How to Protect Your Kids' Privacy at School

SUREN on August 28, 2014

As schools are increasingly going digital, parents should be asking some important questions about what apps their kids are using at school, what data is being collected, and how the information collected is being used. If the whole issue of privacy is new and the phrase 'personally identifiable information' doesn't mean anything to you, it is time to get started and educate yourself!

Dan Tynan, Yahoo's Tech Columnist, recommends the following checklist for parents:
  • Do your own research
  • Ask teachers about websites used in class
  • Ask administrators about the school's use of data
  • Monitor your school's web and social media sites
  • Read every educational app's privacy policy
  • Minimize your data entry
  • Opt-out early and often
  • Make your voice heard
