This article references a recent report published by the UK Children's Commission on data collection in schools, but the bulk of the article is dedicated to the data-collection activities of ClassDojo. The authors write, " New research examining ClassDojo is raising concerns about how student data about behaviour may be collected, accumulated and then used." The range of data collected is a bit astonishing, and includes such things as "working hard, on-task, and displaying grit." And it "may also obtain information, including personal information, from third-party sources to update or supplement the information you provided or we collected automatically." Via Aaron Davis.
