This web site contains information on the Cyber Education for All (CE4A) grant provided to Dakota State University by the National Security Agency for 2017-2018.
The purpose of this grant is to train approximately 25 6-12 teachers on cyber education and cyber security. Those 25 teachers will then teach their students cyber education and cyber security principles during the 2018-2019 school year.
This is significant because cyber education and cyber security are of critical importance. There is a significant gap between the number of people with cyber education and cyber security skills and jobs available. To help close this gap, education needs to start early in the K-12 school systems. Our goal is to work with teachers to help make this happen.
Dakota State is known throughout the nation as a leader in cyber education and cyber security. In addition, Dakota State's heritage mission is teacher education. We are specifically known throughout the region as a leader in preparing our teachers to integrate technology into the classroom effectively. This collaborative effort between DSU's Beacom College of Computer and Cyber Science and the College of Education allows us to leverage our content knowledge in cyber with our pedagogical expertise.
