    Welcome to Digital Footprints!

    Digital Footprints and Self Awareness is about navigating ourselves responsibly and safely in a digital world.  In our class we will reflect on the level of self awareness and skills that are important for us to  utilize so that we are  positive citizens in our real world.  those reflective lessons  will be applied to help us understand and figure out how we can be equally as positive members of the global community,  which we  participate in online.  Digital responsibility, etiquette, laws, and and understanding of the impacts that social media have on us as individuals as well as society will be addressed through a variety of activities so that we can begin to design and build our own digital footprints that will be lasting and act as  products that reflect our individual personalities in a positive light.
