Creating a Healthy Digital Environment for 21st Century Learners

Aug 15, 2019 8:41:59 PM

When discussing cyber risk and digital security, schools may lack the expertise needed to build the essential policies, structures and systems to create a learning environment that is securely technology-enabled. 

In a world where we struggle to keep up with the agility of technology change, teachers and students face different expectation and experience with the use of technology in the classroom. When trying to manage cyber risk, many schools are reactive rather than proactive in their response. Classroom teachers are often unsure of digital policies, protocols and procedures to follow, while school leadership can struggle with the confusing landscape of digital privacy and cyber security regulations in schools. 

This doesn't mean we should be saying no to innovation and technology-rich learning, but rather, balancing technology and learning goals with privacy a cyber security responsibilities. 

In this white paper, Melanie Gillies, former primary school teacher and now Education Solutions Consultant at RTG, discusses the changes to the federal Privacy Act and the implications for schools when mitigating cyber risk across their digital network.
