Description:
Tis one thing to talk about privacy and intellectual freedom in the abstract, but do we connect these notions explicitly to concrete digital literacy? The aim of this workshop is to reveal, frankly, how some information is “read” in computers, how persons can better educate themselves and their friends & family in the area of digital privacy so each person can take his or her knowledge beyond simply content into the realm of digital context. This aim brings together the direct-action option of making a few adjustments to a user’s app settings by embracing a revised model of lifelong learning. The result more fully integrates the user’s own use of digital tools and their training of others to simultaneously provide better privacy and to educate each person about using digital tools more intentionally – even mindfully

Mindfulness in Privacy Poster (#CUALIS19)

Posted on Updated on

On Friday 08 February 2019, I presented a poster on privacy at the 11th Annual Bridging the Spectrum Symposium – I attempted to use a ‘mindfulness’ metaphor and did a lightning talk on the subject.

T’was fun for me – I hope everyone else had as much fun as me. I kept the poster mostly text-free in order to prioritize conversation.

Thank you to Catholic University of America and the Department of Library and Information Science.
