Technology efforts in response to COVID-19 have demonstrated the need for schools across Michigan to continually grow their cybersecurity practices to protect student information, and secure our networks from active threats. To support these efforts MAISA will work with the Michigan Educational Technology Leaders (METL) to enhance the “Essential Cybersecurity Practices for K12” by creating online professional learning opportunities. These free courses will be available to all Michigan educators through EduPaths. Currently, there are nearly 25,000 Michigan educators registered with EduPath as they continue their professional growth. Professional learning would meet the criteria for State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) and would follow MDE’s quality professional development criteria.
To learn more about EduPaths, register for a free account or log in, please visit EduPaths.org.
Mark your calendars!
The METL Cybersecurity Task Force is currently planning a Cybersecurity Virtual Summit on December 10th & 11th, 2020.
