Student Digital Footprint
When students use Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and Twitter, they are building a digital footprint that may last a lifetime. A digital footprint is the data trail left from digital interactions.
With regards to the web and internet, an important consideration for students is the online persona they create for themselves and its possible implications. The information students share online can be viewed by college admissions officers and future employers.
Students can inform themselves about how to build a positive online footprint while in high school.
