In the organization that I am analyzing for my enterprise architecture class there is a large department designated solely to Information Technology. This department needs to be up-to-date on all current legislation that affects how schools use technology in the classroom, specifically what precautions educators need to take when it comes to protecting student privacy online. The IT department would also need to be diligent about investigating the privacy policies of the approved online educational tools teachers may use. Providing an approved list to teachers will help guide them to use online tools that appropriately protect student privacy. Additionally, if the IT department comes upon online tools that are not compliant with specific privacy policies, it is vital that all educators within the district are informed that they should not use that tool.
