Every day, endless tech products (both consumer and educational) present learning opportunities in K12 classrooms. While many tools are vetted by educators on their content, few are vetted on their technological underpinnings. How can you tell if an app is doing what its makers claim that is doing, or if it is trustworthy enough to maintain student data? I’m on a mission to improve security + privacy in educational technology by :

  • giving educators easy-to-implement information security practices in the classroom that protect student data and build responsible technology habits
  • raising awareness of the lack of privacy + security measures in edtech in the security, hacker, and technology communities.
