My Footprints: A Great Digital Footprint Resource
Teaching students to be aware of the digital footprints that they leave behind is critical. While it is likely that many of us have moments from our youth that we'd rather forget (a.k.a. my high school perm), today's students are placing many parts of their lives in public arenas. Showing students how to be respectful and responsible in online forums is a life skill that must be taught. Teaching students to make good choices online can be difficult, but there is help out there! I just stumbled across My FootprintSD, and this site offers videos and stories of real students regarding their choices with digital footprints. I highly recommend it!
