An in-depth compilation of bridging principles to best practices
and fostering positive online/offline experiences for children.
This case study gallery is an in-depth compilation of bridging principles to best practices and fostering positive online/offline experiences for children. We curated 11 unique examples of how data and privacy principles have been designed in practice and incorporated into children’s technologies across Finland, India, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, Uganda, United States, and the United Kingdom. The cases also represent a diverse set of
children’s related technology: learning platforms, online advertisements, social media platforms, machine learning algorithms, newborn medical devices, training for job opportunities, and special education programs for children with autism. For each case study and children’s technology, we outlined the following: mission and goals, key problems, core users, process, data principles, core challenges, impact and progress, and information about the team. The output of this work is an aggregated set of principles spanning categories across (1) policy and legal documentation, (2) product design, engineering and user experience, and (3) process and data governance. The principles derived from these case studies can lay the foundation for future standards related to children’s data
privacy and governance.
