Implementing Cybersecurity Education

at the Middle School Level

Teach Cyber's Jenny Daugherty and Sabrina Smiley teamed up with Jen Langdon and Mark Loepker to discuss the critical need for cybersecurity in the middle school classroom.
One topic of discussion was cybersecurity being integrated cross-curricularly at the middle school level by integrating cyber into core subjects.

For example, a cipher wheel can be constructed in a math or history class and then used to explain encryption and decryption.

The Cyber Center for Education and Innovation (CCEI), part of the National Cryptologic Foundation, presents the Cyber Education Community of Interest (COI).
The COI is a space where middle school educators (counselors, teachers, librarians, support staff, administrators, home school parents, and more) will gather to collaborate, share, and explore resources with each other and from partner organizations to bring cyber education to their students.
