Digital Footprints

Did you know digital footprints are all the tools we use online? Mine are ABCya, Kidblog, Blogger, Wikispaces, Instagram and all the apps on the iPods. -Cole

Today we looked at Ms. Clarke's digital footprint by searching her name on Google. Then she searched me, Carter, Jackson, Gavin, Karys, and Dylan R. We found that I was on the internet for skating, Carter was on the front page of a magazine for fishing, Jackson was in a catalog, Karys was on 200 Awesome Days, and Dylan R and Gavin were on for hockey. -Cali

Don't put bad stuff on the internet because if you do, if you are trying to get a job, the boss is going to look up your name and see what you posted. When you are little, don 't put your last name if you're writing a blog. -Maddy

Don't put personal information online. Post appropriate pictures. Be kind to other people. Don't post any pictures of other people if they don't want. -Dylan R

Tell the truth when you post stuff. -Dylan W

Today we had an amazing conversation about the different things that we do on-line from the apps we use to blogging to Instagram to Google. The kids of Room 9 know a lot about the tools they use, the ways they share their learning, and how to connect with others in a safe and responsible way.

On April 16 & 17 I will be away from our classroom attending and presenting at the Manitoba Teachers Society Conference on Technology called "Awakening Possibilities". On Wednesday evening I will be doing an IGNITE talk called "Little Feet, Big Footprints: Builing a positive digital footprint with young children". (Ignite talks are 5 minute presentations where the presenter gets 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds). Today the Kids of Room 9 helped me to get my thoughts together for the presentation and to take some pictures for my slides. Here are a couple of screen shots from my presentation... These are some of the "rules" we follow when posting things online together in order to create a positive digital footprint. -Ms. Clarke

Room 9 you are so smart! You have a great teacher that certainly has a technology talent and we are all so lucky that we benefit from it! Those lessons sure work well for me too, thank you for sharing!

Keep up the thoughtful footprints!
