Ashley Chiasson

As I drove to work earlier this month, I heard a story on CBC Radio from a parent who refused to sign a consent form for their child to use Google Classrooms in their school. They had privacy concerns and were upset that there was no alternative considered for those who may not sign the consent form. In this scenario, the student was able to complete their work, using Google Classrooms, signed in as the teacher – obviously not ideal.

Google admits it is tied to the physical world when it comes to its Google Wallet service. This article about Google rolling out a debit card really got me thinking.

Learning with e's

There is a lot of press coverage at the moment about invasion of privacy, and much discussion on how it can be protected (privacy, not the invasion of it).

My Experience Starting Out with Google+

Learning Developments
