Grok Academy and CORE Education have created Cyber Skills Aotearoa, a programme to develop cyber security skills and dispositions in ākonga in Years 6-13. Cyber Skills Aotearoa consists of classroom ready activities and challenges that could be used within Hangarau Matihiko | Digital Technologies programmes and to raise awareness of cyber security careers. Following the Information Privacy and Security (Years 9-13) course released earlier this year, two new courses are now available and free for schools to use:
Information Privacy and Security (Years 6-8)
Designed specifically for primary school students in years 6 to 8, this course presents the concepts of sharing information and securing passwords and accounts through a series of conversations with the characters from a fictional social media world.
Web Application Security
This course demonstrates the importance of security in web applications by exposing typical flaws in websites that can be exploited using tools built into the web browser. Students completing the course get a sense of how web applications are built, how to implement good security practices and the differences between ethical and non-ethical hacking.
