What others find about us online shapes who they think we are and how they feel about us. But do kids know what kinds of tracks they've already left? Help your students learn about their digital footprints and the steps they can take in the future to shape what others find and see about them online.
Define the term "digital footprint" and explain how it can affect their online privacy.
Analyze how different parts of their digital footprints can lead others to draw conclusions -- both positive and negative -- about who they are.
Reflect on what they want their digital footprints to be in the future and how they can monitor and shape them.
