The Need for Privacy and Technology in our Schools: Rethinking Privacy in Education

The Need for Privacy and Technology in our Schools: Rethinking Privacy in Education

Last Thursday, Jules Polonetsky participated in a Congressional E-Learning Caucus Briefing on “Data Privacy in Education” on Capitol Hill. Moderating the discussion was Intel’s David Hoffman, who today summarized his thoughts on the event:

The demise of inBloom and many of the findings of the Pew research point to a need for continued dialogue on the issue of education privacy. . . . While transparency and parent engagement are critical, we need to supplement them with a better understanding of how organizations should use student data. We ask all of you to join us in that effort, and help us describe what ‘the appropriate and accountable’ use of data means in education.

His complete thoughts are available at Policy@Intel.
