Abstract

Whilst developing technologies such as mobile communication devices are presenting education with opportunities to generate flexible and portable solutions to teaching and learning it is clear that there are other, less desirable, outcomes occurring. With the convergence of technologies, the most recent mobile phones offer a variety of opportunities to receive, capture and transfer data. With such potential, the incidents involving the transfer of sensitive data and digital intrusion through mobile phones have been documented within the media. In order to examine the current and emergent risks mobile technologies may present towards privacy, the following paper employs the use of a taxonomy designed specifically for this purpose. Finally, the implications for educational establishments, mobile phone manufacturers and policy development in light of such risk analysis will be considered and discussed.
