Create or find a classroom resource that teaches students about creating strong passwords, passcodes or passphrases.
To teach students to create strong passwords, the teacher could first show them how to make up a random password: for example using two dice to find random numbers, a spinning wheel for letters of the alphabet, include the name of a colour or an animal into the password (selected randomly in a deck of relevant cards) etc. so each students gets their own password. To make another strong password but easier to remember, students could use a passphrase using a subject, a verb, a surrounding circumstance (which also teaches them about clauses) e.g. Greg jumped over the fence. They could then modify the letters using capitals, adding numerals and special characters or another random word. They could also exchange their phrases and “scramble” them with their friends to create a different one.
