App Approval

Bound By Law

As educators, we are bound by two laws, Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA). These laws apply to online sites, apps, and extensions used in the classroom. Example: Discovery Education Plus (site), WeVideo (app), Google Hangout (extension)... Here's a brief video from iKeepSafe that explains, in layman's terms, why online privacy is so critical.

The Approval Process

Apps submitted are run through the Education Framework matrix and either approved or denied based on their compliance with Federal law, as indicated by their privacy score.T
