Charting the Digital Frontier: A Revolutionary Training for Safer Classrooms

To bolster information safety and privacy in educational settings, the University of Salamanca’s Institute of Education Sciences and the Technologically Enhanced Learning Research Group (GRETEL) at Ramón Llull University – La Salle are excited to introduce a pioneering virtual training called “Data Protection and Cybersecurity for Educators.” This initiative, a key part of the SPADATAS project, is designed to arm teachers with cutting-edge practices in safeguarding data and ensuring cybersecurity across various educational levels.

The training aligns with the University of Salamanca’s Teacher Training Plan, aiming to equip educators with essential knowledge on student data protection, the use of secure tools in the classroom, and the identification of digital vulnerabilities, among other pivotal topics.

Covering a spectrum from classroom data protection to fundamental cybersecurity, this program is set to prepare educators to lead the way in teaching these critical subjects to their students. The endeavor underlines SPADATAS’s commitment to deepening the understanding of data fragility and enhancing digital literacy and responsible data usage in educational contexts.

By focusing on fostering awareness among educators, students, and stakeholders about the delicate nature of data and promoting responsible data management practices, this initiative marks a significant step towards safeguarding the digital well-being of the educational community.
