Who Owns Your Data?

Overview

This ready-to-teach double lesson pack is aimed at students in key stages 4 and 5. During the course of the two lessons students will:

 

  • Examine what the term digital footprint means;
  • Explore the digital trail that individuals leave when interacting online;
  • Critically consider why organisations collect data;
  • Examine what legal rights they have with regards to their personal data and consider how they can start to take control of their digital footprint.
This resource could be delivered either face-to-face in the classroom, or virtually via a platform such as Google Meet or Microsoft Teams. Where the resource is being delivered virtually a Word version of all the student activities has been provided in the ‘student workbook’.

Acknowledgment: 
These teaching and learning resources were developed in partnership with the global consultancy firm, FTI Consulting. We are grateful for their support in boosting young people’s awareness of our democracy, and the ways we can work together to strengthen society for everybody.
