    Use of biographic data in classroom excercies

    In days gone by teachers may have asked students to write about themselves and/or friends and familly for a piece of work.

    Considering the hoops we have to jump through because of the DPA these days, the question is now can/should teachers still do this?

    Even worse should they ask them to write about these topics and then stick them on the wall as part of a display?

    Don't forgot the inevitable publishing to the web EEK!

    As long as you put in your DPA paperwork that you will be using data excempt from notification (ie personal data used within the context of a lesson) and you can opt to volounteer that you will notify people (which can be done by publishing the medium term plan / SoW ... mentioning that student information, ie likes and dislikes, will be used) then you are covered.
