GenCyber Teacher Camp
November 2017 – Volume 1, Issue 4
Last month we got to catchup, play a game and learn some of the great ways our Teachers have been including material from the 2017 camp in their classrooms.
Brandie D. and Christy W. shared a wonderful presentation about how they’re using BreakoutEDU, Cryptography, Coding and the First Principles in their cross-curricular lessons. We also talked a bit about how Cyberbullying has been a major concern during this first semester of classes. We’ve gathered a good selection of links on the subject below.
