Technology and data are transforming how students learn in classrooms today – but with these rapidly evolving technologies come questions and challenges of how to best use technology and ensure that student data remain secure.
The Technology, Privacy, and the Future of Education symposium, hosted by the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU Steinhardt, brings together educational specialists, journalists, and academics to open a dialogue around the pedagogical, legal, and ethical repercussions of the use of new technologies in educational environments.
The symposium will take place on Friday, March 4 from 2-6 p.m. at 239 Greene Street, Floor 8.
The event consists of two panel discussions:
The Changing Educational Environment
Implications of Data-driven Education
The symposium, which is free and open to the public, is part of a series of conversations in celebration of NYU Steinhardt’s 125th anniversary. Attendees must register through the event’s website; space is limited.
The event is made possible by a gift from Microsoft. Join the conversation with @mccNYU and @nyusteinhardt at #edtechprivacy.
