Grok Academy is a proud supporter of Cybermarvel - a collaborative initiative of the NSW, ACT, TAS, SA, NT and VIC education departments, and Cyber Security education providers across Australia. The initiative aims to:
On this page, you'll find all of the Cyber Security resources Grok has provided to support the Cybermarvel program.
Students play a board game where progression towards winning involves responding appropriately to a range of risky situations, designed to replicate their interactions online.
You can also view the cards (or print them out) from these slideshows:
Students follow simple algorithms to create safe passwords they can use for their various accounts.
A series of short modules that explore a range of cyber security topics covering safe behaviours online. Designed to be done as separate modules, or as a complete lesson sequence.
Download the lesson plans supporting these modules below:
This Challenge teaches personal information security using the innovative approach of thinking from a hacker’s point-of-view. Students will learn to value the importance of passwords, as well as discover just how vulnerable private information can be online.
You can also download the supporting lesson plan.
What information is safe to share online? This interactive (Powerpoint) classroom presentation will help you understand the risks.
Learn about whether to share, not share or be cautious with different pieces of your information. Decide and see if you agree or disagree with our assessment and discuss with your classmates.
You can also download the physical version and create the cards to use the resource in an unplugged environment.
Learn about purposeful sharing, password security, multi-factor authentication and phishing. This is an updated version of our widely successful Information Security course.
This Challenge demonstrates the importance of security in web applications by exposing typical flaws in websites that can be exploited using tools built into the web browser.
Learn the many different ways data can be hidden inside other data, including through classical substitution ciphers. This version of our popular course involves no programming, and is a great starting point to understanding fundamental principles of cryptographic techniques.
This Challenge teaches the fundamentals of wired and wireless networks and the underlying principles of digital systems using BBC micro:bits.
In this course, you'll learn what it's like to look into a data breach, and follow various data trails to work out what might have happened.
A Navy captain is held captive inside his ship. A major landmark has gone dark. And weapons are pointed at Sydney’s busiest sites...
It’s all connected, and it’s up to students from around Australia to free the captain, track down the culprit, and stop them.
Students on this cyber adventure will need to trace clues, solve puzzles, and figure out how to stop a large scale simulated cyber attack before it’s too late.
Discover how cyber security professionals use modelling tools to identify system threats and understand the risks they pose.This Challenge also explores how threats are prioritised, and possible mitigation strategies to lower the risk.
A collection of posters you can print and put up on your wall to remind students of critical cyber security principles.
A collection of webinars that talk through using some of the resources shared on this page, and discuss how cyber security is reflected in the curriculum.
