersecurity into their curriculum!
Teacher-students electing to participate in this program will have zero cost thanks to the National Security Agency, National Science Foundation, and GenCyber Sponsorship. In addition, teacher-students will receive a 4GB RAM laptop loaded with Kali Linux to use during the week’s instruction, and then to take back with them to their various school districts. The curriculum is to be deployed in a hands-on method inclusive of multiple learning modalities. With this, teacher-students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge from visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles as the teaching modality will be inclusive to reach as many of the different cognitive learning domains as possible.
The 2018 camps are concluded for this year. Please check back in Spring of 2019 for next year’s dates.
