Linda McCarthy will be talking with Fran Staniec, Technology Teacher, Taft High School, Chicago
Taft High School in Chicago is one of the schools leading the pack by creating lesson plans and teaching their freshmen important safety measures. For example: how to create safe passwords, how to configure a secure Facebook account, antivirus installation and software updating, responsible posting for ALL devices, antibullying, and Internet safety.
Staniec will talk about how they use the free books to create lesson plans and teach Internet safety and security in the classroom. Ask yourself: are your students ready to hit the ground running when it comes to security and entering the professional world?
