This paper discusses the Teaching Alaskans…Sharing Knowledge (TASK) Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, which is funded by the NSF GK-12 Fellowship program. The focus is on how the technology fellows selected by the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) bring technological advances to the schools in which they are placed. The UAF Fellows work closely with the Advanced Systems Security Education, Research and Training (ASSERT) Lab housed within the UAF Computer Science Department, to increase the awareness of computer security issues that affect K-12 teachers and students every day. Initial issues presented included email security, password safety, cyberethics, websites, chatting and instant messaging, and phishing. These topics were selected based on a workshop presented at the 2004 SITE Conference entitled, “What Every Teacher Should Know About Computer Security (Nance, 2004).
