Cybersecurity in High-school – a Survey
Cybersecurity is a major concern for our societies at large. Children start using internet at early ages and more than 90% of young Europeans are online. Using internet brings a lot of benefits linked to information and communication but it comes with certain risks: privacy violation, identity theft, ransomware, fraudulent usage of debit card, etc. It is therefore of paramount importance that new generations are made aware and kept updated about the major threats, new technologies as well as appropriate individual and collective behaviors in order to reduce risks.
Teachers can play a major role in raising the awareness among their pupils about Cybersecurity and in spreading and disseminating a risk-prevention culture. While they are more and more sensitive to Cybersecurity issues and started acquiring fundamental notions in this area, there is a need for a structured approach to teach cybersecurity related topics to young Europeans.
Within CONCORDIA project, we aim to work out and suggest high-school teachers teaching methodologies and associated materials to utilize when discussing cybersecurity with their pupils. In view of understanding the real needs we have developed a survey via which we plan to collect input from the following audience:
- European high-school Teachers,
- European high school Students
- European Parents of high school students European
- European school Management
The objective of this Survey is three-fold:
- RELEVANCE: To select the most needed topics to be covered in the materials.
- EFFECTIVENESS: To define the most appropriate format for the materials to be developed.
- NOVELTY: To identify areas not (enough) covered by existing programs.
