Hi Cara,

Someone from the Oregon Intellectual Freedom Committee might be able to help, and I believe you contacted that group.

FYI, a few organizations have relevant curriculum, and these are two.

Google developed Be Internet Awesome. Unit 2 is about phishing, scams, etc. Maybe some of those activities would work.


Common Sense Media has lessons, too, and some of the ones for older students have been refreshed. For example, the unit for those in grades 6-8 has a lesson on phishing and scams and one on big data.


Anyone can use the materials.

Subject: [OYAN] Speaker on Cyber-Security

Hello OYAN!

October is Cyber Security Awareness month and my TAB is interested in a cyber-security program.  They do NOT want something about cyber bullying (they feel they get that at school). What they said is they don't have confidence in knowing how to be safe online from impersonal attacks.  How to know if they've been hacked.  How to stay safe online.  What to do if you get to a site that tracks you, and how to get out of a bad situation.

This is one of those things that, although I feel like I could put something together for my 1-1.5 hour program, I think it would be better to have an outside speaker.  (They get sick of hearing things from me all the time.)  I'm in Springfield, OR.  Any ideas on who might make a good speaker on such a topic?

It would also be cool if they could do some hands-on thing on the computer to demonstrate the importance of this topic.  (Like maybe show how easy it can be to be hacked.)  Any suggestions on such an activity, in case I do end up teaching this myself?

Thanks for suggestions!  I'm looking to have my fall calendar in place in the next 2 weeks, although this could be pushed back to winter as an activity.
