Protecting Student Privacy Without Going FERPANUTS - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of High... - 11 views

  • Most students don't care about FERPA - stuffy administrators do. If students cared in the slightest none of them would have Facebook accounts. Have them sign a FERPA waiver and get back to work! If they don't want to waive then provide alternate ways to earn credit.
  • I think it is really important to keep the spaces where we learn private. Students need to ability to test out ideas within a safe environment that is protected from outside search engines. We need an opportunity to test ideas and fail without a future prospective employer able to access student work. Materials that are public in the digital world lose their contextual basis and therefore can be misinterpreted at a later time.  

    Therefore, if I have students post and reflect, I do it all within the confines of a password protected website. Password protection is not perfect but at least it is an honest step at protecting a student's right to be a student.

    I tend to agree with James here, but keupher also has a point worth considering. Teach students to be wise and safe in public, or keep things "safe" and private??

Intimacy 2.0: Privacy Rights and Privacy Responsibilities on the World Wide Web - Web S... - 19 views

  • Intimacy 2.0: Privacy Rights and Privacy Responsibilities on the World Wide Web
  • This paper examines the idea of privacy in the world of ‘intimacy 2.0’, the use of Web 2.0 social networking technologies and multimedia for the routine posting of intimate details of users’ lives. It will argue that, although privacy is often conceived as a right with benefits that accrue to the individual, it is better seen as a public good, whose benefits accrue to the community in general. In that case, the costs of allowing invasions of one’s privacy do not solely fall on the individual who is unwise enough to do so, but also on wider society.
