Protecting Student Privacy in Media

Protecting student data is a responsibility that all schools take seriously. A photo of a student is considered personally identifiable information (PII) and is subject to just as much care as schools take with all other forms of student data. However, trying to prevent photos from being shared publicly on social media is an impossible task because of how this generation interacts. What if you can provide an environment where media literacy and citizenship is not only preached, but practiced? What if you can regain control over how every photo and video captured throughout the school year from your students, families, and teachers can become a personal story of student achievement and a symbol of school pride? What if this content can be systematically collected to build a living media portfolio of every student's journey for their years at your school? Join the president of Vidigami and the director of IT from John Cooper School in this important discussion around how managing the privacy of your school photos and videos can be your most powerful tool in connecting your school community.
