Your Role in the Privacy, Security, and Innovation Discussion with Robert Dillon
More than Cool: FETC's Discussions on EdTech with Leading Educators
Fear should not be the driving force behind EdTech Policy. Decision making around privacy and security is too often fear-based, “if you don’t do this, something bad is going to happen”. This can stifle the creativity and innovation teachers need in their classrooms. Teachers, administrators, and policy makers all need a place at the table, so that schools can continue to keep students engaged and collaborating. Let's discuss these issues from the standpoint of safely facilitating learning, how can we safely use technology to prepare students for the rest of their lives?
This session is for both teachers and administrators, and will cover
- Policies, where do we use rules and where wisdom
- Everyday routines you bake into the system,
- Systems that protect like firewalls and antivirus, and
- Responses, how do you build a culture where things are responded to the right way.
