Designing values in an adaptive learning platform

Abstract : To a certain extent, the process of design is always driven by guiding values. An ethical analysis, as it has been argued, can help in making such a process more reflexive, highlighting existing conflicts and discussing desirable solutions. These premises guide approaches like Value Sensitive Design or Privacy by Design. This paper discusses the issues of values in technology design in the context of a platform for adaptive learning. To what extent can principles of privacy by design be operationalized in design practices? Using the case of an adaptive learning platform, we describe how values have originally driven developers’ decisions and design choices and show how clashes between values are unavoidable. We claim that including a collaboration between ethicists and designers at an early stage of the design process may foster a reflection on the ethical considerations at stake.
