Have you ever stopped to think about your future self when you decide what information should be shared online? Or, if a potential employer completed a Google search of you, what would they find? As we navigate around the digital world, we leave a footprint of our activity all the time: accessing social media, when you share images and messages online, leave a comment on a website are all examples of the digital identity you create – perhaps, as some may view it, an online extension of the real you.
‘My Digital Footprint’ focuses on the different dimensions of a digital footprint by providing useful resources on developing an effective online presence using blogs, creating networking opportunities using LinkedIn and using social media and mobile apps. Once you have watched the engaging videos, completed the activities and assessments, you will be better equipped to tackle the digital world, whether that’s using social media or creating a more effective and responsible presence online.
