Facebook cyber security game will teach you a lesson
The Arlington-based Air Force Association has a recruitment problem. Young people aren't particularly interested in cyber security — in fact, many are interested in exactly the opposite — and yet, there's a high demand for cyber security professionals. The obvious solution, then, was to create some kind of Facebook game. Of course.
The game is called CyberVille — get it? — and the goal is to defend a virtual town, including its banks, restaurants, and emergency services, from possible cyber attacks. Not only is the game attempting to generate interest in the profession, but it's also an "unabashed attempt" to attract high school students to the AFA's annual CyberPatriot competition, Ballston Patch reports.
The message here is that education can always be turned into something that teaches kids nothing, but helps them waste more time.
