Coming to Terms ... Responsible use by Educators

I have noticed some conversation and debate lately about Terms of Service of websites on the various education networks I inhabit.

Finally, we may all be getting onto the same page in this regard. This is a welcome relief to me.

Reading the relevant SMALL PRINT for one, understanding for two and then respecting for three is our responsibility.

The Terms and Privacy Statements on websites are a must-read for the 21st century educator.

It is vital to be aware of just how much Personally Identifiable Information (PII) we might be asking (directing) our students of ALL ages to handover to a business. This business might be in the USA, India, Romania, Japan --- anywhere!

Let the learning journey begin!
