The Internet is like a big city with great places to go, but it is essential to navigate it carefully. Students need to learn the skills to safely explore the digital world, but it also takes helpers (people with cybersecurity jobs) or “Cybersecurity Superstars” to help keep the Internet safe for everyone. Once a student learns how to navigate the internet safely, those skills could someday use them to get a job as a Cybersecurity Superstar!
Faux Paw the Techno Cat’s Cybersecurity Superstars Curriculum consists of four lesson plans designed to help students in grades 1-4 learn all about the skills needed for Internet safety, privacy, ethics, and introduces cybersecurity jobs that help keep people safe online. By combining concepts like safe downloading and uploading, recognizing threats to privacy, and making good choices while on the internet with cybersecurity jobs that use those skills, young students are introduced to the cybersecurity career field in a way that is relatable and accessible to their age group.
