    The central idea of this research was to consider how a Freirean approach might be applied in the context of digitised learning environments in a way that encourages educators to adopt a critical approach toward the positioning of technology in contemporary classrooms. It is my assertion that privacy violations constitute a serious risk as adult education institutions become increasingly technologically focused. Digital pedagogy, as an evolving academic discipline must present solutions that enable enhanced technology-mediated teaching and learning while ensuring digital privacy for both educators and learners. The proper implementation of technology is dependent on user confidence. If technology is perceived as some sort of secretive monitoring or surveillance tool, the academic community may never fully accept it. By promoting awareness and developing proficiency in digital privacy skills we can have the best of both worlds.
