Children’s Privacy: 49 countries; 290 companies; 164 learning products… harvest kids’ data without consent – re: Human Rights Watch global report

Kudos to Morocco, the one government found not to endorse an EdTech product that risks or undermines children’s rights. Other of the world’s most populous countries – not so much! In fact, alarming findings from the Human Rights Watch report, “How Dare They Peep into My Private Life?,” indicate it’s been open season on surveilling children worldwide, thanks to edtech use of tracking technologies capable of monitoring children in- and outside virtual classrooms across the Internet over time.

Think that’s not so bad? Remember that can provide access to the rest of the family too.
