GG4L Announces SchoolDay, The First Privacy Centric Data Analytics Platform
ALAMEDA, Calif., May 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today Global Grid for Learning (GG4L) announced SchoolDay as being the first data analytics platform to use School Passport’s anonymization technology to ensure it can provide insights to educators without accessing school personal identifiable information (PII).
The habit of sharing school PII across edtech vendors has become commonplace, allowing for increased data breaches, ransomware attacks, and lawsuits for schools. Combining PII with data analytics involves risks for K12 schools and school districts. By leveraging School Passport’s anonymization technology, SchoolDay can continue its focus on improving student well-being. SchoolDay combines kindness with unique AI to deliver pedagogical support that improves well-being.
SchoolDay will be incorporated into GG4L’s other products, which are widely used by more than 30,000 schools serving over 15 million students.
“We’re very excited to bring School Day into the GG4L family and believe this strategic acquisition further strengthens our ability to serve K-12 schools,” said Robert Iskander, GG4L Founder and CEO. “School Day will be a powerful tool for educators to better meet the personalized needs of their students. The user experience is exceptional, and, most importantly, the solution offers complete privacy.”
