Your digital footprint is your digital history and although it goes along with internet safety it is not the same concept.Thinking about your digital footprint is recognizing that every time you go online you create a digital trail that will stay with you forever!

If you are considering a digital project with your students (blogging, podcasts, movie or story creation) planning needs to be done. Perhaps the students will create an online project map as an outline that leads to a written script, or they will be searching online, or collaborating.

Share this video from Common Sense Media and ask this guiding question:“What online information do you want connected to your name in 10-15 years?”
