No matter what post-secondary path a student chooses, the majority of jobs in Canada currently require the use of a computer and basic technical competencies. Students participate in a full or half day of experiential learning activities geared toward information and communications technology (ICT) themes, such as Cybersecurity and Digital Citizenship.
CyberDays are flexible and are designed to meet the needs of the school. The day usually begins with a hands-on, digital skills learning activity, followed by an expert panel discussion of specialists from a field relating to the theme. CyberDays are opportunities for middle and secondary school students to develop digital skills they will need for their future professional lives.
CyberTitan is a National Youth Cyber Education Program with an annual Cyber Defense Competition in the spring of each year. The competition puts teams of secondary school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals responsible for managing the network of a small company.
