I was particularly taken by the piece about erasing kids’ data. In particular, I was intrigued by what data is deleted.
While not all student data is deleted that week, the district works to clean much of students’ digital slates over the summer, including data collected by Google and by GoGuardian, which tracks students’ web searches, according to Peter Cevenini, the district’s chief technology officer.
The district demands more than a vague assurance from tech companies that the data has been erased: “They send us a certification that officially confirms legally that the information has been deleted from their servers,” Cevenini said.
I would assume that students would still have access and ownership over their content and that it is the periphery that is stripped out? Imagine if instead of simply deleting, students were actually given insight into the data that is both captured and deleted?
Hope all is well,
