EdTech Loop Ep. 94 - The Light Side of Data

Last week we discussed COPPA and the thousands of data points children create just by living and using our personal devices. Students also create data points at school which we hope to use to support teachers in helping those students achieve at their very best. It comes in many forms. You have SAT data, mandated state reporting data, but you also have a kindergarten student identifying colors, that's data, too. It's everywhere. TechTool of the Week: Copyrighteous Podcast Full...


EdTechLoop Ep. 93 COPPA and Data Privacy

That it was important for websites that are targeted towards kids to collect parental consent before they collect, use, or disclose any of the child's information and data.

BiblioTech Ep. 8: Middle School LMC

We know the elementary school media center is a safe, magical place for many kiddos to explore "Mirrors and Windows."

EdTech Loop Best Of - Digital Parenting

The school year is about to begin and the EdTech Loop crew is about ready to get back into the studio.
