In teacher education programs, preservice teachers learn about strategies to appropriately integrate computer-related and Internet-capable technologies into instructional settings to improve student learning. Many presume that preservice teachers have the knowledge to competently model and teach issues of safety when working with these devices as well. This study investigated the current knowledge and understandings preservice teachers have about cyberethics, cybersafety, and cybersecurity (C3) topics and their beliefs about their ability to teach them. The researchers conducted a survey with 318 preservice teachers asking them to rate their ability to model or teach 75 C3 topics. The results indicated that the respondents were not prepared to model or teach C3 topics. (Contains 2 tables.)
