What mark will you leave on the world? What is your “purpose”? How can you foster an online identity for yourself that supports and drives forward this purpose? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRkhkO4fKAg&feature=youtu.be

Social media offers a chance to choose how we present ourselves to the world. We can snap and share a pic in the moment or carefully stage photos and select only the ones we think are best. Listen as students reflect on how this impacts their lives. http://bit.ly/Oly2DFV4

What Digital Footprint?
Lots of middle schoolers are exploring and developing their own identities, and they often do this online and on social media. Some kids use multiple accounts, each for a different audience, but with this what’s real and what’s unrealistic can often get blurred. In this video, listen to other teens talk about the ins and outs of presenting themselves to others online, and consider what it means to “be yourself” in digital spaces. http://bit.ly/Oly2DFV3

As soon as you share the first photo of your kid, you're establishing their digital footprint. As kids get older and start creating their own content or engaging with others online, it's important for them to understand the tracks they're leaving behind and what those tracks might reveal. Parents can help guide kids toward creating the kind of footprint they can be proud of. https://www.commonsense.org/education/family-tips/k-5-digital-footprint-and-identity
