This year, I had the privilege of collaborating with other professionals in my field: Thelma Almuena, the Principal of Columbia Elementary, George Philip, teacher and technology integrationist at the Stanley Clark School, and Ana Albir, founder and CEO of Drawp Entertainment and creator of Drawp for Schools. We have put together a panel proposal for SXSWedu 2016 conference focusing on student privacy in the digital age. I hope you will support our session and vote for it to be accepted.

Our session summary is:
With ubiquitous classroom technology, students’ privacy is an increasing concern. Federal laws, such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, are difficult to navigate but vital to protecting students’ rights. This panel will focus on demystifying the process, providing key strategies for lawfully implementing technology, and looking to the future of technology and education. Panelists include technology and school administrative leaders (at both public and private schools) as well as a software developer for PK-elementary tools.
- Gain an understanding of current Federal Privacy Laws that apply to schools.
- Understand how to vet and implement technology tools in schools.
- Understand the direction that privacy and educational technology will take in the future.
