5P’s for a Positive Digital Footprint

Any content published online will begin to create a digital footprint the individual who is responsible for it. Once it is “out there” it will become part of the online information world and others will form an opinion about the author.

In schools we, as teachers, must make sure we model appropriate behavours as well as teaching our students how to conduct themselves in this forum. Our students need to know not just how to post content, but what they should put there. They neeed to ensure the digital footprint they are creating is a positive one. This includes the complete array of options, be it in the form of posts, photos, messages or comments.

I like this infographic. It is simple but effective. It would be great in up in a classroom especially for our younger students, to serve as a reminder to them.

Cyberbullying infographic

I have been an advocate for teaching about internet safety and good digital citizenship at school for a long time. As we all know cyber bullying often occurs long after the students have left the school grounds.

It is always interesting to talk to students about this topic; asking them about what they think cyberbullying is, how it happens, what ideas do they have for helping others who are being cyber bullied and how might everyone try to put  stop or at least limit cyber bullying.

This infographic might be a good place to start the conversation.
