This week we have Greg Cox (@tusz11) a trainer with the Utah State Board of Education in the Student Data Privacy department leading the discussion on Data Privacy! This is a VERY important topic for educators to start thinking about and should be a great chat so please come prepared to share your thoughts on keeping data secure while learning from the rest of the #UTedChat crew. If you haven’t already followed Greg via Twitter (@tusz11) you should probably do so because it will help you to better follow the chat.
As always, please be sure to include #UTedChat in your responses so everyone participating can see your thoughts and ideas.
Q1: How many different apps or websites do you and your students use each year? What value does it add to your teaching and/or their learning?
Q2: What are some of the consequences, good or bad, you must make in order to use more technology products and software in the classroom?
Q4: What is your school or district doing in terms of training to inform faculty about protecting and securing student data?
Q5: What security practices do you and/or your school have in place in order to keep student personally identifiable information (PII) secure?
Q6: Any funny/embarrassing/scary personal stories about being hacked or scammed that you want to share?
