Privacy Pursuit – Media Literacy Week
We’re joined today by Patricia Kosseim, Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, and Matthew Johnson, Education Director at MediaSmarts, Canada’s Centre for Digital Media Literacy.
In this conversation, we discuss the connections between privacy, children and media literacy. In particular, we talk about Privacy Pursuit, a series of lesson plans for elementary teachers and students focusing on learning about privacy in our digital world.
In addition to the resource, our conversation led us into broader questions around privacy, children and youth.
