The Educator's Guide to Student Data Privacy
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This guide is meant to help teachers utilize technology in the classroom while protecting their students’ privacy.

Technology tools and apps are making it possible for educators and students to collaborate, create, and share ideas more easily than ever. When schools use technology, students’ data—including some personal information—is collected both by educators and often the companies that provide apps and online services. Educators use some of this data to inform their instructional practice and get to know their students better. It is just as essential for educators to protect their students as it is to help them learn.
