Digital well-being for all (Part 2)
Our online identities are the keys that unlock personal, social and commercial accounts and transactions.
They create portraits of ourselves that others can access and by which they will judge us - as friends, colleagues, and potential employees.
We explored the importance of a digital footprint and its impact on learners in the modules Digital well-being for all (Part 1) and How to tread a positive digital footprint.
In this module, we will look at the strategies that learners can use to guard, manage and control their exposure to risk online.
This module will help you to formulate strategies to support learners’ digital well-being.
After completing this module, you will be able to:
• build strategies for the safeguarding of learners’ digital reputations into your teaching and assessment practice
• agree ground rules with learners to support a positive image and identity online.

This Module is great, but I would have liked to see another example of how things can go wrong. I really liked the 'interview' video in part 1 and something similar here would really press the point home. Report this review
