This month, the Technology Committee continues its Digital Citizenship initiative focusing on Digital Footprint and Reputation. This program aims to educate students, faculty and staff on how to manage their digital footprint, which is "a trail of data you create while using the Internet. It includes the websites you visit, emails you send, and information you submit to online services." Recommendations on how to monitor your positive digital footprint include: periodically Googling yourself, using privacy settings in all social media applications, and using care and discretion when posting personal information to social media accounts. Discussions ranging from how to choose a strong password to how to safely use social media are happening across divisions. We encourage parents to read the flier below, and continue these conversations with their students at home to promote positive and healthy usage of technology. Common Sense also provides a useful tip sheet about how to have these conversations.
