DIGITAL FOOTPRINT


Getting in touch with your Digital Footprint
Do you know what your digital footprint says about you? The goal of this assignment is to help you find out. As you investigate what your digital footprint says about you, consider the following questions:

  • Is this the message you want to convey about yourself?
  • Is this how I want other to see/know/discover me?
  • What can I do to take more control of how the world gets to know me?
For this activity, you will read the following article.

What Does Your Digital Footprint Say About You? by David Bohl.
Create a new blog post titled ‘Digital Footprint’ and answer the following questions:

  1. What is a digital footprint?
  2. What are some ways to negatively and positively impact your digital footprint?
  3. What did you discover when you Googled yourself? List some of the Google results you found. Was there anything that surprised you?
Are you ready??? Let’s Begin:

Here’s how.
  1. __**Google**__ yourself.
    You can start in the obvious way and just Google yourself by typing your name into Google’s search box in whatever way(s) someone doing a search about you might i.e. John Smith, teacher. Take a look at what you see. You may need to be specific in your search. For example, if I were to Google myself, I would put my name in quotes, like this “Alan Block"

EXCEL


As part of the Information Processing 10 curriculum, you must become proficient with Microsoft Word. We will briefly review the basics of Word, then focus on some more advanced features.


Go to the following link Microsoft Excel 2013. You will complete Lessons #4-23. For each lesson: watch the video (if applicable), read the information, and complete the lesson’s Challenge! (if applicable). You may need to download the Practice Document for that lesson in order to complete the Challenge!


Lessons 4-6 do not need to be uploaded to your wiki. However, it is important that you complete these lessons as they do cover some important material (ie. exporting files to PDF). Starting with Lesson 7, the remainder will need to be uploaded. Except for Lesson 12, as it is about printing. So it will also not be uploaded to your wiki.

Each Challenge must be saved and uploaded to your wiki. Make sure there is some difference between your MS Word lessons and the MS Excel lessons (name, location on blog, etc.).
