Roundtable on Algorithmic Literacy
Chair: Leslie Regan Shade (University of Toronto)
This roundtable will discuss the concept and parameters of algorithmic literacy, and how it can best be integrated into a range of formal and informal educational programming, from those focusing on children and young people, to adults and seniors. The roundtable will also consider the recent development of various codes of practice and principles for algorithmic transparency and digital and data literacy, from a range of stakeholders, including government and civil society in Canada, the EU and UK. The roundtable will conclude with ideas for best practices for integrating algorithmic literacy into digital literacy education, especially from a human rights perspective.
