The Student Data Privacy and TrustED Apps initiative provides public schools with expert solutions for the evaluation of online educational resources, including how such resources protect student data.
This initiative benefits local education agencies as follows:
ADE provides local education agencies with an affiliatemembership to 1EdTech Consortium, a global community for supporting innovations and open digital standards for learning.
Access to the TrustED Apps dashboard with an industry-standard rubric for vetting applications for data privacy.
Training provided by 1EdTech in the maximization of data standards to protect student data privacy.
Community support to define processes/procedures for the approval of online resources in their district.
“Created by the 1EdTech community, open standards are the best way to enable product choice, reduce cost, and make informed decisions with reliable data. The TrustEd Apps pledge gives all of us a collective and powerful voice to benefit every student, teacher, institution, and edtech supplier.” (https://www.1edtech.org/)

In this workshop, Arizona LEAs will be trained in the foundations of student data privacy and accessibility and how to utilize a rubric to vet applications. Other criteria for vetting applications will be incorporated into the training including the following: interoperability with existing applications, teacher and student ease of use, and instructional relevance and purpose. Using the TrustEd Apps Management Suite (TAMS) from 1EdTech, the Arizona LEAs will collaborate on the best practices for sharing the use of digital learning tools and resources with other educators in their schools and districts and will learn strategies for providing professional development in digital learning for their colleagues.
