These legal terms describe who controls the student's data.
"Educational" account: the school controls the student's books and data and can delete the account at any time. When a teacher creates an account for a student, that account is an "Educational" account, by default. But the student has the option of transitioning that account to an "Independent" account, described below.
"Independent" account: the student is in control of their own data and account. If is a student is older than 13 years old, they can decide for themselves if they want to transition to an "Independent" account. If a student is under 13 years old, they will need their parent's approval before they can transition to an "Independent" account. We display this option when students log into their accounts.
II. Transitioning to an "Independent" Account
When students log into their StoryJumper account, they are given the opportunity to transition their "Educational" account to an "Independent" account, so they can gain the following privileges:
- Own and control the content in the books they create
- Get email help from StoryJumper that's not blocked by school email filters
- Video chat with collaborators
- Share their books publicly
- Create personal books
To transition to an independent account, the student must ask their parent to complete the 3 step approval process. To do so, the student should follow the directions shown when they log into their StoryJumper account.
