Big Data, Education, and Social Responsibility

Abstract. The Internet has become one of the basic tools in everyday life of society. It is intensively used for education, as well as for entertainment, communication, and many other social activities. However, considering the evidence of digital acceleration, schools have become more disconnected from the World Wide Web in different ways. This paper identifies education opportunities and challenges in the contemporary informational realm addressing certain issues related to big data. On the one hand, it can revolutionize academia by giving it a new life. On the other hand, it can be dangerous, deceiving, and even killing. Thus, touching the contemporary reality linked to the daily life of students, parents, teachers, administrators, and other segments of society, this work aims at staying on guard of social responsibility pointing toward the new research horizons concerning the ways of innovative improvement of teaching products and services, informed learning strategies, and big-data-driven decisions related to both theory and practice in the settings of educational institutions.
