What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You: Privacy, Safety and Security Issues in the K-12 1:1 Era

Houston ISD has created a Safety, Privacy and Security Rubric (SPSR) in conjunction with HISD’s PowerUp (1:1 initiative) to rate tools frequently used by our students and teachers. The goal is to promote appropriate use of technology (AUT) and to increase awareness of safety, privacy and security concerns among students, teachers and parents. Houston ISD invited Common Sense Media and a select group of school districts to review, test and refine the instrument. The following school districts enthusiastically endorsed and joined in our efforts: New York City Department of Education, Chicago, Metropolitan Nashville, Fairfax County, Clarke County and Denver. The SPS Rubric has been posted as an online instrument on Common Sense’s Graphite.org, and is currently being tested to calibrate and ensure ease of use. Since then, more school districts and representatives from K12 groups have been invited to the Houston ISD and Common Sense SPS Rubric Committee, including Texas districts Judson, Katy, Pasadena and Klein; other large USA districts, such as LA USD and Broward Co (FL), as well as representatives from CoSN, ISTE and the Council of Great City Schools (CGCS). Join us to learn about the rubric’s features and uses.
