CYBERSECURITY CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK
As more high school teachers integrate cybersecurity into their classrooms, the need for a coherent curriculum framework becomes more pressing. A curriculum framework sets the parameters, directions and standards for curriculum policy and practice. It is a means of organizing and managing content (policies, procedures, concepts and so on) in a systematic way. A curriculum framework is important because it enables educators to effectively plan properly sequenced activities so as to provide learning opportunities targeting desired learning outcomes. Curriculum developers and teachers seek to ensure that students develop a base of knowledge, skills, attitudes, beliefs and values that will enable them to function successfully in cybersecurity college programs and careers.
