This lesson meets standards for CASEL, AASL and ISTE.

Social media gives us a chance to choose how we present ourselves to the world. We can snap and share a pic in the moment or carefully stage photos and select only the ones we think are best. When students reflect on these choices, they can better understand the self they are presenting and the self they aim to be.

Students will be able to:
  • Describe how their curated self may or may not represent their real self.
  • Analyze the benefits and drawbacks of representing different parts of their real self online.
  • Create an avatar that represents both their real and curated selves.
