Digital Footprint

A digital footprint is the collection of all the traces you leave in electronic environments as you use or move through them. Some is content you actively volunteer—like your Facebook profile. Other material is passive—the cookies a site stores in your browser, the content your district collects about your use of their equipment, etc. All this data can be aggregated to build a profile of you and your behavior.

Tips for Creating a Positive Digital Footprint

  • Always THINK
  • Never post anything that you might find embarrassing later.
  • Be careful with the pictures you post on your public profiles. Remember others will see them and judge you based on their content.
  • Change the privacy settings on your social networking sites so that only your Friends can see your information
  • Do not disclose your personal address, phone number, passwords. Bank card numbers…etc even in private messages. There is always the possibility of somebody hacking into your account and finding them.
  • Do not post things to bully, hurt, blackmail, insult, or afflict any kind of harm on others
  • Always keep in mind that once information has been posted online, it can be almost impossible to remove because of archiving and file sharing. Even though you deactivate your accounts, the information may still be retrieved by others.

My Employability Skills: A Reflection

Discuss the skills that you would like to work on and what you can do to improve or practice them so that you are employable in the future:

I want to work on the skill of ability to accept and integrate criticism and feedback because the world is , harsh and I won’t always get good complements. So, I would like to improve by reminding myself that it’s for my own good an the feedback and criticism will help me in the future. I also, want to work on time management because it is good to be organized. In the future I will try to plan all my schedule and go by my schedule that I’ve written to make my life easier and to use time wisely when I am very busy.


Describe the skills you currently have and how you used them in the activities:

Teamwork was a big skill we needed because when someone needed help remembering someone’s name or what they like (their hobbies) we help that person out giving them hints or giving the answers. I have a teamwork skill. I am good at working in a group and helping out each other. We had to communicate a lot in the activities because we were telling our names and hobbies. We also, had to pass the yarn to someone and when we did that we used communication. Problem solving was a big need because we had a big knot in our yarn so we had to help this girl unknot the knot. Enthusiasm and attitude was a skill we had because we needed to help and cheer the people around us and let them know we are here for them. I have all these skill in the tool box and I used them during our activities in class.
