However, once in the classroom issues of cyberethics, cybersafety, and cybersecurity (C3) are sure to confront these novice teachers.

An online focus group study was conducted with 196 preservice teachers who were asked about the concerns they would have if they were asked model or teach C3 topics. The results indicated that the respondents had concerns about their preparedness to model or teach C3 topics and the reaction of administrators and parents should they teach the emotionally charged content.
