Individual Activities

  • Review Ventura County’s Student Data Privacy Checklist and FPF and ConnectSafely’s The Educators Guide to Student Data Privacy.
    1. Evaluate the information communicated. For each document answer the following questions.
      • What was not communicated that should have been?
      • What, if anything, is confusing or not clear?
      • What would you add to the communication?
      • What would you remove from the communication?
    2. Leverage the information in the above documents, as well as any you can find online, and create a tool that you could provide teachers to assist them when considering educational technology apps.
      • You will have the opportunity to share the tool you create with others during the webinar. You will provide and receive feedback enabling refinement of our tools during that time.
