Cyber Skills Aotearoa - Information Privacy and Security course available now


Grok Academy and CORE Education have created Cyber Skills Aotearoa, a programme to develop cyber security skills and dispositions in ākonga in Years 6-13.

Cyber Skills Aotearoa consists of classroom-ready activities and challenges that could be used within Hangarau Matihiko | Digital Technologies programmes and to raise awareness of cyber security careers. 

The first course from the Cyber Skills Aotearoa programme: Information Privacy and Security is out now.

The Information Privacy and Security course covers:

  • purposeful sharing
  • password security
  • password reuse and multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • phishing and scams
  • careers in cyber security.

The course is free for Years 9-13 and is available in both English and te reo Māori.

Access the course here:

The Year 6-8 course is coming soon.

Kaiako can also request sets of professionally printed cyber cards - a useful classroom resource to engage ākonga in rich discussions about online privacy and security.
