Creating an Active Digital Footprint

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Julie Heintz (Teacher (K-12)), Dec 08, 2011

I thought the show was very informative.  It could be used as a presentation with some interaction of students.  I liked that it gave some data about how employers and colleges look at social media to see what prospective students/employees do in their free time.  It applied the social media outlets that students use on a daily basis to real life scenarios, and hopefully that would motivate students to learn how their choices about what information they share on the internet impact their futures.  The show is an example of an UDL because it created a new way for students to interact with the information, and it allowed students to navigate through the show at their own pace.  It gave direct feedback with questions, so students would know immediately if they had understood a concept or not.

Technical Remarks:

The last page I saw said to click on scenarios to see how creating an active footprint would work.  These did not work for me; I'm not sure if it's because I'm on a Mac or not.  This show would be great to use with a smartboard or mimeo board because students could come up and interact with the presentation.
