Welcome to CyberSmartNV
Educators

Thank you for being an educator. Educators are role models, provide guidance, and inspire students to be their best self. Globally, educators have the greatest impact on society. The vital role of educators is a monumental responsibility, and can often be overwhelming in its profound importance to growing healthy and productive communities.

With the growth of technology in the last twenty years, the need for educators who embrace technology has never been more important. Students at every age are more digitally connected and will turn to their teachers with questions, concerns, and aspirations all related to technology. As such, educators will require information and resources to answer those questions, and to teach their students about the every growing digital world.
