Digital Footprints, Bread Crumbs or Tattoos?

Published on

An outline educational presentation concerning the theme of online identities / e-safety / safer social networking and use of the internet.

Context: this presentation comprises some but not all of the slides used in a continually evolving assembly presentation (delivered first in 2007 and updated / presented every year up until 2012). Hence there are references to articles that are now several years old – I actually think it may be a good thing to realise that this ‘new’ issue has become quite a long established issue.

It is designed to get students thinking about safer social networking and use of the Internet in general, but note that many of the original slides are not included here for various reasons.

It might be useful to others as a starting point for a presentation for assemblies / lessons on this theme. It is comprised of other people’s work and ideas which I have credited where possible. In the same spirit of sharing as those whose work I’ve borrowed, this presentation by James Penstone is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 UK: England & Wales License.

  21. 21. September 18, 2008 Admissions Officers Peek at Applicants' Facebook Profiles College seniors know that prospective employers check their Facebook and MySpace pages; now high-school seniors have evidence that college admissions officers browse them as well. One in 10 admissions officers has looked at an applicant’s social-networking profile, according to a report released today by the test-prep company Kaplan Inc. Of those who peeked, 38 percent said what they saw had a negative effect on their evaluation of the student. Fewer — a quarter — said the effect was positive. http://chronicle.com/news/article/5179/admis sions-officers-peek-at-applicants-facebookprofiles

  37. 37. There is no true anonymity online and the Internet never forgets. … once information is online you have lost your ability to control it. … Be aware that someone can download it, repost it and you’ll have lost the ability to control it’s distribution. http://internetducttape.com/2006/10/25/web -anonymity-103-online-privacy/
  38. 38. We are putting more of our lives online with the “social networking” Web 2.0 phenomenon. It is becoming easier to find information about a person. People are building extensive databases about themselves without thinking about the long-term consequences. The Internet is forever; once something is online it is cached and archived. http://internetducttape.com/2006/10/20/web -anonymity-102-a-case-study/
  39. 39. Image: Some rights reserved by Dave Makes A Very Strong Recommendation: Think very carefully about what stuff from your lives you want to be online, bearing in mind it could be there for a very long time and out of your control.
