This lesson meets standards for CASEL, AASL and ISTE.

Research shows that happiness in life is less about what you do and more about why you do it. When your actions have purpose, they lead to positive results -- both for you and the world. Help students use the power of the internet to turn their personal passions into positive impact.

Students will be able to:
  • Explain what it means to find your purpose and why it is beneficial.
  • Consider different ways that people have used their digital footprint to make a positive impact on the world and whether you would do something similar.
  • Reflect on what your own purpose might be, including a problem you want to solve and how you might go about solving it.
