  • It is a map of who we are… at least as far as how people we interact with online will see us But it also helps us explore and learn…
  • eSafety is about avoiding the monsters. There are different types of monster about – there are the mire-dwelling goblins of despair who drag us down when we are struggling to learn, for instance Teachers, librarians and mentors can help guide us Google, like a sat-nav can sometimes lead us to the wrong place – it takes skill to be able to get the best results from it
  • Personal learning networks help support our learning - the key to building and ‘exploiting’ our PLNs is our Digital Identity - need to engage with people - ask questions, provide your own insights and contribute to other people’s learning through discourse
  • Life (and education) can have many twists and turns Your Digital Identity can have many facets – different reflections of you that you can’t always be aware of - other people can help you discover how you look to others online - even your choice of ‘avatar’ can have an impact on how others view you online.
  • OK, thanks Jerome Bruner, for the term. Scaffolding – the educational way of exploiting Zygotsky’s concept of the Zone of Proximal Development PLN provide scaffolding for the self-learner This Is Me produces learning materials, and sessions like this, to help people explore ideas about their Digital Identity and how it can help them
  • Google – or any other search – can help you get a quick idea of how other people might see you online If you contribute to forums or other websites, take a look at them too – or better, get a Critical Friend to have a look and tell you what they like and don’t like about your DI. How employable do you look? Do you engage with others in a constructive way? Etc. Key words How do you look to others if you only have a ‘plain, clean, profile’ – why do employers like to see information about your hobbies and pastimes on CVs?
