Protecting Student Rights in Big Data Education - Yoni Har Carmel

In the fourth and final event of the series Big data: big power shifts? the discussion turned towards education: data-based education offers individualized learning opportunities to schools and higher education institutions, allowing for more effective learning, fewer drop-outs and wider access to high quality education. But what if highly sensitive educational data falls into the wrong hands? How can student data best be protected and how is the current European legal framework performing?

FROM ALMA MATER TO ALGO MATER took place on 22 June 2016 at the Leibniz-Saal der Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Berlin. 

Yoni Har Carmel, researcher at the Haifa Center for Law and Technology, shared his views on the opportunities and risks of big data in education and highlight how regulation can shape a proper use of big data in educational contexts. He is author of the research paper ‘Regulating "big data education" in Europe: lessons learned from the US’, which is a part of the Internet Policy Review Special Issue ‘Big data: big power shifts?’ that accompanied the lecture series.
