The Education Review recently published an article by Colin Anson from Pixevety (now a VINE Gold Sponsor) where he refers to Deloitte Australian Privacy Index that found the education sector as one of the weakest on privacy. The article talks about how the use of photos, videos and digital recordings fit into our duty of care, the consent process as well as Data Breach.
Many schools have given great consideration to the security and privacy of the data and platforms, particularly in light of the legislative changes brought around by the data breach legislation. However, as the article suggests it may be timely to consider a review of your consent process to ensure you avoid 'coercive consent' (ie where a child cannot participate if they do not have consent) or 'bundled consent' (a vague opt out that covers everything).
