"Learning Journals" appears to be an online service for UK nurseries and schools. It's an outsourced activity tracking system in which educators enter data about the conduct of nursery and school-age children, and parents/guardians login to view/comment.
My daughter's nursery just announced they're introducing this. When I asked them about the confidentiality of the data, they provided some wafer-thin assurances about the security of the system; apparently the nursery manager was under the impression that "nobody can access the child's photos/information, not even Learning Journals themselves" - which is clearly false. But I digress. To me, this is a concerning prospect. An online record of my daughter's every day since the age of 1? No thanks. I wonder if there is any precedent in fighting (or at least forcing audits on) such services, and how GDPR may be used by parents to protect their children's information from being splattered all over random databases. Thoughts very much appreciated. Alex -- Encrypted email preferred. GnuPG key fingerprint: B7B7 A1AD A1C4 DACA 10EB ABB4 1730 4367 7ECD B484
