New MCL publication: Whose data are they? Elementary school students’ conceptualization of data ownership and privacy of personal digital data
The work of MCL members, Andria Agesilaou Dr. Eleni Kyza, has been recently accepted for publication in the International Journal of Child-Computer Interaction.
The paper is titled “Whose data are they? Elementary school students’ conceptualization of data ownership and privacy of personal digital data”. In this work the authors discuss children’s awareness of their digital data, issues of online privacy and issues of data uses by others. They also examine how students comprehend data ownership of their digital data and how they decide to concede this ownership to others. Evidence of students’ conceptualization of data ownership is scarce in the literature. Τhe authors, through this work, provide some initial findings about data ownership, and discuss how the community can better understand children’s disclosure or privacy protection attitudes, by further unpacking this construct.
The paper is part of the Special Issue “Smart Toys, Smart Tangibles, Robots and other Smart Things for Children” which is edited by Cristina Sylla, Alejandro Catala, Arzu Güneysu Özgür, Katriina Heljakka.
