The Promise and Pitfalls of Ed Tech

How is ed tech being used in our schools? Is my child's private data secure? What's the role of tech in a high-quality education?

If you'd like more info about protecting student privacy, we highly recommend the resources from the Parent Coalition for Student Privacy, especially their parent toolkit, available in English and Spanish, that Rachael mentioned in her talk.  And Parents Across America is a great place to look for research on ed tech and its implications.
