Abstract

Compared to typical teens, teens in foster care face higher levels of offline risks, but little research has determined if this is also true regarding their online risk experiences. Yet, studying this underserved population poses many ethical challenges, including: 1) consent and assent, 2) confidentiality and privacy, and 3) sensitive data. We propose using participatory design as a method to help ensure that the ethical concerns around balancing privacy and disclosure, trade-offs between privacy and beneficial outcomes, and collecting and analyzing foster youth data, are calibrated to the specific needs of our user population.

Keywords: Adolescents, Foster Care, Ethics, Participatory Design
