Once in a while something appears on my screen that is more than a couple of years old, in this care from 2011, but it’s still current and timely eight years later.
This Digital Footprint information and Exploration Site was created by two graduate students, Sarah Bean and Abbi Brenoel, in The Graduate School of Education and Human Development at George Washington University in Washington, DC.
Their website helps users examine their digital footprint profile from a variety of vantage points. Moreover, individuals who use the site can learn just how easy it is to participate in normal, everyday digital activities that multiply, many times over, those digital footprints.
Each user can peruse digital footprint statistics and then use the website tools to explore, measure, and assess his or her personal profile. There’s even a poll to take, so check it out.
As a bonus, indiviuals who take time to use the site may find that they have become curators of their digital footprints — a critical skill in a digitally dense 21st Century world.
