Deepfakes / Deepflakes - the new ethical challenge on the Internet for computing students
Heard of deep flakes? Face swapping of celebrities has become a thing online. But what does that mean for us? Do you students know about this? The KS3 resource stays away from the adult themes that are explored in the KS4 version, but do be aware that students may well be aware of the issues in swapping faces of celebrities online and may ask you about adult entertainment. Discretion is advised and you will know what your students are ready for and will be able to handle.
