COPPA Law & the Production Gap #edchat


How do you reconcile the provisions in the COPPA law and the Production Gap? Given these two seemingly polar issues what are our responsibilities as educators?

This is something that all teachers struggle with (including myself). How do you reconcile the two? Would be interested in everyone's thoughts.

I struggle with this over and over! I just discovered Panraven.com & would love to use it with my 5th-8th gr kids, but...."must be 13."
This site from the FTC (which enforces COPPA) is VERY interesting, although I think it creates more questions than it answers -
