The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced millions of children to forego their schools in exchange for hours each day in Zoom or Teams classrooms.
The shift also forced educators to work many extra hours to ensure the quality of online education is just as good as learning in person. This move to online learning is one of the chief technological benefits in the “new normal” that Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang discussed in his keynote address at Lenovo’s annual Tech World event.
Unfortunately, teachers and students aren’t the only ones spending time accessing online school sites. Hackers and cybercriminals see all those online schools and students as another target for mischief – and for stealing personal information.
