Zoom Returns to New York City Schools after Platform Ban

 

After the New York City school district banned Zoom as a web conferencing platform due to privacy and security concerns, the ban is now being lifted, putting the pandemic’s leading conferencing solution back into educators’ and students’ hands.

The New York City Department of Education was initially concerned about the safety of virtual classrooms and how many controls (or lack of controls) there were for meeting hosts and moderators. This included the infamous trend of “Zoombombing” concerns, which even drew the attention of the FBI and demands for privacy from New York’s Attorney General.

On this Business Casual snippet, hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern look to MarketScale contributing writer Kevin Hogan for insights, who breaks down his thoughts on the initial ban and response, as well as how the relationship between web conferencing platforms and the education system might continue to evolve and address each others’ concerns.

Kevin Hogan brings 25 years of experience as an acclaimed writer, editor, and commentator covering the intersection of society and technology, especially education technology. His experience includes Senior Editor at MIT Technology Review, Editor-In-Chief at The Manufacturer Magazine, Executive Editor at Scholastic Administrator, and most recently, over 12 years as the Managing Director of Content at Tech & Learning.
