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.

This project affected my growth and communications skills because it was slightly difficult to talk to my group, therefore I had to be very straight forward and persuasive. I think when you are sharing ideas to people, you need to be very honest and take pride in your idea.

I’ve learnt that you need to share and communicate your ideas persuasively and express yourself in a way you think people will understand. I can further develop my skills in communication within my other group projects to come.

I think I’ve greatly improved in thinking competencies because I’ve got a better understanding of how to brainstorm ideas to benefit or save electricity and a better understanding of how to think and build on my thoughts.

I think I can further develop my understanding of my thinking process and competencies when I’m working on projects or trying to find an idea that helps something. For example, I’ve improved my critical thinking and creative thinking, so now I can use some of my new skills in further projects or studies.

Because I’ve leant how to socialize and plan a project with other group members which will benefit me in the future if I’m ever doing another project involving planning or coordinating in a group.

In further projects and learning, I think I will continue to develop my skills in school projects because I will be working with other students. I might have to work with a group on an online project so I can get better at talking with others, sharing ideas with others and understanding from other points of view and using that input to further develop my own ideas.
