TLI SPECIAL EVENT - NYSCATE Creating a Culture of Privacy in the Age of EdLaw 2d (6 session series)
Since 2013, over 130 new student privacy laws have passed in 41 states, with more bills and regulations being rolled out each year that include many new requirements for educators and administrators to implement. Some state laws include the threat of jail or large fines when school staff even unintentionally violate student privacy.
This massive shift in the legal landscape, including the introduction of New York’s Education Law 2-d and Part 121 regulations, makes it hard for schools and districts to keep up. This isn’t only a legal problem. As technology changes and the amount of information schools collect and maintain increases, ensuring that new educators and administrators come into their schools with the skills needed to adequately protect student privacy in their day-to-day work is extremely challenging. Districts, edtech service providers, and other stakeholders still have many unanswered questions around student privacy rules. We will cover the history of student privacy laws and regulations, requirements for schools and companies.
Participants will learn the essentials for creating a culture of privacy, review the policies, training and communications around privacy that already exist in your learning environment, and plan next steps to educate all stakeholders on their role in protecting student privacy. This is part of a program initiated by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), a Washington, DC-based think tank that seeks to advance responsible data practices. The forum is led by Internet privacy experts and includes an advisory board comprised of leading figures from industry, academia, law, and advocacy groups. For more information, visit www.fpf.org. This Future of Privacy Forum initiative aims to multiply on-the-ground student privacy support in the rapidly-evolving regulatory landscape
1. Knowledge: Expand and deepen your privacy and security knowledge.
2. Network: Establish ongoing relationships with a close cohort of privacy invested professionals.
3. Training: Acquire resources and information to support the development of a culture of privacy

KEYNOTE Dr. Devorah Heitner
Devorah Heitner founded Raising Digital Natives for parents and educators seeking advice on how to help children thrive in a digital world. She has positioned herself to help take the fear out of this emotionally-charged topic and help districts and community members guide kids towards empathy, kindness, and integrity. Getting this right sets kids up for a lifetime of success in a world where they are likely to find a job, meet their spouse, and build their reputations in interactive, digital communities. Raising Digital Natives is a place for parents and educators to get practical, timely, and non-judgmental advice to set our kids up for success in a digital world, and in life.
