Abstract: During the COVID-19 pandemic, when educational systems underwent a massive shift to online learning, stakeholders had limited time and resources to address the impact of increased datafication on their students. This use case describes adult U.S. education stakeholders’ perceptions of that shift and the path forward. It does so by applying a new, emerging principle, “Digital Self-Determination” (DSD), in which students’ agency and rights are respected throughout data use. We found that infrastructure, capacity, and knowledge barriers have kept schools from safely and effectively using data to improve student learning; that adult stakeholders’ needs and incentives as agents of DSD are, in some cases, poorly aligned with one another; and that while educators do have some concerns about the privacy of student data, they are poorly equipped to prioritize student data privacy.
