October 26 to November 20, 2020 marks Cyber Awareness Month. The four-week K-12 campaign, led by The Educational Computing Network of Ontario (ECNO) raises awareness of the new educational realities of teaching, learning and connecting that students, parents and staff have experienced this past year.
This awareness month emphasizes how we can all do our part to protect against cyber threats in our new learning environments and workspaces.
The campaign theme for this year is “Work, Teach, Learn Remote, Secure and Safe” with an objective of helping everyone in K-12 education – teachers, staff, students and parents – be safer and more secure online.
The campaign is divided into weekly themes which highlight cybersecurity, online privacy and online safety; all important aspects of K-12 learning. Check out this webpage for learning tips and resources each week!
- Theme #1: Work, teach, learn from anywhere
- Theme #2: Why me?
- Theme #3: Think before you click, post or share
- Theme #4: Be smart and safe online
