Our two grade two classes got their first lesson about online footprints and how we leave them. They learned how to make sure that the footprints they are leaving online are the good kind!
I made sure to highlight a few other ways we can leave our footprints online that were not touched on in the video;
- Comments left on websites (ex. youtube), video games, and blogs.
- Our search history
- Posting information that is intentionally not true
- Posting embarrassing photos or videos of ourselves or others
We played a game where two characters – Ellie the Elephant and Mervin the Mouse left their online footprints all over the library. Students had to find these card footprints and decide which footprints were and were not the right kind to leave online. We all had lots of fun with this lesson!
