Privacy

BC Privacy Law is a fact. FIPPA is not something that we as educators can choose to comply with. Julie Hengstler, from VIU, in 2013 wrote a rather detailed Primer on the subject of BC Teachers posting student information on line. I strongly encourage any teacher looking at engaging their students with  online assignments to read her thoughts on the subject: Primer on Posting Minor Students Final.pdf

Below you will find some pre-made templates for using internet resources in your classroom. Please ensure that you read through the whole document an dadd any additonal information that may be required (i.e. what is your educational rationale for using the resources online).

For your further reading please you may choose to view the Slide deck prepared by Bradley Weldon a privacy analyst from the Office of the Privacy Commisioner. In it he discusses the issues at hand when working with personal information on the web with regards to BC's privacy laws: BC-Privacy-Laws-Bradley-Weldon.pdf

If you work with Elementary aged students check out the following two resources that provide coloring pages and activies for young kids, as well as a short graphic novel regarding privacy. You can find more information for discussing Privacy with students at www.youthprivacy.ca
