Cultural Identity and Technological Privacy


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 28 Aug 11:00 - 15:30


Room 2.99

The cost/benefit analysis of free to use educational technology almost always results in EdTech adoption, since the benefits often come at no financial cost to the school or learner. However, privacy advocates have pointed out that users still “pay” for free EdTech programs; not with money, but with their information. This consideration for student and teacher data privacy has generated various policy changes and updates to student privacy laws across several countries. However, users in those same countries might see no issue with providing personal data in exchange for valuable programs, and not all countries have deemed such an exchange controversial. It is clear that cultural identity may influence perceptions and policies regarding student data privacy. Identity is an important idea in many disciplines. Anthropology, education, sociology, technology and other fields have highlighted national identities, ethnological identities, ethnic identities, cultural identities, social identities and self-identities. The current cross-culture and interdisciplinary identity research has demonstrated an interdisciplinary trend. Our panel discussion will focus on critical themes based on current cross culture and interdisciplinary identity research. The panel will discuss the relationship between identities and technology. Through the study of the relationship between these factors, we can explore the impacts and influences of technology on the identity. Both micro-qualitative research and macro-quantitative research findings will be discussed. Our panel will use the two critical themes mentioned above to generate intriguing conversations surrounding these issues. We are looking forward to new understandings of identity and technology privacy.
