Presentation: Building Consensus on Privacy and Security

Topics:   Privacy Program

Privacy and Security can be difficult to discuss, yet building consensus within a school can be critical.

Bill Fitzgerald | April 22, 2016

I had the pleasure of presenting at ATLIS on April 19, 2016, in Atlanta. The conversation covered facets of privacy and how to evaluate the different attitudes toward privacy and security in schools.

One element of the conversation that we sped over involved some simple browser-based tools that highlight third-party trackers. The example I used included two news sites (Huffington Post and the New York Times), but the process works just as well with educational technology apps: Enable Lightbeam, log in to an edtech site, and see what loads.
