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 my uncles parents house as they are re building the fireplace. during my time there i was observing the work, dinging my assignment, and taking photos.


  1. What did you hear, see, smell, and feel in the work environment on Nov. 1st?

I heard the saw cutting the tile into separate pieces, I saw the tile being applied to the fireplace wall, and I felt the vibrations of the saw on my feet.

  1. What about the environment would motivate you to wake up every day to attend work?

I think that being on your own schedule and not having to work for someone else would be a good motivation because you can decide when to come to work and not have to come to work at the same time every day.


  1. What about the work environment would discourage you from waking up every day to attend work?

The work environment is very dirty and there is a lot of dust when cutting objects in place. As an example, when cutting the stone there gets a lot of dust in the air and it is not the best to inhale. Another example is when you work for yourself you must work twice as hard, and you’re not always guaranteed to get paid if there is no work to be done.


  1. What is ONE thing you found interesting about your workplace visit?

Something I found super interesting is the amount of stuff that was in the workplace. Right now, the job is tilling a fireplace and there are stones all over the floor. I also found that the way you apply the tile is cool because I have never seen that before. `
