Looking back at 2020's education cyberattacks

Cyberattacks are on the rise everywhere, but educational institutions are especially vulnerable, evidenced both anecdotally by high-profile incidents and by research revealing rising frequency and financial impact of attacks. In this feature, EdScoop takes a quick look back at some of the most devastating cyberattacks against education so far this year, from an HVAC attack against a Michigan school district to a $1.1 million ransomware payout by the University of California, San Francisco. Colin Wood is your guide.

Studying by radio wave

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster announced this week the state will begin using its public broadcasting system’s wireless signal to help close the digital divide. A $1.3 million investment in datacasting technology will allow students without internet to access digital learning materials using just a radio tuner and a TV antenna attached to their computers. “We’re going to do everything we can to make sure students get a first-class education,” McMaster said. Colin has the details.


A lab for humanity's future

Arizona State University announced this week it will open a new laboratory space to advance research on environmental sustainability and keeping the planet habitable for future generations. The Global Futures Laboratory, which is slated to open December 2021, is to house ASU’s new College of Global Futures and serve as a national hub for researchers to help solve global problems like climate change, food and water security, and sustainable energy. “We have decided it’s in the collective interest of humankind to build something that’s on the scale of a national laboratory in the United States, but not devoted to weapons and other defensive strategies — devoted to creative strategies and positive global futures,” ASU President Michael Crow said. Betsy Foresman has more.
