Book Description

Digital Identity Management in Formal Education offers a broad analysis of the online self considered from educational policy, technological, legal and social perspectives. This book introduces the reader to the notion that digital identity is a multifaceted topic which requires a broad and systematic approach that is rooted in risk-based policy. It provides educational technologists, leaders and decision-makers with an accessible, jargon-free guide to their responsibilities towards students and instructors in today’s digitally networked schools and universities. Real-life examples illustrate how digital identities impact management and delivery, privacy and transactions, governance and accountability, and other interconnected choices in the use of technology-enabled services in formal learning.
