The Educator's Notebook

A weekly collection of education-related news from around the web.

Hackers Are Leveraging A.I. To Enhance Phishing Attacks

“Microsoft is already seeing cyber criminals and government hackers “using AI to refine the language that they use in their phishing attacks … and make them somewhat harder to detect,” Tom Burt, the company’s corporate vice president of customer security and trust, told reporters during a recent briefing.”


Every week I send out articles I encounter from around the web. Subject matter ranges from hard knowledge about teaching to research about creativity and cognitive science to stories from other industries that, by analogy, inform what we do as educators. This breadth helps us see our work in new ways.

Readers include teachers, school leaders, university overseers, conference organizers, think tank workers, startup founders, nonprofit leaders, and people who are simply interested in what’s happening in education. They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
