Since 2011, billions of dollars of venture capital investment have poured into public education through private, for-profit technologies that promise to revolutionize education. Designed for the “21st century” classroom, these tools promise to remedy the many, many societal ills facing public education with artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, and other technological advancements.

This talk will investigate some of the technologies being adopted in schools and the nefarious ways they are used in classrooms that endanger student privacy from kindergarten through college. .
