What’s your digital footprint? I wear size fifteen wide!
We’ve been looking at what we should teach our seventh graders about internet safety and security, digital citizenship, and their digital personas.
A visitor to campus recently mentioned that he was surprised how few college students know, “Even basic things about their digital footprints like setting up a Google Alert for their own names.”
Wha?!?!?!? How could I not have thought of doing that?
Needless to say, setting up a Google Alert for your own name will be one of the lessons that we incorporate into our Computer Basics unit.
