most effective education blog 1

by Daniel J. Solove

I’ve been a teacher for the past 15 years, and I’ve taught in several mediums including live classes and computer-based e-learning. I have come to the conclusion that the most effective factor in education and training is fostering emotional investment.

Simply put, students must care about learning the material. The more they care, the more they learn.

The notion of getting emotional investment from students might sound like simple common sense, but it is often not done …and often not even attempted.

Climbing Vines of Ivyby Daniel J. Solove

In 2007, Seung Cho, a student at Virginia Tech, killed 32 students and faculty and wounded 17. He then committed suicide.

One of the most troublesome things about this incident was that it might have been prevented if school officials and employees had a better grasp of privacy law. Appointed by the state governor, the Virginia Tech Review Panel issued an extensive report revealing that several University officials and employees knew about Cho’s mental instability but failed to share what they knew with each other. And nobody ever told Cho’s parents about his problems, his stalking of a female student, and his dark writings and erratic behavior. Cho’s parents said that if they had known, they would have taken him home and made him go to therapy. This is what they did when Cho had problems in high school.

Founder of TeachPrivacy

by Daniel J. Solove

I recently presented at the ABA Antitrust Spring Meeting about privacy and data security training on a panel called “Compliance Tools for In-House Chief Privacy Officers.” I discussed why all organizations should have privacy training and what makes privacy training effective. I thought I’d share with you the gist of my talk.

Why Train?

Educational Institutions and Cloud Computing: A Roadmap of Responsibilities

Daniel Solove
Founder of TeachPrivacy

by Daniel J. Solove

Increasingly, educational institutions and state entities handling student data are hiring outside companies to perform cloud computing functions related to managing personal information.

The benefits of cloud computing are that outside entities might be more sophisticated at managing personal data. These entities may be able to manage data more inexpensively and effectively than the educational institution could do itself. In many cases, cloud computing providers can provide better security than the educational institutions can.
