Teaching children about digital footprints

Kathleen Morris, a progressive year 4 teacher at Leopold Primary School in Victoria has written an excellent blog post on teaching children about digital footprints. Kathleen explains:

So what do students need to know about digital footprints?

  • the internet is a public space with a large audience
  • digital footprints can be searched or shared
  • once online, things can be there forever
  • you should always think before you post online
  • you should keep certain personal details private
  • individuals can take control of their digital footprints
  • digital footprints can be helpful or harmful to reputations

Although aimed at a primary level, there is much for parents and students to learn here.
