New COPPA FAQs can help schools make the grade

In a lot of schools, kids are more likely to be looking at screens than at blackboards.  One advantage:  fewer annoying chalk squeaks.  Of course, the benefits of the connected classroom go far beyond that.  But educators, administrators, and parents have been asking an important question:  How do the protections of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the accompanying FTC rule apply in the school setting?

FTC staff has responded by updating Complying with COPPA: Frequently Asked Questions to address some of the issues that arise when COPPA goes to school.  The new FAQs cover key compliance topics and offer guidance on best practices.  If you have a website or app covered by COPPA, represent clients in the educational arena, or are active in your local schools, you’ll want to read the latest about COPPA and schools.

Kids should have their own computer and should be free internet only in school grounds, because kids might want to look at things while they finish things and most things are blocked at school on the computers so it's a big difference between "block site and available internet that isn't block sure!
