Digital Footprint- A trail of data you leave when using the internet.

Materials:

Content Objective:

To analyze how media influences and shapes our online communication and online presence.

Language Objective:

Write responses about our own online presence.

Before beginning:

Place students in groups of 3-4.

*This lesson is most effective in two 50 minute class periods.  

Pre assessment/ Background knowledge:

Share slide.

One of the intentions of this lesson is to remind you that all of your online interactions are building data on who you are.  This is called a Digital Footprint.

Fill out Digital Footprint True/ False worksheet.

Put aside for end of lesson.

Activity:

What is an online presence?

The first activity will have students engaging with individuals who intentionally have a large online presence.  First, they’ll look for context clues to group images with text, then they’ll decide what type of communication is being used, and if it’s an effective way to communicate.

Activity #1

  1. Group images, texts and information together, using either background knowledge or context clues.
  2. Fill out the graphic organizer to assist in analyzing what you know and how you know it.

(Potential end of Day 1.  Review Activity #2 for day 2, then proceed to Activity #3 and Check for Understanding.)

Activity #2

  1. Look at your own online presence using matrix. Leave name off.
  2. Teacher collects matrices.  Pass them out to different students.  Have students fill out GO for matrix.
  3. Pair matrix and GO with original student. ON matrix, answer the questions: How accurate is the information? Does this seem like a version of you?

Scaffolds:

Have a few sorts, Graphic Organizers, and Matrices filled out/ created for examples.

Check for Understanding:

Review Digital Footprint slide.

Does your online presence accurately depict who you are?  Write or share with a partner an instance where your online presence either accurately represents you, or doesn’t.  How is it accurate?  What is it lacking?
