A Technoethics Primer (with some focus on education)

There are so many questions that arise when technology and ethics collide. For a rich discussion on this topic or a “Technoethics Primer”, please join us for another Equity Unbound (@unboundeq) “Studio Visit” with Autumm Caines, @autumm!

Some questions we will discuss together:

What happens to identity and agency in digital spaces? Where is privacy important? What happens to the idea of consent when tied to intricate terms of service that we don’t understand? What paradoxes exist, and how do we deal with them, when technology is both problematic and helpful at the same time? What does it mean to learn with technology? How much do we need to understand technology to be able to understand ethical implications of technology?

In this interactive presentation with Autumm Caines, we will consider these questions and more as we introduce technoethics, ask some questions, and have some conversations. 

Monday, November 9th at 1pm ET, and 8pm Cairo (see it in your own timezone above)
