Digital Citizenship Week Daily Tip #2

Welcome back to our series celebrating Digital Citizenship week in Round Rock ISD. Today’s reminder focuses on our digital footprints.

The below graphic and statement is being shared with students throughout the district today:

If you post a picture or write a comment online, people you may not know could have access to it. Once it is posted online, it does not go away. Protect your reputation on social networks. Everything you do or post online leaves a trail. This is called your digital footprint.

There is also an excellent point about the impact our posts have on others when we choose to tag them in a photo with or without their consent.

Digital citizenship is about intentionality and big-picture thinking. We need to make sure these tools are working for us rather than the other way around. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s tip to learn more about building positive relationships online.
