SafeGov.org - Google admits data mining student emails in its free education apps

SafeGov.org - Google admits data mining student emails in its free education apps | Responsible Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
SafeGov
EdTechSandyK's insight:

"When it introduced a new privacy policy designed to improve its ability to target users with ads based on data mining of their online activities, Google said the policy didn’t apply to students using Google Apps for Education. But recent court filings by Google’s lawyers in a California class action lawsuit against Gmail data mining tell a different story: Google now admits that it does data mine student emails for ad-targeting purposes outside of school, even when ad serving in school is turned off, and its controversial consumer privacy policy does apply to Google Apps for Education."

EdTechSandyK's insight:

Great list! Sometimes, though, the cell phone can help with homework, especially if it's a smart phone. I would require homework to be done in a public place, though, especially for Tweens and young Teens, so use can be casually monitored.
