Hacking the classroom: engaging students with fun and interactive cybersecurity lessons


In the digital age, cyber security emerges as a critical concern for our society, and it serves as a remarkable means to captivate students in the Digital Technologies curriculum.

In this talk, Grok Academy will explore how to make the theoretical and abstract aspects of the curriculum more practical and hands-on, using cyber security as the context.

We will share an assortment of enjoyable and interactive lessons, developed to help students improve their critical cyber security skills, preparing them for the new components of the WA Computer Science ATAR curriculum.

Grok will show participants how to integrate these skills into your classroom teaching in an effective and engaging way.
