Privacy Pursuit! with Ontario Information and Privacy Commisssioner Patricia Kosseim
The Ontario Information and Privacy Commission, in partnership with MediaSmarts, has created a set of lesson plans for use in elementary classrooms (Grades 2-8). In this episode, we are in conversation with IPC Commissioner Patricia Kosseim about Privacy Pursuit! now available on the IPC website.
Here are some key takeaways from the episode:
1️⃣ Kids DO care about privacy! Contrary to common misconceptions, kids today are not indifferent to privacy concerns.
2️⃣ Privacy education is a MUST: Our schools need to address the lack of awareness about commercial activity, surveillance, data monetization, and behavior tracking by companies.
3️⃣ The Privacy Pursuit! Lesson Plans provide powerful entry points to necessary learning about privacy at a variety of grade levels.
4️⃣ Amplifying Collaboration: Collaboration across jurisdictions is crucial for effective privacy protection.
