With two daughters at school, @alcinnz, you might know how I feel these days.

The worst issue is that many #Italian #teachers have been trained through #GAFAM webinars: people absorb them as #training while it's just #marketing.

Yet there is hope: I'm slowly spreading #Jitsi #selfhosting.


@Shamar @alcinnz exactly... My school provided us with a Google account. We have to use Google Meet everyday, with the provided account because, as my professors say, the school uses it to check user participation.

Ita: ogni giorno usiamo google meet. Dicono che dobbiamo usare l'account scolastico google perché le presenze devono essere tracciabili

@ranfdev @Shamar @alcinnz did you have to accept Google's Terms and Conditions to participate? (i.e. click "I ACCEPT" some where?) I wonder what they would've done if you'd refused to accept the Google Ts&Cs...

I can reply on this concerning my university: mail accounts migrated from self-hosting to GMail without the agreement by students, I just got my inbox turned into a GMail inbox


@alexl I'm not a lawyer, but to me that sounds like a very strong case of GDPR violation. If your university gave the full details of students' detailed contacts with lecturers and each other, including private correspondence, to a private corporation, and in doing so, exported it outside of the EU, then the GDPR fine should be huge.

Maybe @LaQuadrature could give you suggestions of what would be most practical to do?
