Student and Child Data Privacy
To keep children and their families safe from COVID-19, schools closed their doors, emptied their classrooms, and connected with students online. UNESCO reports that nationwide closures impact over 91% of the world’s student population. In the United States alone, over 50 million students are quarantined at home. How can parents and teachers support each other while also navigating the competing demands of working from home in the same place and often with the same devices with their children? What can be done to improve student outcomes and promote positive relationships at home? This IEEE Tech Talk showcases what you can do to support safe, healthy, and effective online interactions.
