Tiger Tech: Digital YOU

Tech Tools, tips, how-tos and resources for High School.

Why?

What will "future" you think of the choices that "now" you has made with technology? 

You know as well as anyone that what happens online stays online... potentially forever. Building a positive digital footprint means taking ownership of your online identity, being positive in your interactions and avoiding negative behaviours. 

University Challenge

Mythbusting: Do universities really search your social media? 

Universities need to protect their own reputations and provide a safe space for all to learn. You should expect that your online profile will be searched.

When digital citizenship goes wrong, the impacts can be wider - and more serious - than we expect. 

Be A Good Friend!

T.H.I.N.K. before your post (source):

You are also responsible for protecting the digital footprint of your peers. 

  1. Don't post photos or videos without their clear permission. 
  2. Don't tag them in anything without their clear permission. 
  3. Don't post anything potentially harmful or embarrassing using their name or image

In the digital world, just as the real, treat others better than you would like to be treated yourself.

It is your responsibility to be informed, principled and behave accordingly. Treat others as you expect to be treated yourself. Never post without permission. 

Changemaker: Trisha Prabhu

Trisha Prabhu is a true inspiration: she created the ReThinkWords App as a teenager in an effort to "prevent cyberbullying before it causes harm." Check our her TED talk below and install the app - she got it fully funded on Shark Tank, has been to White House and is now at Harvard. 

Digital You

Does "online me" reflect "real me"? 

Google yourself. What does your digital footprint say about you?

What do your social media profiles and interactions say about you

What do your posts online say about you

What do the things you have been tagged in say about you

Are you happy with this footprint?

Would potential employers, universities (or your relatives) be happy with this footprint?
