February's Theme is Responsible
“Filling out a form, sending an email to a friend, posting a photo, and pretty much everything one does online – even the simple act of visiting a website or using a search engine – leaves a trail. This trail, called a digital footprint, is made of bits and pieces of information on one’s computer and on other computers and servers around the world, which allow other people to learn about you.” Commonsense Media.
In Elementary School, students will focus on internet safety and an introduction to the concept of a digital footprint.
In Middle School and High School, students will learn how to manage their digital footprints and to think about their digital footprints before they post.
Please see below some of our resources for Parents to help students become responsible.
