Teachers

School admin just sent email telling us not to use Zoom as they were selling info to 3rd parties. Just spent tons of time learning how to use it and ready to video chat with my students next week.

Our district said zoom is not an option for us and to stay away from it even for staff online interactions. They don’t meet COPPA guidelines for keeping children safe. We are to use google hangouts for our staff meetings and can do a google hangout with a student but they want us to be extra careful and invite a para or another adult to the conversation, make sure we are not meeting from a bedroom, and to screen record the meeting to cover ourselves legally from any accusations. I’m going to stay away from video chats with students based on these reasons...

I have not done F-2-F with my students. If they were to request it, I would use Conference in Canvas. You can do 10 students at a time unless your district pays for more at a time.

Yeah, I would stay away from zoom. But, Google Meet is crazy easy to use and doesn't require you to download anything! You can record your meetings, mute students, share or present documents,PowerPoints, videos, etc., It works very well.

Yeah, two days ago, it was Zoom this and Zoom that. Then, the news broke about the porn being sent to minors. 🤦🏼‍♀️

We were told not to use Zoom either with students. Looks like they are not FERPA compliant yet.

That may be why our Zoom Faculty Meeting on Tuesday has been postponed.

Zoom just sent out an announcement: Don know if you can see it. But those still using it might want to check it out. Apparently, my district will be using it.

We were told by NJEA not to use Zoom because of potential liabilities. However, most teachers are ignoring the advice

My district was doing online trainings for it and then the issues popped up. 😬 So far, we are not required to use a F-2-F tool. I’ll stay within the Canvas platform if I need to communicate that way. 👍🏻

I think our district is more concerned about the 3rd party data collection. Yes, you can opt out, but are all those signing up opting out? I didn't see that I could opt out when I got the app on my phone. I did see it when I signed up on my computer. I uninstalled the app on my phone-it was a different email address from my school email at least.

Looking for recommendations for password management applications. Ease of use, ability to capture passwords on both work and personal laptops and sync to mobile app, automatic capture during logins and low cost would be a plus.
