How it was made up? It is a fact, that we would rather choose convenience over security. The one obvious context is social media. Who takes time to read and understand the terms before signing up? Nobody. We entrusted our photos, messages and relationships to a platform without reading its policies. We blindly agree to it, not even put in thought that it might matter sooner... or now. The chain of data breaches and exploits had given us a conclusion. Companies never cared about protecting our data. They care about having to explain to us that it was stolen, misused or compromised. No law can defend us. Regulatory bodies cannot help us. No one can. Because we agreed. Is there by any chance that we can still be 'social' without sacrificing our privacy for a simple lift of convenience? Well, there is, and it's not a just possibility, but a change.
How is this related to 'smart education'? Privacy is the core foundation of any data-driven platform or not and it should be proactively implemented and default in all development. By establishing privacy by default, educational platforms and teaching devices are free to design extensive features and tools to cater their learners without endangering the user's data and identity.
Why 'social media'? The greatest offender of the digital privacy rights AND also it is quite the fact that everyone is need of it/utilizes it as a tool to make their everyday lives easier.
