Elite distinction recognizes TTM’s commitment to student online safety, security and privacy
—— Think Through Learning, a leader in education technology innovation, is proud to announce that its award-winning Think Through Math program has been recognized for compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) by the leading digital safety and privacy nonprofit, iKeepSafe. As part of this achievement, Think Through Math will display the iKeepSafe FERPA Assessment badge and COPPA Safe Harbor seal to identify that TTM has been proactively and independently assessed by an experienced privacy protection organization.
The iKeepSafe FERPA Assessment badge allows schools to easily identify websites, apps, data management platforms or other technology products that are in compliance with FERPA, a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Products that carry the iKeepSafe Safe Harbor program seal provide educators and parents with assurance that the product is compliant with COPPA, a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Rule designed to ensure that parents remain in control of personal information collected from their children online.
“Think Through Math has been committed to safeguarding student and family data privacy since the inception of the organization,” commented James Wrubel, Chief Technology Officer for Think Through Learning. “We were early innovators in this area, having introduced a few years ago a completely anonymous way for students to use TTM. As the second company to attain the iKeepSafe FERPA badge and the first to receive the COPPA seal, Think Through Math has distinguished itself among education technology companies for online safety and set a standard that we hope others will follow.”
