Gallagher - Student Data Privacy for the Techie Teacher

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Digital devices and tools have clearly become an important part of the teaching and learning experience of almost every teacher and student nationwide. At the same time, stakeholders are concerned about the privacy of students’ data when they are using these tools. While the student data privacy discussion is tackled in think tanks, policy forums, and legal briefs, it is challenging for educators at the classroom and school building level to stay informed so they can apply those policies well in their schools. Will the decisions made at the federal, state, and local levels impact how they can use technology with their students? Can they still confidently use the edtech products that have helped them and their students? This session will make education data policies and regulations understandable at the classroom level. Based on the ten question checklist in the Educator’s Guide to Student Data Privacy, participants will learn strategies that will help them feel more confident about their own edtech choices and about how to talk with teacher colleagues and even students about what data privacy means. Technology can be a powerful learning tool and it not going away. Let’s empower teachers to understand data privacy so they can confidently navigate this growing element of education.
