Privacy issues and selection of artifacts (1.2)
To discuss privacy issues considering e-portfolio presentation;
both from the authors' personal and legal point of view.
After this session the learners will be sensitised for the
challenges of data and privacy protection and knew the possibilities
and functions of their e-portfolio software.
Young learners without significant experience of
using ePortfolio packages need to be instructed to take special care,
regarding the privacy
of their personal details. This is because it is important to be
careful with the possiblities and positive effects that free access
to e-portfolios and artefacts in the Internet provide, with respect
to privacy issues.
There are several grades of privacy protection
to limit the access to e-portfolios and its artefacts:
of using different levels of privacy when accessing and presenting
- the specificity of public access to personal data on
- the trade-off between tendencies to present one's
work and to keep some things private;
- the value of publishing for
- reasons to present certain materials.
Discuss in your group what you like to protect in your e-portfolio
and for what purposes you allow access to individuals or groups
E-Portfolio tools offer several different possibilities
to protect data and manage data access.
Test your e-portfolio tool: Which possibilities does it offer?
Are you satisfied with these opportunities?
