EdTech Education

EdTech Education: EdTech, short for “education technology,” is the combination of IT tools and educational practices aimed at facilitating and enhancing learning. Recent research concluded that 89% of the EdTech tools assessed engaged in data practices that risked children’s rights. Many parents and school staff are unaware of the potential risks associated with children’s data being collected and stored by EdTech vendors. Without proper training, schools lack the ability to assess which products are safe and which pose a risk to student privacy. We are committed to providing the training and education necessary to ensure parent councils, school board staff, EdTech vendors, and private school administrators understand the privacy implications of EdTech and the concerns around children’s data surveillance. We have Canada’s only qualified EdTech expert on our team. Contact us to discuss how we can engage, educate and empower your group regarding EdTech privacy implications.
