Dara Seidl


Dr. Seidl is an independent researcher and recent Ph.D. graduate of the joint doctoral program between San Diego State University and University of California-Santa Barbara. She is based in San Luis Obispo, California. Dr. Seidl will use the grant to develop a video toolbox for educators to teach geo-privacy in high school and college classrooms. The videos will serve as a springboard for discussion of privacy issues related to modern location capture technologies and will come with critical thinking questions and follow-up exercises for students. As a geo-privacy researcher and educator, this project supports Dr. Seidl’s efforts to integrate the latest science on location privacy with entertaining and immersive teaching methods for ethics in geography and GIS.
