One of a series of lessons I am making available, this lesson tests the pre-held notions of internet safety children have in the use of anti viruses.
Should you wish to purchase the entire set when it goes on sale, a discount will be offered to those who bought this leson seperately.
Many online courses in cyber safety explain that anti virus will make sure no viruses are picked up by a computer. But is this true?
In this lesson, students learn how to "pack" a virus just like a real intruder would and then test their newly packed virus against 42 industry standard anti viruses.
If you need assistance with locating packers and the virus itself, I am able to give you links to it upon purchase, but you can of course source these yourself if you wish.
Included in the lesson are the background details as to why this lesson has power in the classroom and step by step instructions for re-producing it.
Please note that essential questions listed in the lesson that say "on the slides" refer to the powerpoint show you can download (free) from my products page.
Note: You will need the program invisible secrets 4 to run this lesson. This software is free for a trial and this is all you will need to replicate the lesson.
