Joint staff training in Tartu, Estonia
The Cyber clever project arranged a short term joint staff training in Tartu, Estonia in early 2022 with 35 participants from Iceland, Estonia, Turkey, Sweden, Austria and Norway. The participants learned to crack passwords, about AI and the future for VET students, current cyber threats and many more cyber related topics. It was business visits to Foxway, Estonian Cyber centre and VET schools in the area.
Godalen arranged a second training in the Cyber Clever project for students mid june 2022. It was one intense week of trainings, company visits and social activities.
Some of the lectures were:
How do the criminals operate?
Lecture by ATEA, Digital ethics, prevention of digital abuse and consequences of them by Grete Kvalheim,
Lecture by Philip Dunford Stavanger Smart City HUB,
Godalen arranged a cyber camp for technology focused 10th graders in early july 2022 where they would follow a mock cyber attack on Godalen where there were inside helpers, and they had to find the clues and solve tasks so they could uncover who was behnd it. The camp was sponsored by Equinor and run by Godalen teachers
Cybercation - Nordic-Baltic Educators’ Forum in Tartu 29. October 2022
Godalen has been invited to present the cyber clever project and its results at NKUL - National conference for usage of ICT in education and learning on the 13th of may 2020 which is hosted by NTNU in Trondheim. Conference webpage: www.nkul.no
The Cyber clever management team met in Turkey on the 24th and 25th of January to look at the last part of the developed course and plan the joint staff training in Estonia. The host was principal Mustafa Demirer and his team at Necip Facil VET school.
Istanbul was hit by an unusual snow storm that made things very challenging for the whole community, but we managed to conduct the meeting with the partners who were able to attend.
Our Turkish partner managed to get a whole page article about the Cyber Clever project in the local newspaper. Cyber attacks have been frequent also in Turkey so the project has drawn considerable interest so far
Transnational meeting in Keflavik, Iceland
The partners of the Cyber Clever project met physically for the first time on the 27th and 28th of September at MSS premises in Keflavik, Iceland. The intention of the meeting was to discuss how we develop the course materials downt to the actual level of the students so teachers can directly transfer what they learn to the students. All developing partners had practical sessions with their ideas and we tested Cipher wheels, Pholybius square, online cyber tests etc. In addition we peer-reviewed the materials already developed and gave feedback on potential improvements.
We als oset dates for future meetings and trainings:
24th + 25th January in Istanbul, Turkey- transnational meeting
4th-7th April 2022 Tartu, Estonia- C1 (training for staff)
Week 24 C2 Stavanger (Cyber week for students)
Vienna 19th + 20th September 2022- transnational meeting

World password day
Thursday 6th of may is the world password day!
Cyber week as Godalen
In primo May 2021 the service and electro department at Godalen arranged Cyber week for the students where focus was on getting to know the basics of cyber security. The students learned about encryption, Password and biometry, coding, internet behaviour by means of lectures and practical exercises. Unfortunately Covid situation put some restrictions on the type of activities we could have, but we had a good walkthrough of most topics.
European Cyber Security Challenge
Czech Republic is proud to host the sixth edition of the European Cyber Security Challenge - the annual European event that brings together young talent from across Europe to have fun and compete in cybersecurity! Top cyber talents from each participating country will meet in Prague to network and collaborate and finally compete against each other. Contestants will be challenged in solving security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and in the process collect points for solving them.
The 2023 challenge will be held in Norway in the "Viking ship” arena in Hamar.
Launch of a new training course
The Cyber Clever project has contributed heavily to the launching of a new in service training course for teachers offered through NTNU in Norway.
The modules, structure and learning outcomes are directly based on the Cyber Clever project’s didactic guidelines and has been possible to finalise thanks to the hard work of Bodil Grødem, teacher at Godalen Vocational College
The Cyber Clever project had a joint project meeting through Teams on the 26th. of February. We focused on finalising the didactic guidelines and discussing the course development. We are on course and are looking forward to meeting in person.
We will be applying for a 6 month extension to ensure the piloting and course can be undertaken successfully.
CISCO joins as partner in Cyber education for teachers
Cisco joins as a partner in the development of the Cybersmart program led by NTNU. Cisco will contribute with their expertise, training materials, tools, and the Cisco Networking Academy (Netacad) education platform. Cybersmart will provide teachers with further education in technology with a focus on networks and cyber security.
The Cisco Networking Academy platform is used annually by over 2.3 million students worldwide. Several colleges and universities in Norway are already using the solution. The goal now is to expand it to also be used especially towards teacher education in vocational subjects, where new learning goals through subject renewal set new requirements for competence in digital infrastructure and cyber security.
CyberSmart - study at NTNU: IK6520 Introduction to digital security for teachers
The CyberSmart project, led by Godalen and project manager Bodil Grødem, has now, in collaboration with NTNU, developed a credit-bearing study in cyber security for teachers based on the EU project Cyber Secure. The study will be two-part (2 * 7.5 credits), and will be part of an experience-based master's.
Godalen was just accepted at the 2021 NKUL conference with Cyber Clever project:
It is a pleasure to announce that NKUL's program committee wants your submitted proposal "How should young people become CyberSmart" in the program for NKUL 2021. NKUL (National Conference on the Use of IKT in Education and Learning) is Norway's largest meeting place for those interested in using IKT in their teaching program. The target group for the conference is teachers, school leaders, teacher educators and participants from the education sector in general. The conference is annual, and takes place in the science and technology building at NTNU in Trondheim. NKUL has an extensive program over three days, many parallel series of sessions, inspiring plenary lectures and a large exhibition.
The 2020 edition of Health at a Glance: Europe focuses on the impact of the COVID‑19 crisis. Chapter 1 provides an initial assessment of the resilience of European health systems to the COVID-19 pandemic and their ability to contain and respond to the worst pandemic in the past century.

Meeting with Compare.se
Bodil had a meeting with Magnus Bården and several people connected to the Swedish Compare cluster in early November 2020 informing about our project and possible future cooperation.
Compare is a cluster which brings together companies, organisations and individuals that share a long-term ambition to develop Värmland into a digital, attractive and cutting - edge region, creating both national and international interest. Their main focus being regional growth and helping companies achieve that competitive edge with digital technology. This requires for us to think beyond tomorrow, and to pursue digital development and innovation together.
Possible book on Cyber Smart for VET
Head of dept Anne Dorthe Ask and some of the teachers had a meeting with Grethe Kvalheim, editor in chief of the Hertervik Publishing company about the possibility to write a book for VET on Cyber Security. The project has highlighted the need for more teaching materials in the field, and a possible book is a great step in the right direction.
Visit to Cyber Range Gjøvik
Bodil Grødem, teacher at the department of Sales, service and security at Godalen went to visit the national Cyber Range in Gjøvik in October 2020. CCIS is set to become a leading academic research and education community for cyber and information security in Europe. Through collaboration and partnerships between academia and the public and private sectors, CCIS will be a high-profile national resource and a catalyst for international cooperation.
