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.

Take your kid to work day!

   For take your kid to work day I went to the Vancouver Police department. I went with my Dad and sister. I knew a few people there from my hockey team as well. First we got a presentation about what it is like to be a police officer from the chief. Then we got to look at the some of the police gear. There was body armor, guns, and night vision goggles. After that we got to eat lunch which was pizza and there were also lots of snacks. Right after lunch we got to shoot pistols. To end the day off we looked at replica guns and learned about different types of drugs and got to see some drugs in person.
