PIM toolkit Launch, September 25, 2008

The following videos are from the September 25, 2008 launch of the Privacy and Information Management (PIM) toolkit. These videos are excellent resources for PIM champions and school board teams to provide professional development for various groups or departments within their boards in the area of privacy and information management.

When using the videos for training purposes with staff in your school boards, you should first establish your privacy training objectives, then review the videos ahead of time, noting which sections (in whole or in part) you wish to share with your audience in order to support the desired privacy training objectives.

The videos can also be used, either in whole or in part, as workshop/discussion items. The training facilitator can select a video or a clip from one of the videos and develop discussion questions ahead of time for audience members to discuss and work through after watching the video.
