If I Hear The Term “Pivot” One More Time…

05/05/2021 @ 14:00 - 15:00 EDT

About the session:

In March of 2020 nearly every school, from Kindergarten to Universities, closed their physical doors and sent students to the other end of a network connection to learn. The shift was fast and furious, in some cases taking place over a couple of days, which left a lot of questions unanswered about the security and privacy of this newly-tenured style of education. Some of those questions have been answered today, and many remain (and many more have arisen)

Our guest this week is Jess Knott, AVP at the Online Learning Consortium. Jess will join us to talk about how security, privacy and compliance fit into the current ed-tech realm, how practitioners can help move these topics forward and areas that remain of concern. We will talk about everything from the security of the tech in use, to the ethics of things like testing technologies and cameras, and the challenges and benefits that having (and not having) tech that potentially harms privacy or security can benefit or hinder the academic experience of students.

Join us for what will be a lively discussion about the ins and outs of security, privacy and compliance in the tech used to teach and learn!
