    Optional Instructional Resources

    When integrating digital tools into the classroom, it’s important to weigh both the purpose and benefit of the tools while also understanding the information those tools collect from students and protecting our students' privacy.

    The Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student records and Personally Identifiable Information.  The Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA) ensures that websites and resources aren't collecting information on students' under the age of 13.  


    As an educator, you are responsible for reviewing the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy of every tool you use to ensure that you are following both FERPA and COPPA guidelines.  It is imperative to understand student age requirements and the student data that is collected from those tools. 

    In Rockwall ISD, we have developed this resource to share tools that the Instructional Technology Team has vetted and approved for use within Rockwall ISD.

    If a tool you are interested in using isn’t on this list, please reach out to your campus Instructional Technology Specialist for support.
