What does your digital footprint say about you?

Opening Question to discuss:
    • Can you tell what a person is really like offline based on what you find online? 

Have you ever Googled yourself ? Have you ever checked your virtual identity? Do you know that you leave a digital footprint every time you get online? Do you know that whatever you do online is accumulated into a digital dossier traceable by others ? These and several other similar questions are but the emerging tip of the sinking iceberg.One that is packed full of concerns related to issues of our online identity and privacy issues.



Activities:
1. Show Videos to start discussion:
How will you express yourself?

Video #1:  Common Sense Media: Digital Footprint Intro from Joaquin E. Jutt on Vimeo.
