Transcript of Digital Identities and Digital Security

Digital Footprint
All the information people are sharing with others on the Internet makes up their digital footprint (Jutt, 2009). As people share more personal information and become more “transparent” (TEDx Talks, 2013) on the Internet, they need to be conscious about how others might use their personal data (Howell, 2014b).
“Every time you log on to a website you leave a mark”
(Jutt, 2009).
Teachers and parents are becoming increasingly concerned about cyberbullying. Due to modern technological advances, it has become possible for students to bully others anonymously, at any place and any time. It is evident that teachers should teach their students the safe practices of online behaviour and strategies to avoid being exposed to cyberbullying (Howell, 2014b).
Digital Identities
People’s digital identities are made up of all the information they share about themselves on the Internet. This information includes personal details, sent emails, messages and images shared on social media and many more.
A growing number of people have multiple digital identities to protect their online privacy. They share their personal digital identities with friends and family, while their public digital identities can be seen by a wider public. (Howell, 2014a). A digital identity can also be fabricated, for example, when people want to express themselves on the Internet anonymously.
Digital Identities and Digital Security
Tranberg (TEDx Talks, 2013) explains how people’s digital footprints can have an enormous impact on all aspects of their lives, whether it is their professional careers or personal lives. In the modern digital world where a single message on Twitter or a Facebook post can lead to damaged personal relationships or losing a job, it is crucial that people learn to modify their digital identities to protect themselves.
It is highly important for teachers to make sure the way they present themselves in the digital world is respectable and a reflection of how they want their students, parents and colleagues to view them.
Digital Security
In the modern digital world, there are a number of negative aspects that are associated with the term “digital security”, such as identity theft, cyberbullying, scamming and hacking digital information (Howell, 2014b).
