Protecting Student Privacy in the Digital World
With ubiquitous classroom technology, students’ privacy is an increasing concern. Federal laws, such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, are difficult to navigate but vital to protecting students’ rights.

Panelists include technology and school administrative leaders (at both public and private schools) as well as a software developer for PK-elementary tools.
