Have you ever finally gotten freedom only to realize that you really aren’t that free? Well, follow a student as she finds out through a classmate about her digital footprint. Geared for upper elementary students, specifically 4th grade, this video helps students realize how the information they search and post on the web is not “private” but public to others companies or organizations. If students are not safe, responsible, and respectful about what they do on the internet, they could damage and hurt themselves or others. Commonsensemedia.org has great information about digital citizenship and your digital footprint, including lesson plans, videos and more!
Here is some great information from Common Sense Media that I found to be helpful, including videos to show to a class!
