Uberveillance: Where-‐wear & Educative Arrangement
Mr. Alexander Hayes, PhD Candidate, School of Information Systems & Technology (SISAT) University of Wollongong
Point-‐of-‐view (POV) or body-‐wearable-‐video (BWV) technologies are now recognised as a contemporary (and in some cases) preferred first-‐person rich media source for educational learning resource creation, observational recount and 'on-‐the-‐job' training activity. As this practice promulgates through the Australian education & training sector, the intersect between law enforcement, private investigation and the armed services provides educators with salient reasons to critically analyse and determine the impact and implications these technologies are having upon learners, the sector they are employed within and the broader community alike.
What are the benefits / pitfalls that may emerge as these technologies become location enabled, centrally data managed and user-‐identity dependent? Is there a potential for misuse of the technology and if so, what are the socio-‐technical considerations that educational organisations need to make now?
