Resource Showcase I


Need cybersecurity resources? Need cybersecurity lessons? Need cybersecurity activities to use in your classroom? Stop by the Resource Showcase drop-in session. This drop-in session will allow you to learn more about the resources and explore first-hand how to integrate into the classroom.

Table 1: Start Engineering- Cybersecurity Style: Cybersecurity Career Awareness for Middle and High School Students
Presenters: Stacie Harrison & Robert Black
Description: Seeking to create awareness of cybersecurity careers and pathways? A demonstration of a video, career guidebook and accompanying educational, hands-on activities to help middle school and high school students and teachers learn about the educational pathways and career opportunities in the field of cybersecurity will be shared. Explore a wealth of resources!

Table 2: Open Source Digital Forensics for K-12 Educators
Presenter: Don Davis
Description: This presentation will introduce key digital forensics concepts using free and open source tools. Participants will be guided through basic file recovery and discovery techniques using key Linux tools. Attendees will explore resources, exercises, and a trajectory for developing students' digital forensics interest and career options.

Table 3: SMART Communities Need A SMART Cyber Workforce
Presenter: Minna LeVine
Description: Digitalization continues to disrupt the education market. SMART Learning Environments (SLE) change the way education is provided to students and workforce. Come explore how to access K-12 cybersecurity content and create your own social micro-learning environment to improve cybersecurity education in the K1-2 classroom. Walk away with the resources and steps to design and use a SMART Learning Environment (SLE) to improve student learning in K-12 classrooms

Table 4: Integrating Cybersecurity into the STEM Classroom
Presenter: Kevin Nolten
Description: Cybersecurity education is needed at all grade levels; however, it is often difficult to find viable strategies for seamless integration into the classroom. Learn from national recognized experts on means to integrate cybersecurity into the STEM and humanities classroom. NICERC is an organization that distributes free cyber curriculum to K-12 educators at no cost through a federal grant through the Department of Homeland Security. Teachers will explore resources and activities for teachers to begin integrating cybersecurity into the classroom. All teachers will walk away with ideas for how they can begin teaching this critical subject into the classroom.

Table 5: Don't Be Fooled!: Avoiding Social Engineering and WiFi Spoofing
Presenters: Diane Cornwell & John Romero, TX
Description: Students spend a great deal of time online either on their phone, computer or gaming system. Can they recognize various social engineering attacks? Can they recognize malicious WiFi networks? Come explore resources to help students protect themselves from both. Walk away with a better understanding of various social engineering attacks including pretexting, baiting, tailgaiting, shoulder surfing, and phishing that you and your students may fall victim to. Experience demonstrations of the different social engineering attacks and walk away with resources to use with students. Experience how easy it is to setup a spoofed WiFi network through the use of WiFi Pineapple.

Table 6: NSA Showcase: Cybersecurity Curriculum for K-12 Teachers
Presenters: Blair Taylor & Maureen Turney
Description: Looking for cybersecurity curriculum and resources? The National Cybersecurity Curriculum Program (NCCP), led by NSA, is building sharable curriculum for K-12 teachers and includes free cybersecurity curricula for institutions who wish to educate and prepare cybersecurity graduates. Content is available across a variety of topics, secure coding, networking, ethics, and cybersecurity principles. Educators will walk away with access to over 50 cybersecurity curriculum projects and observe and interact with professors who have created live demos of their projects.

Description: Educational resources that are free and accessible to all educators will be shared. These resources are easily accessible and can be used at most grade levels. Come ready to walk away with at least one gem to incorporate into your current teaching cycle. These activities can easily be structured to fit into most content areas or as a stand-alone activity.

Table 8: Bytes for Breakfast -A Small Rural High School’s Answer to Getting Students Excited About Coding and Cybersecurity
Presenter: Renee Himmelspach & Amanda Campbell
Description: Presenters will share benefits of a partnership with a community college and resources that were helpful with implementation, and curriculum that can be used with hardware limitations. Presenters will also share the opportunities that a coding/cyber club can create in your school. Presenters will show how they started a coding club in their high school with limited funds and tons of imagination and how that impacted students.
