On June 18, 2019 Future Ready Schools® held a webinar to developments in technology. Few things in education change as quickly as the technology that supports it. As districts continue to move toward the effective use of technology in the classroom, school leaders grapple with economies of scale; as well as how to maximize use of the cloud, data governance, and instructional opportunities, while minimizing risk.

In this webinar, Vince Scheivert, Rachel Johnson, and Linnette Attai discussed how school districts have used data and the cloud to innovate and optimize learning, while also providing data privacy for all. They also addressed:

  • How districts are using data visualization and predictive analytics to support learning;
  • How to implement next-generation safety and security tools to ensure a sustainable and robust system; and
  • Best practices for protecting student data privacy in the cloud.
