Unit 4 Task


Option 2: Create or find a classroom resource that teaches students about creating strong passwords, passcodes or passphrases.

Have a discussion time about what students know about passwords, codes or phrases. What they are for? What they do? What they protect? How to make one? What information should not be in a password? How often to change etc.

After discussion, use the examples of passwords being like toothbrush or underpants. They are personal, should not be shared and should be changed regularly.

Use some examples of passwords and how they can be added to or rearranged to become stronger passwords.

Then as a class they could make a display of important things to remember about passwords – what they should include, what they shouldn’t include, why they are important and remembering that they are like toothbrushes/underpants – don’t share them, keep protected and choose a good one.

There are lots of resources for helping students create passwords and how to make them secure. This video is an example : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LxdtaSvQ3I
