Student privacy and school security are growing concerns in schools that can have consequences from negative media attention to losing parent and student trust. Defining and assessing levels of risk in the school is a crucial part of online security and privacy. Although there is no such thing as zero risk, there are measures we can take to significantly reduce risk. Bill Fitzgerald, Director of the Privacy Evaluation Initiative for Common Sense Media, provided simple ways to assess online privacy and security in “Online Security, Privacy, and Risk: How to Avoid Becoming a Headline.”
Stay off the front page of the paper! In this webinar, Common Sense privacy guru Bill Fitzgerald will explore how to define and assess levels of risk in the classroom and at school. Bill will give you tools and simple checks that you can use to make sure that you are using available technology in a way that does not violate student privacy or school security.
