A digital footprint is a trail of data you create while using the Internet. It includes the websites you visit, emails you send, and information you submit to online services. A passive digital footprint is a data trail you unintentionally leave online. Websites that install cookies on your devices, apps and websites that use your geolocation, and social media that uses your likes, shares and comments to profile you are examples of a passive digital footprint.
FCS provides instruction for students in grades 2-12 about Digital Footprints and online responsibility. Students learn about the longevity of life online and how to maintain a positive digital footprint.
