Technology in education has the potential to revolutionize learning. Yet the adoption of new technology requires consumer trust. This is especially true when considering the privacy of students’ data collected by education technologies. Recently, we have witnessed increased activity around student privacy legislation. Over 170 state student privacy bills have been introduced in 2015, the White House announced its student privacy legislative proposal in January, and Congress is currently considering multiple student privacy bills.

Join the Center for Democracy & Technology, members of Congress, advocates, and industry leaders for a briefing* on the paths forward for national student privacy law and policy.
