Digital Footprint Assignment

1. How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least two examples.

If you post something that is offensive or makes fun of ethnic groups, employers won’t want to hire you.

And if you post things on social media making fun of someone without their consent, employers won’t want to hire you because you could do the same thing to someone in the company.

2. Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.

Ask yourself if you would be okay if your parents, teachers, and friends saw it.

Don’t post your last name, address or any other personal information.

And ask yourself if it’s appropriate, does it make fun of anyone, and is it harmful?

3. If you could go back in time, is there anything that you would do differently online? Think of what advice you would pass on to your younger self or other students.

Don’t be in a rush to get Instagram, Facebook, or Snapchat. Just be your self.
