Does FERPA apply to social media for learning?
Recently, Georgia Tech invoked the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which led to deletion of all student history and participation from the school’s “Swikis,” the wikis that students use for their coursework. For our next #smedu Twitter chat, we will consider the following questions:
- What is FERPA?
- What are the implications of Georgia Tech's action for the use of social media in learning?
- Do you agree or disagree with Georgia Tech's action?
- How will this development affect your use of social media for learning?
Join us on Wednesday, November 30 at 12 noon EST and at 9 pm EST for this important discussion!
