Your Digital Footprint
We all have a digital footprint, as do our schools and organizations. “Googling” ourselves makes this apparent whether we have had any say in it or not. As individuals and as organizations, what can we do to actually shape this footprint? With open sharing of our learning, a digital footprint can easily be developed for either an individual, school, or organization. This is not about branding as much as it is about modeling for our students that we are learners along with them.
