Using E-Textiles in the classroom

Last year, the Exploring Computer Science team put together an e-textiles unit as an alternative to Unit 6 robotics, in which students complete projects using clothing, accessories, or home furnishings to embed electronics and computational elements. The unit is design focused, hands-on, and integrative—a perfect combination for engaging your students! Join us on Wednesday, February 20 at 7:30pm ET to hear from a teacher who has taught this unit and learn more about successes, challenges, teaching tips, and project ideas for e-textiles.

Teaching Cybersecurity in CSP (or Any CS Class): Introducing the Security Mindset

Join us for a SIGCSE pre-symposium workshop! Introducing the Teaching Security lessons Wednesday, February 27, 2019 (before SIGCSE proper) 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon Greenway A (2nd floor), Hyatt Regency Minneapolis Free and open to all! More info: https://teachingsecurity.org/sigcse-2019/ The “Teaching Security” lessons introduce the broad idea of cybersecurity through threat modeling and the human-centered nature of authentication. They are prepared by subject-matter experts with research backgrounds in the technical workings and social implications of cybersecurity. While our lessons were specifically designed to meet the cybersecurity learning objectives in the AP Computer Science Principles framework, they are appropriate for any high school computer science class or program (including dedicated cybersecurity classes). This will be an interactive workshop for CS educators at all levels; no previous cybersecurity experience required. Participants will learn how to begin developing the “security mindset” by teaching students a simplified version of threat modeling. We will also preview lessons on authentication and social engineering. In addition, the workshop will provide opportunities for attendees who teach cybersecurity learning objectives to share their own strategies. Why teach cybersecurity? Cybersecurity is vital to a technology-driven society. Daily headlines demonstrate that we cannot ignore the potential security risks inherent to our increasingly more networked lives. Cybersecurity is a growing job field — but even for students that don’t go on to pursue cybersecurity careers, it is crucial to have some level of security awareness! But until very recently, young people were usually not introduced to the intrigue and opportunity of cybersecurity until advanced undergraduate CS courses. However, the real world implications and applied nature of the topic lends itself well to engaging a wide audience, key to catching the interest of a diverse group of students in CS at a younger age. Presenters: Dan Garcia, Buffie Holley, Serge Egelman, (remotely) Maritza Johnson For more info and to RSVP: https://teachingsecurity.org/sigcse-2019/
