8:45 - 10:00 a.m. | The Future of Reputation: Gossip, Rumor, and Privacy on the Internet | Dan Solove, John Marshall Harlan Research Professor of Law, George Washington University Law School | Stevenson C/D
Teeming with chatrooms, online discussion groups, and blogs, the Internet offers previously unimagined opportunities for personal expression and communication. But there’s a dark side to the story. A trail of information fragments about us is forever preserved on the Internet, instantly available in a Google search. A permanent chronicle of our private lives—often of dubious reliability and sometimes totally false—will follow us wherever we go, accessible to friends, strangers, dates, employers, neighbors, relatives, and anyone else who cares to look.
People – especially teenagers and college students – are increasingly spilling out their most personal secrets, as well as intimate details about their families and friends, in blogs and social networking sites. In a world where anybody can publish her thoughts to a world-wide audience, how should we balance privacy and free speech? How should the law protect people when harmful gossip and rumors are spread about them on the Internet?

10:30 - 11:45 a.m. | What Every School Official Must Know About Privacy | Dan Solove | Stevenson C/D
Professor Solove will discuss the privacy issues that are affecting schools, from K-12 to colleges and universities to graduate schools.
Schools hold an extensive amount of personal information about students. Schools also face some of the most difficult privacy problems, from cyberbullying to searches and surveillance. School officials must comply with a very complicated and often overlapping set of state and federal laws and regulations.
Increasingly, schools are having difficulty in grappling with the privacy issues they face. Effectively addressing privacy is essential to prevent violations of the law, avoid litigation, and protect the welfare of students and employees.
Privacy in schools extends far beyond the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The Act does not address alumni and donor records, employee information, searches and surveillance of students, confidential information not maintained in records, cyberbullying, data retention and destruction, data security, sexting, and countless other issues.
Professor Solove will discuss the various privacy issues schools must face and how schools can best deal with them.
11:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. | Lunch | Baker Room
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. | Hot Topics: Instructional Technology Task Force Meeting | Summit 2
1:00 - 2:15 p.m. | Roundtable Discussion: Timely Topics for Highed Education IT Leadership | Facilitated by Tracy Mitrano | Stevenson C/D
[This session replaces the University of Hawai'i's "Living Through Data Breaches" session. Due to newly emerged legal restraints associated with the amended pleadings of the plaintiff's case against UH, neither David Lassner nor Jodi Ito are at liberty to speak publicly about the matter.]
Consequently, the afternoon session will be a facilitated discussion on some timely topics. The first topic will be to discuss the issues in the Archibald, Robert B. and Feldman, David H. book, Why Does College Cost So Much? (Oxford University Press. 2011, available on Kindle). This book includes an important analysis of information technology that is highly relevant to CIO and other IT leaders.
A second topic is no less pressing but may lead to a more free-wheeling discourse on how liberal arts education can better prepare students for the global economy. Research suggests that, the Internet notwithstanding, U. S. college students are more parochial and less savvy about global politics, knowledge of foreign languages and cultures, and diversity of religious beliefs or practices than they were a generation ago. What can higher education do, and IT in particular, to counter this trend and guide students toward a deeper understanding of the challenges around them?

This presentation will include a demonstration of some of the barriers blind and print-disabled students encounter with educational technology and content; why asking disability student services to provide equivalent access is no longer feasible, sensible or cost-effective; the steps required to move a campus to full accessibility; and an update on current developments in accessibility, such as, the Congressional Commission on Accessible Instructional Materials in Post-Secondary Education, Google Apps, CourseSmart, the work being done to ensure that grant-developed educational technology is accessible and the legal strategy that will be pursued by the National Federation of the Blind to move the process forward and to address the accessibility of mobile apps and the next generation of educational technology.
9:30 - 9:45 a.m. | Break
9:45 - 11:00 a.m. | Legal and Policy Issues You Need to Know | Steve Worona, Senior Policy Director, EDUCAUSE | Stevenson C/D
What are the key legal and policy issues on your campus? Which ones are keeping you up at night? Congress and the federal regulatory agencies continue to focus their attention on technology issues. From open source to social media, from copyright infringement to cybersecurity, new laws and new rulings impact how we deliver and manage campus IT services today and how we plan for their deployment in the future. In this session, we will discuss government actions most likely to impact your operation in the next 6 to 12 months.
