Keeping students safe and free: creating a shared statement of concerns around social media surveillance in education

This session is intended to bring together experts, advocates, and other stakeholders to discuss a set of considerations and concerns arising out of the surveillance and monitoring of K-12 students on social media (Instagram, Facebook, etc.), through automated tools and individual monitoring. This document, which we expect to be able to share in advance of the conference, came out of a workshop the Brennan Center and the Center for Democracy and Technology co-hosted in the United States in February 2019. The workshop convened educators, experts in privacy, civil liberties, and civil rights, social media platform representatives, law enforcement, and school chief information officers to discuss social media monitoring and other tech-based school safety efforts. In this session, participants can expect to take part in a robust discussion about the draft statement of concerns and contribute to refining and expanding it. We will also provide a brief background on how social media monitoring of K-12 students currently operates. We especially welcome input from international and diverse perspectives, as well as input on how best to make the statement a useful, dynamic resource for stakeholders concerned about the expansion of surveillance into schools.
