Getting Started •

It's time to think critically about information. What better way to do that than with cats? Follow the link or scan the QR code with your mobile device and enjoy the I Know Where Your Cat Lives website: review site about information, watch the overview video, and explore data visualization charts and maps.

Consider these questions, then pick three to discuss. Use the classroom whiteboard (in person) or shared document (archived) to brainstorm and share your thoughts:

  • Where does the data come from?
  • How is it possible the pictures are public?
  • What problems do you see with this dataset?
  • Why do you think some images are grayed-out?
  • What personal data are you sharing?
  • Do you feel the data is being exploited?
