Transparency, privacy awareness, and access to information savvy are empowering and the session will highlight how. But there remain strong arguments that counter universal transparency. This session will also look at those situations where transparency creates more problems than it solves. Host: Sharon Vogrinetz, Alberta Teachers`Association.
