Countering the Platformization of Education

On 17 December 2020, I will present “Countering the Platformization of Education” with Rossana Ducato at Shifting education from classrooms to online platforms – smooth as silk? a virtual event organised by Legal Hackers Luxembourg

Due to the spread of Covid-19 in the first months of 2020, the activities of most universities and schools across Europe had to migrate online. This rapid shift towards online education has been characterized by the use of third-party service providers (like Zoom, MS Teams, Skype, etc.).

The “platformization” of education, however, raises many concerns about copyright and data protection.

18.00 – 18.15: opening by Chris Pinchen (Bee Secure ambassador and organizer of the Privacy Salon)
18.15 – 19.00: “Countering the Platformization of Education” by Rossana Ducato (University of Aberdeen) and Guido Noto la Diega (University of Stirling)
19.00 – 19.30: online apéro
