Digital Footprint

Resources for Directed Study beginning October 19th.

Last month, you spent time in directed study talking about digital footprint. Now, we'd like to take it a step further! We are hosting a social media challenge for both students and teachers!

What Should We Post About?

  • Upcoming school events
  • School spirit
  • What students are learning in class
  • Anything that is positive and not oversharing
  • Use other hashtag ideas:


#CelebrateMonday = Post about something you're celebrating or excited about
#tbt = Throwback Thursday, Post some kind of flashback/memory
#FlyHighFriday = Post something awesome/positive to finish the week

Need More Posting Ideas?

Additional Information & Resources

What is a Digital Footprint?

On the Internet a digital footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or "footprints" that people leave online. This is information transmitted online, such as forum registration, e-mails and attachments, uploading videos or digital images, social media posts, and any other form of transmission of information — all of which leaves traces of personal information about yourself available to others online.


You may not realize this, but each time you log on to the Internet, use your cell phone, or do anything digitally you are leaving a digital trail.

Reflection Questions

  1. What are examples of people sharing in a rewarding way?
  2. What things can you do to minimize oversharing?
  3. How can you create your own positive digital footprint.
