I just asked Andrew Stillman and Jesse Spevack privately, but I thought I would share it with this community as well, as I know how many of you folks might have insights too.
In Denver, we are in our first full year of implementing GAFE and are really trying to do a tightrope walk of Student Data privacy. I wanted to ask about the “Drive Apps” that you can globally allow or disallow for Google Drive within the GAFE domain. The settings is shown below.
We currently have this turned off because we are very aware that Google Drive apps have a variety of permissions that they request, and we are trying to figure out how to best comply with our guidance for Student Data Privacy and only allowing the “good apps” to have the permissions they need in order to do the great work allowed within Google Drive.
Do you have any thoughts around how to ensure we can do right by our kids in terms of access to the right tools and ensure that we aren’t giving out student (or teacher, for that matter) data to the “third party apps”?
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
