Growing concerns about student data privacy can create hurdles for K12 educators working to expand access to edtech and digital innovations. EduPaths and iKeepSafe have partnered to create four courses centered around data privacy in education. These courses provide educators at all levels – teachers, administration, and support staff – with the necessary information to understand their role in keeping student data safe in an increasingly online learning environment.
These FREE online courses include all lessons, videos, quizzes, and supplemental resources needed to gain a full understanding of data privacy in education. After each course, a certificate of completion is generated for professional development purposes. All courses are housed on EduPaths, a Canvas-based platform.
