The Web we need to give students

An article by Audrey Waters addressing the issue of private data of students – http://hackeducation.com/2015/10/19/domains/

«Having one’s own domain means that students have much more say over what they present to the world, in terms of their public profiles, professional portfolios, and digital identities. Students have control over the look and feel of their own sites, including what’s shared publicly. This means they have some say – although not complete – over their personal data, and in turn they begin to have an understanding of the technologies that underpin the Web, including how their work and their data circulate there.»
