HackShield in the Class (HackShield in de Klas) is an educational program about online threats, made for primary schools all over the world. There are several quests with a cybersecurity topic available. We call these the “Class Quests”. A Class Quest is designed to use in classes and other groups. Important cybersecurity topics such as ‘What is internet’, ‘fake news’ and ‘cyber bullying’ will be discussed. These classes give a solid base from which a teacher can dig into these topics together with the kids. After school, kids can learn and play more with these topics with the additional individual assignments: Missions.
Learning to interact safely on the internet is becoming more and more of a challenge. Think of the growing amount of phishing mails, Whatsapp scams or stolen passwords. But when do you actually learn about this? HackShield in the Class stimulates kids to take matters into their own hands. It educates children in a fun way and motivates them to protect themselves and others around them against cyber crimes. HackShield brings joy and enthusiasm to the classroom, triggers their knowledge and gives the teachers all the tools they need to give a fun class.
HackShield in the Class comes with many pro’s:
– The game excites kids.
– Kids learn even more if they play the game individually. They learn from each other and you get to understand their perspective even more.
– There is not much for the teacher to prepare, and they’ll get handed over a fun class about cyber crimes, with all ins and outs in a very accessible, interactive way.
Every classquest comes with a lesson letter, which explains step by step the topics that are going to be discussed in the Class Quest. But, there is even more in there: We added learning goals, discussed concepts and fun videos to use. Easy does it!
