Cyberattacks against K-12 schools are a serious and ever changing threat—and they’re on the rise.

The U.S. Department of Education's Digital Equity Education Roundtables (DEER) initiative seeks to close the digital divide and enable all learners in PK-12, higher education, and adult education to unlock technology-enabled opportunities and fully participate in a digital society. In this session, the Office of Educational Technology (OET) will share key takeaways from the DEER Initiative and how these lessons may help leaders build effective digital equity plans under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). OET will also discuss role of different sectors in the digital equity ecosystem, including local leaders, in supporting digital inclusion efforts for learners, families/caregivers, and communities.
Usage data is critical to understanding whether equitable digital learning occurs in your district for all students. Analytics can illuminate the digital engagement of students and provide insight on everything from equitable access, to return on investments and professional development needs. Combining analytics with best practices to evaluate learning applications will help you streamline and improve the quality of your EdTech ecosystem. In this webinar, ClassLink will: share an analysis of the top applications used in our client districts and what differences exist in the types of apps used in schools based on characteristics, highlight ClassLink Analytics' reports that help districts analyze which applications students use and the differences in applications across school buildings and groups, and share best practices for selecting and evaluating applications.
Ransomware attacks on district data are on the rise, making data security a critical concern. ClassLink’s privacy and security features don’t just keep your data safe—they also help you establish transparency and build trust around data security. Join us to learn how ClassLink helps protect your data and also provides a public-facing inventory of digital resources used in your district so everyone can understand your data security efforts.
Equity and access are complicated problems that require an ecosystem of supports. Learn how ClassLink fits into that ecosystem with analytics and a unique approach to rostering to help you measure, understand, and support equitable access to digital learning resources and opportunities.
Traditional security awareness in schools is becoming less effective. Many are still resistant to implementing MFA and other security controls into their daily habits. The problem is that schools need to shift from making people aware to demonstrating why they should care? Join cybersecurity expert Ryan Cloutier as he shares how to build a culture of care where staff transition from understanding cybersecurity to becoming active defenders of safety and security.
