Fall CUE Speaker Showcase: Elizabeth Wisnia

Picture of Elizabeth Wisnia with Geoff Belleau

One of my favorite things about Fall CUE is the opportunity to learn and collaborate with educators who serve students in so many different roles. Elizabeth Wisnia works for the California Department of Education and will bring her expertise for all in the Napa Valley in just a few weeks!

In addition to being the Data Privacy and Data Governance Consultant for the California Department of Education (CDE), Elizabeth Wisnia is a runner, baker, wife to a comic book artist/musician, and mom to two karate-sparring, basketball-playing, Fornite-loving boys.

What sessions are you presenting at Fall CUE this year?

(1) Painless Privacy: Empowering Educators and Students to Safely Create Content

(2) Don’t You…Forget About…

What inspired you to put this session together?

In addition to being a data privacy advocate, I am a lover of technology…of the possibilities, creativity, connectivity, inspiration, and personalized learning that can be unlocked through innovation. I am inspired by those who use the great power of technology to make the world a better place and would love to encourage educators and students to harness and use technology safely, responsibly, creatively, and powerfully.

Why should someone attend?

Participants who attend these sessions will receive practical tips for bolstering privacy when exploring and contributing to the digital world. Strategies for responding to fears about privacy from parents and other constituents will also be shared. Resources for staying current on scams, privacy laws/best practices, and digital citizenship will be disseminated.

Further, these sessions will be great opportunities to ask the CDE questions and provide feedback on how we can best serve and support you and your colleagues.

What’s your CUE Story?

I am forever grateful to my friend and colleague Geoff Belleau (former Ed Tech Teacher and Current CDE Ed Tech Consultant) for introducing me to the CUE Community and encouraging me to attend/submit.
