Gr8 Computer Science Teaching Ideas Number 03: CyberFirst Education Pack by NCSC Cyber Schools Hub and Emma Williams
This is the third blogpost in a series for the Facebook group Gr8 Computer Science Teaching Ideas. Thank you to Emma Williams for this resource:
This unit of work is an introduction to Cyber Security. The NCSC kindly provided the materials for the Cyber Adventurers course and I adapted in order to facilitate learning in schools. These resources were produced as part of the NCSC Cyber Schools Hub – details here https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/news/uks-first-cyber-schools-hubs-announced
It is designed to showcase the varied roles and jobs that exist in the field. The course is designed for 11-14 year olds and can be delivered at any point in key stage 3. It can be run in a Cyber club or as a teaching unit at key stage 3.
The lesson plans are designed to include practical tasks. There is a unit assessment that has been developed in line with the Computing pathways framework which can be adapted to suit a schools. The lessons can be delivered as stand-alone lessons if required.
