With TimeTown, children learn to tell time by experiencing morning, noon, evening and night. "Hot spots" in the environment -- such as a statue, flag and newspaper office -- can be clicked to show activities that usually occur during a certain time of day. Clicking on the sun causes it to move across the sky, thereby changing the time. Plus, a Grandfather Clock sings and dances to help kids remember hours, half-hours and minutes. In J'e's Garage, video clips describe holidays and seasons. Students test their knowledge about time in Turtle Races, where correct answers move them around the track.

This new normal calls for security resilience--the ability to protect the integrity of every aspect of the system and withstand unpredictable threats or changes, and then emerge stronger. Districts must embrace multi-layered endpoint security solutions and the latest technologies, such as unified platforms and extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities, in order to protect their networks.
