Staff of the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) have contributed a chapter on cybersecurity to a new book about how educators coped with change during the emergency school closings of the past year. The book draws on interviews with K-12 educators in the U.S. and internationally, as well as a survey of nearly 1,200 educator leaders who were on the front lines of leading remote emergency learning even as they tended to concerns about food insecurity, professional development, technology access for all children, and the social-emotional well-being of their students, teachers and parents.

Susan Davis and Christina Lewellen authored a chapter on cybersecurity concerns in Like No Other School Year: 2020, COVID-19 and the Growth of Online Learning ($7.95 eBook, $29.95 paperback, both available from Amazonby Pamela Livingston Gaudet. The chapter provides practical guidance for tackling cybersecurity measures in schools, while also addressing increasing concerns about data privacy and threats posed by working or learning from home.

The stories shared by educators in a time of triage teaching detailed the components needed for success. Not only computers were required for students to learn, teachers had to understand a whole new pedagogy for instruction while using new tools.

Readers will discover:

  • Twelve key learnings from the interviews
  • Recommendations for the key learnings
  • Results from a survey of nearly 1,200 teachers by Daniel Cruz and Megan Storey Hallam of Leman Manhattan Preparatory School
  • Questions the school leadership committee should ask for a successful online learning strategy
  • In-depth information from chapters on Social-Emotional Health, Leadership, Relationships, Communication, Online Learning, and Cybersecurity/Privacy

“Technology leaders took the lead on providing the tools and resources teachers and students needed to continue learning online during the pandemic. These tools and resources, along with the data stored by the people who used them, have required ever more careful stewardship by technology leaders to defend against the challenges posed by increasing cyber threats. ATLIS is proud to say that technology leaders rose to meet that challenge.” -- Christina Lewellen, Executive Director, ATLIS

Like No Other School Year: 2020, COVID-19 and the Growth of Online Learning ($7.95 eBook, $29.95 full color paperback, 224 pages, 7 X 10, ISBN: 978-1-7357474-1-5) is available from Amazon.
