EdTech Vendors in Canadian Schools
The Importance of Proper Assessmentee
Our Commitment to Privacy
Education has taken a leap towards technology-enhanced learning environments. Educational Technologies (EdTech) are now integral to the learning process in Canadian schools. While they offer unprecedented opportunities for enriched education, they also raise important questions about student data privacy. In this context, understanding the critical aspects of data collection and sharing by these EdTech platforms is essential.
How do you know if the platform is trustworthy?
Is It Trustworthy?
Understanding the trustworthiness of a platform involves evaluating the practices around data collection, storage, and sharing. With school boards increasingly integrating EdTech into their curriculum, it’s critical to ensure that these platforms handle student data with utmost integrity. Ensuring trust involves not only a comprehensive understanding of privacy policies but also proactive steps to mitigate potential risks.
