Tom Murray, state and district digital learning director at the Alliance for Excellent Education, appeared on American Ed TV during the ISTE 2014 conference, speaking with Core of Education’s Dr. Rod Berger about his testimony at a joint congressional hearing on student data and privacy and the important role the “Project 24” initiative plays in education technology.
Murray said Project 24 is helping districts address the key learning concepts like academic supports, budget and resources, curriculum and instruction, and technology and infrastructure as schools implement more digital learning and digital learning devices that are often overlooked.
“We supply tools and resources and a systemic framework to help school districts around the nation say, ‘Let’s do this right. Let’s stop spending before we know what we need to do,'” said Murray.
On the topic of student privacy and data, Murray said collecting data should come back to the ultimate goal of personalized learning for students and above all should be done in a safe and secure way, one that does not include “over-collecting data.”
