Description

The Federal Trade Commission today announced the final agenda for the Ed Tech Workshop on December 1, co-hosted with the Department of Education and focused on privacy issues related to education technology.

The workshop will examine how the Federal Trade Commissions Rule implementing the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) applies to schools and intersects with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), administered by the Department of Education.

Tom Pahl, the FTCs Acting Director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection, will give opening remarks, and Kathleen Styles, Chief Privacy Officer at the Department of Education, will deliver closing remarks at the event. The workshop also will feature a discussion with school officials and sessions on current laws related to education technology, on issues and challenges related to protecting student privacy, and next steps.

The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. ET at the Constitution Center, 400 7th St., SW, Washington, DC. It will be webcast live on the FTCs website. Additional information about the workshop can be found on the event page.
