How can we teach and reinforce the idea of a digital footprint (creating a Facebook account) and a digital fingerprint (paying for a hot chocolate at Starbucks with the Starbucks Android application)? Could browsers and phones remind students of the information they are sharing online? How can a teacher infuse content about online privacy in existing projects in which students create digital artifacts?
I am stewing on a few ideas for Ideate, but wanted to share to resources: bitsbook.com and teachingprivacy.org. Both are excellent resources for teachers (and anyone that is interested about our online identities).
Some initial ideas:
- Student journal to observe online activity
- Chrome extension to remind students of the tradeoff(s) of using a particular site or web application.
- Maybe a daily tip and trick?
