Webinars for Education Leaders on Data Privacy and Cyber Security
edWeb.netand CoSN have partnered to host an edWebinar series to help superintendents with issues of tech leadership. In the most recent edWebinar, the presenters addressed five critical guidelines for ensuring data privacy in any school system’s use of technology so that superintendents and district leaders can learn how to make student data privacy a district-wide priority. Education leaders are encouraged to watch the recording of the most recent presentation on student data privacy and sign up for the next webinar on cyber security (November 12, 2018) to gain ideas and strategies for driving school and district improvement through technology initiatives.
