Data Security In Our Schools — Feb. 11 Workshop For Educators Explores Issues of Privacy, Techology
Educators and administrators are invited to attend the Kane County Regional Office of Education‘s Student Data & Security workshop from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, at the Mill Creek Golf Club in Geneva.
The privacy and security of student data, systems and devices are issues that are beginning to have very real impacts on the use of technology in schools.
As technology use becomes increasingly essential for teaching, learning, communications and assessment, service interruptions that may have been tolerable just a few years ago can have a significant negative impact on education and are no longer acceptable.
Consultant and presenter on student data and security, Bob Moore, has enjoyed a career of 26 years in education technology. His work has included more than two decades as a chief information officer in K12 schools and several years as a lead strategist for a multi-billion-dollar global ed-tech business. In 2012 Moore founded RJM Strategies LLC and works with schools and ed-tech business clients as a strategist, adviser and subject-matter expert. He is also the project director for CoSN’s Protecting Privacy in Connected Learning leadership initiative.
Participants in the workshop will learn and discuss the various types of data privacy and security issues that schools face, as well as strategies for addressing them.
Resources that can help school system technology leaders address privacy and security issues will be presented. These will include, but not be limited to CoSN’s Protecting Privacy in Connected Learning toolkit. The workshop will be interactive with table discussions and exercises to ensure peer-to-peer learning.
