Empowering Digital Citizens of Tomorrow
CyberBytes elevates teachers from basic cyber facts and technology terms to a level of comprehension, application, and analysis.
Personal Development for Teachers
Developed for the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC), CyberBytes will address the need for digital literacy education for teachers in grades K-12. CyberBytes will create a curriculum for teacher education in 4 key fields and will be made accessible online to teachers across the country. Teachers will complete 3 levels of training across each of the 4 key areas.

Focus on Development
CyberBytes course levels will not be based on the age of the students you teach but rather on your personal mastery of the topic. In today’s world, teachers need to understand general cyber topics in order to be proficient in your personal use of digital technology. Being able to apply those skills in a classroom setting is considered mastery level.
While the greatest focus on teacher cyber skills to date has been on teaching teachers to teach coding, CyberBytes will empower teachers by providing them with the foundation for truly understanding the technology behind the coding for example.
The CyberBytes curriculum and core competencies map to various frameworks and student curriculum. The focus of CyberBytes is on the teachers personal development and not on student training or classroom curriculum.
