Title: Computer Science Fundamentals Unit 3 Course B Lesson 3: Your Digital Footprint (2018)
URL: https://curriculum.code.org/csf-18/courseb/3/
Description:

In collaboration with Common Sense Education - Website, this lesson helps students learn about the similarities of staying safe in the real world and when visiting websites. Students will also learn that the information they put online leaves a digital footprint or “trail.” This trail can be big or small, helpful or hurtful, depending on how they manage it.

Common Sense Education has created this lesson to teach kids the importance of understanding the permanence of something posted on the internet. By relating footprints on a map to what a student might post online, students will make important connections between being tracked by a physical footprint on a path and being tracked based on information posted online.

Students will be able to:
- Understand that being safe when they visit websites is similar to staying safe in real life.
- Learn to recognize websites that are safe for them to visit.
- Recognize if they should ask an adult they trust before they visit a particular website.
- Explore what information is appropriate to be put online.
