Overview:

Social media can be a place to connect, learn, and, most of all, share. But how much do kids know about what they're sharing -- and not just about themselves but each other? Help students think critically about their digital footprints on social media.

Students will be able to:
  • Identify reasons for using social media and the challenges that often come along with it.
  • Reflect on the responsibilities they have that are related to digital footprints -- both their own and others' -- when they're using social media.
  • Identify ways to make the most of social media while still caring for the digital footprints of themselves and others.
