Big Data, Little Kids: Privacy, Networks & Cyberbullying in the Digital Age


 
The Educational Technology Council of The ATA is so pleased to present Jane Bailey, Valerie Steeves, Leslie Shade and Priscilla Regan in a public lecture.
 
The accelerating pace of technological change is having a profound impact on privacy protection for children and youth. Canadian children with active digital footprints on the Internet have become soft targets for commercial data gathering and marketing practices by many companies. This online behavioural targeting of youth is also reinforcing real-world discrimination and creating new forms of cyberbullying.

The Educational Technology Council of the Alberta Teachers' Association is pleased to present an evening public lecture on Thursday January 26, 2017 at Barnett House in Edmonton with four distinguished professors, Valerie Steeves (Department of Criminology, University of Ottawa, Jane Bailey (Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa), Leslie Shade (Faculty of Information, University of Toronto), and Priscilla Regan (School of Policy and Government, George Mason University).
 
This evening public lecture will share new Canadian and American research on the privacy challenges posed by networked classroom technologies and educational software.  It will also share new insights on education law and policy designed to protect students from cyberbullying.
