Call for regulation on securing children’s data in personalised reading | DigiLitEY
On 16 March 2017 we hosted a meeting with some of the UK’s key players in the children’s app and print publishing industry, international researchers and representatives from Book Trust and National Literacy Trust. There was a strong consensus that there is an ‘urgent need for policy recommendations and regulations concerning children’s personalised (reading) products’.

Confessions of a Privacy Novice: I Gave my Students' Privacy to Google | American Library Association
If asked, I would tell anyone that I value my online privacy, but truth be told, I’ve never pushed my abstract commitment to privacy toward a concrete step to protect my myself — or my students — online. I tend to be too trusting, and I take the path of least resistance, shrugging off privacy concerns with a glib, “I don’t have anything to hide!”

Block and Cut: How the Federal Government is Underfunding Student Support and Academic Enrichment | New America
A fully funded Title IV would require a federal education budget increase (or offsets). Even the Obama Administration only requested $500M for it in FY17. There are many challenges in the Trump Administration FY18 budget request; Title IV SSAEG has structural problems created by Congress. IMHO full funding would do little to fix what ails it.

Why all Class One pupils were never going to get free laptops | The Standard
For nearly four years, the Kenyan Government has been struggling to integrate digital technology into early years of primary schooling. Digital learning, it says, will improve an education system suffering from quality of teaching and inadequate learning resources. But according to UNESCO, as elsewhere in Sub-Saharan Africa, Kenya’s basic education system has many challenges that include poor infrastructure, overcrowding, sharing of core textbooks and low access to basic sanitation.

Ethiopia turns off internet nationwide as students sit exams | The Guardian
It’s the third time in a year that Ethiopia’s digital borders have been slammed shut. In July 2016, the government blocked a significant amount of traffic after university entrance exams were posted online; another block followed in August of that year. The move is a common one across many developing nations: Algeria also blocked access to social media, in June last year, in an attempt to fight cheating in school exams.
