On August 30th, Privacy Lab is hosting an event on Tools to Teach Privacy.
Erin Berman and members of her web team will talk about the process of transforming a broad, intimidating topic like online privacy into a learning opportunity that is personal, approachable, actionable, and reusable. The result, their Virtual Privacy Lab tool, was developed with a grant from the Knight Foundation and is available in three languages. They will be joined by members of the Teaching Privacy team from Berkeley’s International Computer Science Institute, their partners on the Virtual Privacy Lab. The Teaching Privacy website provides information about the various threats to online privacy and how Internet users can make better decisions about their privacy. They also provide educators with lesson plans and materials that they can use to bring privacy education to their classrooms.
