Student Privacy: What Parents Need to Know about the Collection of Student Data
We live in an age when the collection and retention of information is as easy as accessing your cell phone. We often take this for granted, but experience with data leaks has shown us that we do need to pay a lot more attention to the type of information being collected, and what is being done with this information. This workshop explores what data is being collected by schools, the issues associated with MyEducation BC, and the concerns that parents have about the security of their children’s data. The session will give parents the opportunity to voice their concerns about data and education, particularly the role data may or may not play in personalizing education for their child.
