Bookmarked Education before Regulation: Empowering Students to Question Their Data Privacy

We must work not only toward providing better security around student data but also toward educating students about the need to critically evaluate how their data is used and how to participate in shaping data privacy practices and policies. These policies and practices will affect them for the rest of their lives, as individuals with personal data and also as leaders with power over the personal data of others. Regulation is necessary, but education is the foundation that enables society to recognize when its members’ changing needs require a corresponding evolution in its regulations. And for those of us in academia, unlike those in industry, education is our work.

Autumm Caines and Erin Glass discuss data privacy and the importance of educating students about the topic. To support this, the two authors provide a number of resources and references, including the Ethical EdTech wiki and a collaboratively created course statement.ย  This is also something Sonia Livingstone, Mariya Stoilova and Rishita Nandagiri discuss.
