In this exclusive 10-part series, cybersafety educator and author Claudiu Popa, founder of the KnowledgeFlow Foundation invites an exceptional group of special guests to take part in grounded discussions on the promise and myth of edtech, from the original intentions to catalyze learning through technology to the privacy-invasive practices that may impact generations of students across Canada and the United States. Packed full of cybersecurity examples, amusing anecdotes, relevant advice and intellectual ammunition, the unmissable CybersecurED series is aimed at educators, parents and administrators who truly care about maximizing the potential and safety of educational technology in the modern classroom. Truly a show for everyone!

Teachers are often mandated to use board-approved edtech, but does it pass muster and who is accountable for privacy failures and embarrassing security snafus? Special Guest Timothy King discusses the best ways to ensure responsible technology adoption in the classroom and shares important statistics ‘from the trenches’.
