Decolonising Data Summit - aufgezeichnete Vorträge und Präsentationsfolien

Der Text

In the course of the AI debate, everyone is also talking about data or Big Data. In this context, concern is often expressed about the possible lack of objectivity of data in terms of gender, age, race, culture or sexual orientation. The problem is that this can lead to discrimination. An interesting event was organised in this regard by NORRAG, the Network for International Policies and Cooperation in Education and Training. It dealt with the "decolonisation of data". A keynote address and two panels covered the following topics:

  •     "A New World? Transformational Knowledge and Decolonization" (keynote).
  •     "Decolonising International Assessment" (Panel 1).
  •     "Decolonising Ed-Tech" (Panel 2).

The website linked here provides the video recordings of the keynote and the panels, as well as the slides for the keynote.

At the end of the course, the participants will prepare their own AI-related learning activity, ready to be put into practice.

    New webdossier: Cyber attacks on education - a worldwide problem

    Ein Laptop mit ganz vielen Zahlen und einem Schlosssymbol.

    We admit that the topic of our new dossier is not a very festive one given that Christmas is coming soon.  But it is a topic that has directly concerned us at the DBS and DIPF Institute over the past few weeks, as we ourselves have been victims of a cyber attack. Education Worldwide took the opportunity to research the topic of cybercrime in the field of education. It turned out that education is one of the most popular targets for hackers around the world. The sources we compiled for our webdossier will tell you the reasons for this, it will present you facts and statistics, and it will show you some examples of how different countries are dealing with this problem in the education sector.
