1. More About Internet Safety:

In Year 5, students explore a variety of ‘Internet Safety’ sites

Check these out:

1. Digital Footprints

Your digital footprint, it is a mark left of every website, blog, comment, SMS chat you have used.
Make your digital footprint a POSITIVE ONE!!

THINK… before you post,comment, chat, download, sign in…

1. Where could you be leaving your ‘Digital Footprint’? Students are to draw the symbol for the app or website on the iDevice template.
2. Over the next 2 weeks, every time you visit a website, app or program, think about IF you are leaving your digital footprint there. You can add that app/website/program to your iDevice template.
3. My Future – iControl – What kinds of information would you want to find about yourself online in 10 years?
Fill in the footprint below with the types of search results (articles, posts, videos, images, etc.) that you would
want to see. Digital Footprint 10 Years Time template
Examples: “a YouTube video of me performing with my band,” “an online newspaper article about my
work to help the homeless,” “a photo of me at the White House meeting the president.” Be creative! (Source: Common Sense Media Trillion Dollar Footprint Student Activities)
Use Common Sense!
You can have a great time online learning from and sharing with others, but:
• Think before you post, because many things you do online will add to your digital footprint
• Remember to review your privacy settings
• Perform a search on yourself every so often to see what your digital footprint looks like
