“Me and My Shadow is a project that helps you explore and minimise your 'digital shadows': the information traces you leave behind when you use the internet and mobile phones. This multimedia website provides informational texts in different detail and complexity, short videos, educational material and great further resources. In its “Alternative App Centre”, the website provides a structured collection of alternative privacy-sensitive online resources that can replace commonly used services (e.g. browsers, instant messenger apps etc.). Moreover, the tool offers learning material and fully planned lessons for trainers and teachers about topics such as “Data Brokers”, “Visualising Tracking in the Browser” or “What the Facebook”. Thus, this tool is particularly useful for teachers. However, the website is no longer being updated, so some information may be out of date. The project won a Deutsche Welle Bobs Award for "most creative" online activism in 2013.”

I love this resource and it was very popular with my study's participants. Even though the website is not being updated anymore, it's still a popular example (also among other researchers) of a well-made data literacy resource for different audiences.
