Digital Footprint

Step 1Class discussion with students
  • Define Digital Footprint. We may think of posting pictures on social media, but what are some other, less obvious ways we leave a Digital Footprint? Use What’s Your Digital Footprint to help you generate ideas.
  • How can people see your information, or posts on social media, even if you have tight security settings?
  • What types of information present a positive image of you? What types of information present a negative image? Who are the people you might be worried about seeing your online image?
  • Many employers and universities will do an online search of their applicants. Do you think it is fair to judge applicants this way?
  • What are some ways students, and people in general, can protect their Digital Footprint? Read Your Digital Footprint for help.

Step 3Concluding discussion with students
