Insights on Privacy - Kate Raynes-Goldie and Matthew Johnson
Do youth care about privacy? We explored this question on September 8th, 2011, when our Office held its Insights on Privacy armchair discussion. We invited two experts on young people's use of social media, Kate Raynes-Goldie (@oceanpark) and Matthew Johnson (@MFJ72) to talk about what privacy means to youth and how we can help youth preserve their privacy by promoting digital literacy skills.
Kate Raynes-Goldie is completing her PhD in the Department of Internet Studies at Curtin University of Technology. Her current research explores Facebook privacy issues by combining a study of the ideologies that drive the site's privacy architecture with a nuanced look at user understandings and practices. Kate is also a Research Associate at Ryerson University's EDGE Lab, where she is researching privacy, autonomy and social media for children. She is the founder of PrivacyCampTO, Canada's first privacy unconference.
As Director of Education with Media Awareness Network, Matthew Johnson creates resources for educators, parents and community groups. He is the designer of MNet's comprehensive digital literacy tutorials Passport to the Internet (Grades 4-8) and MyWorld (Grades 9-12). Matthew also writes the Talk Media blog, one of the most popular sections of the MNet Web site. He has given presentations and interviews to parents, school, community and industry groups on topics such as the effect of media violence on children, video game addiction, alcohol advertising, children's use of new media and the moral dimensions of computer games.
This event was the fifth in a series hosted by the OPC to shed light on experts doing new and thought-provoking work in the field of privacy.
