How to tread a positive digital footprint

4.2    

Each time we contribute to the web, in public spaces and in private spaces we share, we leave a trail for others to find.

The modules Digital well-being for all (Part 1) and Digital well-being for all (Part 2) explored how this is done and how we might manage it for the best outcomes.

In this module, we will explore awareness of how digital technologies can negatively affect well-being.

Aim

This module explores what data learners leave behind when they go online and how to manage this digital footprint.

Objective

After completing this module, you will be able to:

• explain and discuss with learners the real-world consequences of online identity, presence and reputation
• compare and contrast the characteristics of online profiles that present positive and negative images to potential employers and others
• act as a role model of professional behaviour in creating a positive image on social media and other online transactions.

Using real world examples relevant to the setting, e.g. Linkedin or professional emails and messaging for 'modelling' digital footprints, could work well.  Report this review
