Balancing the potential for supporting educational practice with public privacy

22.11.2021

On 1 December we meet with Stephen Whiffin, Director of Instruction and Chief Information Officer in the Coquitlam School District, Metro Vancouver, Canada.

His “Conditions for 21st Century Learning” systemic planning model led to Coquitlam’s schools gaining an international reputation for digital learning, leading to his recognition as Canadian Educational Technology Leader of the Year (Microsoft Connected Learner Conference, 2017).

As CIO, Stephen has emphasised the importance of effective privacy policy in ensuring the public trust required to enable digital innovation in educational environments. He has provided notable lectures and presentations at international events including the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (Philadelphia, USA); the British Education and Training Technology Exposition (London, UK); Microsoft E2 Educator Exchange (Singapore and Paris); C21 Education CEO Summit (Toronto, Canada); EU Privacy Policy Roundtable (The Hague, Netherlands) and the China Education Exposition (Zhuhai, China).

In this Data Talk, Stephen will discuss rapidly growing educational data sources and the challenges associated with balancing the potential for supporting educational practice with public privacy and transparency concerns.

Add the event to your calendar and join us: 1 December 16:30 - 17:15!
