The course »Data privacy & Big data« deals with these online activities that become our personal digital footprint. What data do we consciously or unconsciously disclose about ourselves and which of this data is collected and analysed by third parties? To better understand how such systems work, you slip into the role of an analysis algorithm. Later, you will use the microboard Calliope mini to program a chat program that works with encryption. You will be taught the mechanisms for taking action against unwanted data collection and analysis.

Even if many have already heard that our usage behaviour, our written messages, uploaded photos, our likes and hashtags are being analysed, most do not know what the concrete effects are. photos, our likes and hashtags are being analysed, most are unaware of the concrete effects that constant and data collection can have. The digital footprint we leave behind every day can create movement and personality profiles that have become so valuable to companies that they offer their digital services supposedly for free. It becomes problematic when users are not made transparent which data is collected for which purpose. It becomes even more problematic when data is sold on to third parties. Especially with sensitive personal information, it is even more important to keep control over your own data. Caution is also advised when using messenger services, because some of these services read contact data from the address book and thus collect data about third parties in a roundabout way.
The goal of the course is to provide you with content-related assistance in developing the most important concepts on the topic of data protection and big data, as well as didactic recommendations for teaching them in the classroom.
The course consists of introductory videos, live training, explanatory videos as well as additional practical teaching handouts (as links), the opportunity for exchange and consolidation in the discussion forum, as well as learning objective checks.
