What is the Patriot Act What is FOIP What does it have to do with Education and the digital world? Creative Commons - Uploaded on June 1, 2007 by gruntzookiJune 1, 2007gruntzooki
The Act increases the ability of law enforcement agencies to search telephone, communications, medical, financial, and other records; eases restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the United States; expands the Secretary of the Treasury’s authority to regulate financial transactions, particularly those involving foreign individuals and entities; and enhances the discretion of law enforcement and immigration authorities in detaining and deporting immigrants suspected of terrorism-related acts. The act also expands the definition of terrorism to include domestic terrorism, thus enlarging the number of activities to which the USA PATRIOT Act’s expanded law enforcement powers can be applied.

The Canada Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act also governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by businesses plus trans-border data flows. (This applies to those provinces without provincial law or international law) In Alberta the Alberta Personal Information Protection Act governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by businesses. You can only collect what is reasonable for the task at hand, or what is legislated. If not governing law, you can only collect what is reasonable within the relationship of the individual. Eg. Bank could not pass on information to another agent based on that information. These laws will apply based primarily on who is collecting, using, disclosing personal information, where the personal information is being collected, where the person is located, among other things. SUMMARY - If a school is going to use a website as a teaching tool and thereby direct students there, the school will have to take responsibility for reading user agreements and privacy policies.
The purposes of this Act are : (a) to allow any person a right of access to the records in the custody or under the control of a public body subject to limited and specific exceptions as set out in this Act, (b) to control the manner in which a public body may collect personal information from individuals, to control the use that a public body may make of that information and to control the disclosure by a public body of that information, (c) to allow individuals, subject to limited and specific exceptions as set out in this Act, a right of access to personal information about themselves that is held by a public body, (d) to allow individuals a right to request corrections to personal information about themselves that is held by a public body, and (e) to provide for independent reviews of decisions made by public bodies under this Act and the resolution of complaints under this Act.

Due to this legislation, our greatest concern is student information being housed on web servers located in the United States of America. Because this information access contravenes the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIP) in Canada, student information can be accessed without permission for terrorism reasons. The Alberta Freedom of information and Protection of Privacy Act governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by schools. Will this likely happen with our students? Probably not, but because of this legislation fear exists.
A. Follow our regulations in school and do not access any sites where students information is being stored in the US. B. Wait for the government to pass legislation to change this and come up with a provincial digital citizenship policy. C. Become leaders in good digital citizenship and create model students/schools! What would you do?
Make all Administration, Staff, Students and Parents aware of this legislation Be part of creating good AUP Policies in schools Develop a WEB 2.0 procedure to follow!
WHY WEB 2.0? BLOG’S? WIKI’S? NING’S? BOOKMARK’S? Creative Commons - Uploaded on December 18, 2006 by SIDE-2December 18, 2006SIDE-2
WEB 2.0 Tools, including Wiki’s, Blog’s, Ning’s, have become a common and valuable tool for teachers with students in their classrooms. When used properly to engage students, meet critical thinking levels, bridge barriers or open classrooms, these tools can be very effective without a substitute for them. These are part of students everyday lives! They are digital citizens and we are stopping them. More schools are opening firewalls!

-Signed approval from parents -Parent information night -Removal of all student data when course is done -Students must work in WEB 2.0 environment for educational purposes only -MONITOR, MONITOR, MONITOR
