As part of its ongoing Student Privacy Initiative, led by Executive Director Urs Gasser, the Berkman Center is excited to offer a number of related publications that synthesize diverse conversations, distill next steps and key issues, and provide initial substantive resources for technologists and school officials alike:
You may also be interested in our previously published reports and guides, including an initial report, Student Privacy in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem: State of Play & Potential Paths Forward, and a legal analysis of COPPA and FERPA, Privacy and Children's Data: An Overview of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
We look forward to continuing to develop additional materials in the months to come, with an eye to conducting legal analysis and producing resources for the March 2014 CoSN Annual Conference (after which an updated toolkit with materials targeted at district-level stakeholders will be made publicly available), while also engaging in ongoing collaboration, conversation, and research across both the law and policy and norms, values, attitudes, and practices clusters that have emerged from our initial gatherings.
Please contact Student Privacy Initiative Project Manager Alicia Solow-Niederman at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or media inquiries.
About the Student Privacy Initiative
The Berkman Center for Internet & Society's Student Privacy Initiative, led by Executive Director Urs Gasser, explores the opportunities and challenges that may arise as educational institutions consider adopting cloud computing technologies. In its work across three overlapping clusters – Privacy Expectations & Attitudes, School Practices & Policies, and Law & Policy – this initiative aims to engage diverse stakeholder groups from government, educational institutions, academia, and business, among others, develop shared good practices that promote positive educational outcomes, harness technological and pedagogical innovations, and protect critical values.
