DIGITAL TATTOOS AND PRIVACY
Forde, K., Moylan, R., & Code, J. (2022, August). Digital tattoos and privacy [Invited presentation]. Science World STEAM Days of Summer, Vancouver, BC.
Description: How we are discovered and perceived online is of major concern to many people today. As we go about our daily lives, we intentionally share parts of our digital selves with others while other parts of our digital selves can be shared, tracked, logged, and commodified without our consent. As such, digital technologies have changed how we relate to ourselves and the people around us. In this session, we outline some of the implications of this for K-12 teachers, especially in the off-duty context, and also consider the digital safety of our students, especially as it relates to data persistence. We offer a tasting flight of considerations that we hope will lead to a discussion and we offer some takeaway ideas for the upcoming semester.
