The “air” event and the ethical mission of the CNIL
The Law for a Digital Republic entrusted the CNIL with the task of leading a reflection on the ethical and social issues raised by the development of digital technologies. In response, the CNIL offers every year a thematic event rooted in the innovation landscape, calling “air” the future, innovations, revolutions.
Edtech and digital use: the challenges
In schools, digitization is revolutionizing learning and teaching. For children, these new practices have changed the way they perceive, read, and understand the world.
At the same time, edtech, new players who have appeared in the educational circle, are inspired by these developments and follow them. These publishers of software and interactive digital resources collect, store, analyze, enable visualization, sharing and interoperability of data and learning tracks. French or foreign economic operators have a huge pool of school and personal data.
However, this data is not data like others, it mainly concerns minors and reveals a lot of information about their private life. Therefore, special vigilance is required. The state, edtech, educators and families all have a role to play in finding a balance between data enhancement and respect for children’s rights and freedoms. Beyond the economic and sovereignty issues, there must be a reflection on current and future innovations through AI and algorithms and on the possible contribution of digital tools to reducing inequalities between students.
Bringing together field, policy and scientific expertise, the air2022 event offers an original, prospective reflection to understand the issue of the evolution of digital technology in education and the subsequent evolution of the French educational model through the prism of ethics.
The event will be available for replay shortly.
