    • The solutions tried so far…and why we need something else
      ESAA
      Synchronized passwords
      • Some good examples
      • Working very well for these schools
      • But not easily transplanted
      Centralized identity store
      • E-asTTle (ESAA), ENROL (SIA)
      • Provisioning and keeping up to date is too hard
      • All teachers, students and parents would be majority of NZ population
    • What we have come up withThe corner stones of our approach
      Keep identity data
      at the source
      Actual single sign on
      Non-centralized
      approach
      Full automation
    • Exciting stuff this will make possible
      Mash up pages – e.g. parts of LMS, ePortfolio and library system on one page
      Un-provisioned access for parents
      Generate credentials for all parents
    • Is it happening yet?
      YES
      over 40 schools already using it
      IDPs established in local loops (Christchurch, Wellington, Nelson)
      Commercial offerings from Watchdog and Edtech
      Growing list of connected services (Pressure from users works better than pressure from MoE)
    • Testimony from a userYou be the judge!
    • Are there any risks?
      YES - But none of them are new
      The technical side is the easy part
      Schools need good policies for managing identities and access
      Schools need to think about and manage risk
      Students need to learn what it means to have a digital identity
