Dan Tynan, Yahoo's Tech Columnist, recommends the following checklist for parents:
  • Do your own research
  • Ask teachers about websites used in class

  • 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
