An educational programme for the #Datamaze project

The topic: privacy and safety on the Internet, metadata

How does my digital content get created? What all can be done with it? Who can access it? The objective of the DATA SHADOW programme is to talk with participants and reflect on what data they are creating, for example through social networks, messenger applications, or video streaming services, and whether they realize who can find it and what they can use it for. We live in an era of remixing, post-production, an open universe of networking – data is omnipresent and easily used.

In one of its projects the Tactical Tech organization works with the concept of a “digital shadow” – data that we create as we move through and participate in the internet without realizing it. These are various types of data (called metadata) that often is created with our agreement but without our awareness. One could say that we create it unintentionally. From thinking about this data that one does not directly generate oneself, one is only a few small steps away from thinking about the data that is the result of our activity in the digital world (called content). 

The accompanying programme is adapted to the age of the group and contains discussions, activities within the exhibition, and a final workshop.

Surprise friends or family with an unconventional afternoon, or get to know your colleagues in other roles - you can order this programme as a family workshop or team building. More information
