Abstract

New report published today by the Digital Futures Commission uncovers how digital classrooms – including Google Classroom and ClassDojo – are failing to comply with data protection regulation and leaving school children vulnerable to commercial exploitation as a consequence. These new findings come as the Danish government has banned schools from using Chromebooks and Google Workspace for Education in their Helsingør Municipality. The report authors call for immediate action from the UK Government, working with regulators, EdTech companies and civil society, to stop data processing that gambles with children’s privacy, safety and future prospects.
