Welcome back Educators!

The 2017-18 school year is well underway, and the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) would like to officially welcome you back to another year of innovative teaching and ICT learning. For our returning FIT educators, we trust your classrooms are full-steam ahead with 21st century learning and discovery. We all know that regardless of what career path your students choose, ensuring they develop cyber security skills in the classroom is extremely important - the internet and being online continues to be a big part of their everyday lives. Recognizing the importance of this, our team has been working on a new exciting opportunity that you can partake in with your students.  Through our Focus on IT (FIT) program, we are excited to continue CyberTitan, a new innovated way to educate students about cybersecurity.
 
CyberTitan
CyberTitan is the Canadian link to the US-based National Youth Cyber Education Program, CyberPatriot- a comprehensive online competition that scores students across North America in real time. This unique and engaging environment will provide students immediate feedback on their level of cyber security comprehension. CyberTitan’s intent is to train students to the level where they will be able to compete in America’s live competition, CyberPatriot this year and in the future, teams will also compete across Canada to reach Canadian finals! This competition was put in to place by the (US) Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire students toward careers in c​yber security or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to the nation's future. CyberTitan’s goal is to create learning opportunities for students to engage in hands-on simulated environments that will help them develop necessary skills to pursue post-secondary education programs or to work in this industry as well as to identify roles they can play to help secure our systems.

Registration is open until October 5th 2016.

On behalf of ICTC, welcome to the 2016-17 school year – together, let us inspire, transform, and create an innovative learning experience for all of our FIT students.

Sincerely,
The ICTC Team
