Welcome to your Digital Portfolio at Dr. Charles Best. We provide a unique and innovative digital culture for all students to learn in. We are a 1:1 school which means each and every student and staff member uses a device to enhance teaching and learning, and most importantly, help prepare our students with tools and skills to be successful in the future.

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.

Blog Post #3 Deliver/Debrief

 

Reflection:

Because of this project, I learned many things. first of all, I learned what microbits are. All of the programming and creating with the microbit, I’ve never done anything like this. I learned more computing skills like posting more on my edublog. In the future, I will continue to learn how to do computer programming and develop useful skills to help with my future career. I don’t communicate with peers a lot, so this project gave me a lot of opportunities to interact with one another. This is a difficult project, so communication is very required. My partner and I and other groups talked about how are we going to code the microbit and successfully came up with unique plans. I respected other peers and talked through each other on the tasks and jobs we each get. Also, anything I didn’t understand I asked the teacher and other peer tutors for further information. In the future, I will continue to try to interact with different people to finish any other group project waiting ahead of me.
