These are my notes from Ginger Lumen’s presentation “Students as Self-Advocates: Why/How Learners Should Craft Their Own Digital Footprints” at PodStock09. This is the wiki link for the presentation: http://digicitizen.wikispaces.com
- Ginger is presenting this today with her students, I am audio recording for later podcast and also Ustream webcasting/archiving. Here’s the archive – this is just partial, I had some connectivity problems at the end.Ginger is GingerTPLC on Plurk (her preferred micro-blogging tool) and Twitter

8 Tools to Track Your Footprints on the Web by Lidija Davis (Feb 2009)

Student perspectives, starting with Colby

Colby’s digital footprint

THIS IS REALLY FANTASTIC STUFF! GREAT WORK COLBY! AND THANKS FOR SHARING THIS!

I began crafting my digital footprint with respect to 3D design and modeling
- we were given $10K by ESSDACK and our school district to redesign our school
- our team won the contest
- used Google Sketchup to design with the free version
- some photo-realistic rendering (is a plug-in which allows you to get a real sense of what it looks like, plug-in is called “podium”)
- this room WILL look like this when it is done
- I just imported the table, chairs and TV, designed everything else

When I was looking for furniture, I noticed it wasn’t there, so I chose to create furniture that I could share back to the community
- designed an IDEA VEJMON coffee table

This is something that is a passion of his, Ginger did not teach him to do this

So this is one way I’m crafting my digital footprint

Now hearing from Eric, another student
- Eric’s digital footprint example

I AM THINKING I NEED TO FIND A TIME FOR ALEXANDER AND I TO PRACTICE OUR SESSION ON OUR FAMILY LEARNING BLOG PRIOR TO NECC. MAYBE AT

Who am I? Who do I want to be? Who should I be?

In my case, I need my school to know that we are doing has a public impact on the school’s image

    Don’t forget to add LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google Profile in your own digital footprints. Personal branding has come a long way already. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to register indiscriminately at every social networking site out there. Be sure you have a plan and a goal for your digital footprint in order to manage them successfully.
