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.

3D Printing – Assignment 8: Final Product

For this project, we were supposed to design and print an object that would make the world a better place. I designed a phone holder to hold your phone up for when you’re watching something. This holder would benefit me especially because my mom always complains about my posture when I watch things on my phone, so if there’s a stand to hold my phone, it forcefully makes me straighten my neck and spine. Another situation where this stand is useful is when your hands are full, and you want your phone to be standing. 

For this project, I used TinkerCad to design my project and used Tinkerine for splicing it. At first, I did not understand how to merge shapes in TinkerCad, so I had to look up some tutorials. Tinkerine helped me splice the project and prep it for printing. By the end, I learned how to use TinkerCad and all its functions and understand how to use TInkerine. 

The 3D printer and printing it impacted my understanding because after using the phone holder, I realized that something as simple can be really useful, and that technology really has made my life easier and more efficient.
