New Resource: Privacy, Security and Digital Citizenship
Now that technology is playing a larger role than ever before in teaching and learning, the COVID-19 Education Coalition has curated a list of resources on keeping technology systems safe, protecting student data, and promoting healthy digital decision-making in the newly released A Learning System for Privacy, Security and Digital Citizenship Infrastructure.
As a member of the COVID-19 Education Coalition, AACTE invites members to access this informational resource. It was created to do the following: understand the relationship between privacy and security as well as have models of effective practices in safeguarding student data; understand the roles, responsibilities, and rights of students in virtual learning environments; and understand the numerous stakeholders playing a role in student “data stewardship” and “digital citizenship” (i.e., teachers, administrators, parents, vendors, and the students themselves) and how their role is critical for both short- and long-term success.
The following members comprise the Privacy, Security, and Digital Citizenship working that produced the document:
- Co-lead: Larry Fruth, Access 4 Learning and Student Data Privacy Consortium
- Co-lead: Lawrence Paska, National Council for the Social Studies
- Anisha Reddy, Future of Privacy Forum
