Judy Nalon shared this news with us on friday. google has been mining k12 student data thanks to a service they can’t ‘turn off.’
we’d like to hear your thoughts! drop us a comment or come by the Playground to chat.
- what about the data giant using k12 student emails for targeted ads? note: google’s edu policy states that student data is not used for advertising (policy available here)…but, what are the implications of their scanning service?
- what rights to data privacy do students have?
- how can we better prepare students (and our preservice teachers) to become aware of these issues of digital storage, free speech, & ownership in the new era of big data?
- google isn’t the only corporation gleaning data from k12 students–testing companies also do it. is there a parallel?
