PROBLEM BOOK METADATA
Validated Collaborators and Contributors to this Problem Book
Dr Charles Clarke
This is an Experience Accelerator problem book!
Reimagined opportunities for students to get work relevant experience through live projects that offer internship style outcomes.
Get practical experience and contextualise knowledge and skills acquired during your academic studies, within a real-world scenario.
What concern(s) does this problem book aim to address?
The UK government’s CyberFirst programme is working to improve the cyber resilience of young students, as well as trying to nurture and grow a talent pathway into cyber careers. However, the education system as a whole gives few opportunities to get something extra into the school day, and once subjects and study paths are chosen, there is very little space at all!
How do we create and test a lesson plan for 11-12-year-olds, that introduces them to concepts of cyber security, in a way that is non-technical, intuitive, self-directed, and contextual to their generation?
What are principal aims of this problem book?
To encourage students to think about cyber in relation to their own lives, so they can be more resilient in the way they secure their own devices, identities, and accounts.
To provide opportunities for students to improve their problem solving skills.
Who are the principal stakeholders?
What are the indicative objectives of this problem book?
A Minimum Viable Product (MVP) of 6 sample lesson plans have been created. A starting point for this problem book will be to:
scrutinise, improve and validate the lesson plans.
test lesson plans in live environments.
share feedback, observations and opportunities for lesson plan improvements.
repeat steps 1 - 3 until the end of this problem book project
share outputs as open sources resources.
conduct a project debrief and report on any outcomes and impacts.
