Personal Metadata: Some articles

Posted: May 5, 2015 in Educational Technologies, Stimulus

As someone who educates in the realm of Digital Media and Computer Science I have found it interesting to follow the developments of a recently published article about an individuals request to gain access to their personal metadata from a major Telco. The concepts explored in this article, Me and my metadata, relate closely to an article from 2011published by Zeit Online, Betrayed by our own data. There are many implications that these articles identify including privacy and personal profiling.

These articles provide valuable stimulus for students to explore real-world scenarios on topics that they need to be made aware of. This is particularly pertinent for senior students in High School studying Computer Science courses.
