WITH Steve Morrill: International Cyber Teacher Mentor in Australia

Steve Morrill is currently the Director of Technology & Cyber Science at Loyola Blakefield in Towson Maryland. Prior to joining Loyola Blakefield (secondary) he spent 13 years managing and teaching technology in higher education.

Steve is also the founder of the Loyola Cyber Science Initiative. The team has had great success over the past few years in different cyber challenges including the Maryland Cyber Challenge, and Air Force Association Cyber Patriot.

Professional development for teachers related to cyber security is of critical importance. All students need a basic foundation in cyber to participate in today’s digital society. Understandably so there are many teachers that do not feel prepared to tackle this subject area in their classes. Cyber is not just a topic reserved for computer science teachers. All disciplines can and should integrate cyber concepts into their lessons….and it is easier than you may think! Through educational tools like CompTIA Cyber Teacher, LifeJourney, and various cyber challenges we will give ALL teachers the confidence to deliver this content to their students.
