Big Data Lessons in Personalization & Privacy

Big data is personalizing our world. What can education learn from IT, consumer and healthcare sectors to embrace both personalization and privacy in order to best serve students and teachers? Widespread use of electronic health records and virtual access to health providers illustrates effective data shared. This expert panel of leaders are making advances in generating “smart data” and safely storing and sharing it. This panel will discuss how lessons from other sectors can play a vital role.
