Digital Citizenship


Digital Footprint & Reputation

There are a lot of consequences of posting inappropriate or negative comments online. First once you post a comment about someone or something it will never be erased, it will always be on the internet. IF you think you deleted it you didn't, it will always be there. Also, saying rude and inappropriate things online is really bad because colleges look at what you put on the internet and they could see that and not accept you in their college. Also, saying rude stuff can hurt other people so just keep it to yourself.

What is a Digital Footprint?

Your digital footprint is your online reputation. Your footprint can be changed by a lot of different things that are posted on the internet. The information posted on the internet can be posted by you, or posted by other people about you. Once something is posted online, it is always going to be part of your digital footprint.

Self-Image & Identity

Digital media plays a good role in a everyday high school student. There are an ample amount of websites you can go to that can help you on homework or to study for tests. Also you can enjoy yourself or if you have extra time you can go on games, fun websites, chatrooms, or social media. But those websites can be a bad thing. People can act really different on social media and chatrooms. They can say they are a different person or a different age. People on the internet can distort their identity and can really tough online but in person can be different. So Digital media plays a big role in high schoolers in a good way and bad way.
