Our project aim was to develop a professional development opportunity centered on digital security. Our team members worked very hard to find resources online to support and enhance our “work in progress” presentation. We are looking to implement this professional development seminar sometime in the next school year. The seminar will focus on making our teachers aware of the dangers of being online and how to safeguard yourself and your students.
The issue we are addressing is cyber-safety. We are developing our project to make people aware of the dangers of living in the digital age we live in, and the steps needed to insure that they stay safe online and safeguard their identities.
Our team wanted to develop the resources needed to design the professional development seminar for our faculty.We have successfully completed this and have made our findings public at this site
. Looking ahead, we plan to compile this information into our professional development presentation.We will know we have been successful based on the feedback from our faculty via an online survey.
Compile information into professional development seminar, choose a date and time in the upcoming school year to present the information to our faculty, assess successfulness of presentation by analyzing feedback surveys, fine tune seminar for possible presentation to parents and/or students.
We feel we have made very good progress with our research on digital security. We have successfully narrowed the wide array of information available to suit the needs of our potential audiences. We are still actively working on the research part of the project.
All of our information can be found on this site
. We used this site to collaborate and add our findings because of the ease of use.
