The Impact of Instructional Technology on the Right to Privacy.
Miller, Arthur R.
The current trend toward the use of computers and other technology in education is becoming one of the most socially desirable applications in our time. However, the increasing use of these media could lead to developments constituting invasions of privacy: the mass media tend to desensitize people to real invasions of privacy. Dangers exist also in the storage and re-use of data compiled during seemingly innocuous uses of technology, such as computer-assisted instruction and videotaping. We should take precautions to control such problems caused by the widespread use of instructional technology. (SP)
