    Privacy, Anonymity, and Instruction

    in Education

    Privacy today looks very different than it did 20 years ago… and the drive toward more personalized instruction from students, parents, and educators challenges privacy even further. Is it possible to build barriers to thwart data thieves and support general anonymity while providing educators with access to assessment and more nuanced qualitative information?  The ability to balancing these demands is essential if we are to realize the benefits that personalized learning can offer.

    Communities are trying to address the challenge of providing the infrastructure to support quality education, while still adhering to socially acceptable policies around data security and anonymity. With instruction, it’s not simply about assessment but providing substantial feedback that allows students to become masters of their own learning. In order to be effective, educators and educational environments need to know who the learner is, balance the trade offs between complete anonymity and provide access to information that informs instruction.

    Join Michael Jay and guests as they take a bite out of the hard questions like:

    How is technology outside of education progressing and how can we leverage it to improve our systems?
    How can we educate decision makers about the trade offs around privacy/anonymity and also set expectations with parents and the larger community?

    Guests at the Table:

    Tim Discipio, Founder, ePals
    Jeff Patterson, Founder and CEO, Gaggle, Inc.
    Francesca Venning, Learning Technology Consultant, Venning and Associates

    Instruction - Warning and Correction

    in Education

    When we give instructions to a student we make two very important assumptions that may or may not be true. We assume that they heard us, and that they understood us. Dealing with student behavior requires as much instruction as does the academic curriculum.
