SECRET: ScareMail

(0)
WHAT? From government surveillance to Hollywood spoilers, everyone has a secret. How do scientists, hackers, spies, journalists, psychologists, criminals, companies and governments approach this world of secrets? From Easter eggs to cryptocurrencies, puzzles to politics, SECRET asks what needs to be be revealed, and what should remain hidden? HOW? Use this video as a prompt students to reflect on their digital presence and to think critically about the choices they make online. WHY? In ScareMail, artist Benjamin Grosser discusses some of the keywords that the National Security Agency (US) looks for throughout email surveillance. Some of the words that the NSA monitor for are not what we might expect and could be reasonably used by any of us in daily emails (i.e.: exercise, power, etc.). Great video for lessons on personal safety, using digital technology to communicate, and being responsible online.
