Newark elementary schools are among 500 schools across the country participating in a program that enables parents to track the physical well-being of their children in the classroom.

In the program, parents use a smart thermometer that links to an app to collect data on illness and keep more kids healthy.

The benefits are knowledge and convenience. The downsides: privacy and data.

Coming up on Tech Tuesday, smart thermometers, social media and voter turnout, and more.
