Abstract

The Common Sense Privacy Evaluation Initiative has created a tool to evaluate student privacy and security. This session will engage participants in a discussion of the key findings from our 2021 State of Kids Privacy Report that represent the culmination of our research over the past several years and evaluation of over 1,000 education technology-related applications and services. Our overall findings are illustrative of current trends in the edtech industry including widespread lack of transparency and inconsistent privacy and security practices. This roundtable session will include discussions and display of visual representations of key findings from our published 2021 State of Kids Privacy Report with pie-charts and graphs that illustrate better, worse, and unclear privacy and security practices of 100 popular edtech applications and services that were evaluated in the following areas: encryption, effective policy dates, selling data, third-party marketing, traditional advertising, behavioral advertising, ad tracking, third-party tracking, profiling, and the onward transfer of data to third parties. These images will help attendees better understand the current state of privacy and security practices in educational technology in 2021.
