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!

Cybersafety education is ideally positioned to teach children truly foundational principles of identity protection, responsible technology use, privacy ethics and cybersecurity safeguards. How can we do a better job and what challenges must we overcome as society evolves through the adoption of modern technology practices? Special Guest: Diana Barbosa, Director of Education for the ICTC shares insights from the CyberTitan program and what it will take to make the transition from “digital literacy” to simply “literacy”.
