Robyn Treyvaud shared the following YouTube video, “Digital Dossier,” with me today at the 21st Century Learning @ Hong Kong Conference. The 4.5 minute video is a thought-provoking exploration of the “digital footprints” we leave behind along with others as we share online. This video can be a good conversation starter with students as well as adults about issues related to online safety, digital citizenship, privacy, etc.

Robyn is the author and owner of the website CyberSafeWorld, and hails from Australia. She will share the workshops “The Natives are Getting Restless: Growing Up and Learning in a Web 2.0 World” Friday and “Opportunities & outcomes of students as partners in responding to cyber issues” on Saturday here in Hong Kong. Robyn is very focused on helping dispel myths regarding Internet dangers, and encouraging a focus on “digital citizenship” rather than simply “Internet safety” in our schools. I’m eager to learn more from her this week!

One Response to Digital Footprints – Digital Dossier

  1. Wow. Thank you for sharing this video. I plan on sharing it with family and consumer sciences teachers through my blog. I think the way the video was put together will appeal to our teachers in ways that the topic of “digital citizenship” may not if presented in other forms.
