About the Series:

Microsoft is teaming up with education training specialist Tablet Academy to deliver a series of events aimed at supporting school leaders and classroom educators to further embed and benefit from the features provided by Microsoft tools. The focus of these events is to help institutions looking to develop both their in-class delivery and remote programmes. 

Event Summary:

Ransomware and cyberattacks seem to be increasing month on month.
A quick a glance at the news reveals how prevalent they are in the education sector and these are only the ones that are publicly reported.
How do you support educators and non-teaching staff to be more effectively prepared to deal with phishing, scams and other cyber safety issues?

Session Overview:

This session is designed for school leaders who are looking at how they can support their staff to reduce the risk of data in their school or college being compromised.
Enabling features and configuring technical settings are really important, but equally important is an awareness and attitude towards cyber security amongst staff.
This session will outline common cyber security risks and issues that  education institutions face and how to prepare staff to combat them.

As principal STEAM consultant, Ross now provides STEAM Curriculum, Lesson plan, and engagement activity development services both internally and for industry partners. He also works with Industry partners to manage a portfolio of national STEAM competitions for students of all ages, backgrounds and interests. Most recently Ross has managed a national 3D printing competition which gave schools the opportunity to explore CAD and 3D printing for 2 months free of charge.

His latest initiative was to deliver train tutors from 20 colleges across the West Midlands in teaching of an understanding of AI using Project Based Learning. This project was commissioned by the West Midlands Combined Authority, an organisation representing over 20 Local Government Authorities.
