21st Century Skills
CCNA Security integrates practical skills into the technical curri culum to create a learning experience for success in future educational, entrepreneurial, and occupational endeavors.
Innovative formative and summative assessments are integrated into the CCNA Security curriculum and supported by an advanced online delivery system. Immediate, rich feedback supports instructor and student evaluation of acquired knowledge and skills. Assessments can be as simple as a multiple choice question or as complex as troubleshooting a simulated network .
Packet Tracer is a powerful network simulation program developed by Networking Academy that allows students to experiment with network behavior and ask “what if” questions. As an integral part of the CCNA Security curriculum, Packet Tracer provides simulation, visualization, authoring, assessment, and collaboration capabilities and makes teaching and learning complex security technology concepts easier.
Various types of hands-on labs provide practical experience, including procedural and troubleshooting labs, skills integration challenges, and model building. The curriculum also includes Packet Tracer-based skills integration challenges that build throughout the course and lead to an “exam-like” culminating activity in the last chapter.
