This competence describes the ability to take into account the relevant legal aspects when using digital media, in particular with regard to protection rules such as the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The aim is to know and observe personal data and privacy policies.

Data protection and responsible handling of personal data are of great importance in the digital world. The GDPR and other regulations stipulate how personal data must be collected, processed and protected.

Responsible use of the GDPR: A teacher ensures that the SuS, which he asks, are informed about the purpose of the survey. It obtains its consent, because no personal data may be collected without consent. In doing so, the teacher works with a data protection-friendly survey software that, for example, offers suitable security measures.
