How can information you post online affect your future opportunities?
Standards Image

Our digital footprints can have a powerful impact on our future. This can be a scary thought, given that what's in our digital footprint isn't always in our control. Teach students that digital footprints are an opportunity to showcase their best selves and craft a footprint that leads to future success.

Students will be able to:
  • Learn that they have a public presence online called a digital footprint.
  • Recognize that any information they post online can help or hurt their future opportunities (college admission, employment, etc.).
  • Create a vignette that shows how a positive digital footprint can help someone take advantage of an opportunity.
