The A4L Community conducts the majority of its day-to-day work online via virtual meetings and webinars.  In addition, there are many face-to-face opportunities across the globe, including training, Annual Meetings and Community Days.

In-person meetings

We do not have any face-to-face meeting scheduled in the coming months.

'Showcase' webinars

We are delighted to be bringing the Vendor ‘Showcase’ webinars back for 2022.  These webinars aim to provide you with an opportunity to find out more about our members and their commitment to data management and data privacy.

Project Teams

The work of the volunteer Community is done by open invites to Project Teams.  Find out what is being worked on now and get involved…. should you be in them?

External Events

Here are a few of the external events that Staff and our Community members will be presenting at during 2023:

JAN 18-19

2023 SecurED Schools: K12 Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Conference (IL)


19:00 – 20:00 GMT

WEBINAR:  The State of Cybersecurity in K-12 Education

The growing dependence of K-12 schools (kindergarten, primary and secondary education) on digital technologies has led to increased cybercrime. Unlike other information and communication technology sectors, the EdTech industry tends to escape critical research enquiry as well as governmental scrutiny. EdTech businesses work in a fast-paced, relatively unregulated environment and their cybersecurity measures remain largely unknown. Instead, the state of cybersecurity in K- 12 education is often seen from the perspective of what the education community – teachers, school administrators, and students – does or doesn’t do to prevent and minimise cyber insecurity.

This webinar will discuss the recent report (Hillman, 2022) on the state of cybersecurity in education by bringing all major stakeholders in education including EdTech businesses, K-12 education representatives, policymakers, and organisations providing cybersecurity initiatives and programs that aim to prevent cyber insecurity in education. The webinar will also showcase the work of GESS, an international working group with members from the education community in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union, who have been working hard to map major global cybersecurity frameworks and develop one that is dedicated to the EdTech sector and K-12 education.
