1EdTech’s TrustEd Apps Management Suite Recognized in the EdTech Awards 2023
LAKE MARY, Fla., March 30, 2023 — 1EdTech’s TrustEd Apps Management Suite (TAMS) was recently recognized for Student Data Privacy with a Cool Tools 2023 EdTech Award from EdTech Digest.
TAMS is designed to make it easier and more equitable for teachers to access and use digital tools in their classrooms without inadvertently putting student data at risk. Instead of depending on an individual teacher’s research into a specific tool or app, which can vary depending on how tech-savvy a teacher is, TAMS brings apps and tools into one location for teachers to find what they need. It also shows vetting results so they know if there are any potential privacy concerns.
“Our members would tell us, time and time again, that teachers with the best intentions would find new tools to use in their classrooms without realizing what data was being shared,” said Dr. Tim Clark, 1EdTech Vice President of K-12 Programs. “This could also cause inequities, with some teachers being able to find higher quality tools than others. TAMS addresses both of these concerns and saves the teachers valuable research time because we already did the work for them.”
“TAMS is a prime example of how 1EdTech works with its members to create an open, trusted, and innovative edtech ecosystem that benefits all learners,” said Dr. Rob Abel, 1EdTech CEO. “It’s important to note that the vetting process uses the 1EdTech data privacy rubric standard, a community-developed and managed standard that helps edtech suppliers and school districts better understand data privacy.”
