Online Presence and Digital Footprint

As the summer draws closer, thoughts of the teaching year ahead are ever-present; the excitement of a fresh start, a new beginning and also a continued journey.

Using my new favourite video creation tool, Vidra, I have created a video which introduces my learners to the idea of their digital footprint but also explores the importance of creating a positive online presence. We’ll be using new tools and approaches to invest some time in the development of their ‘professional portfolio’; they’ll be A2 learners: the world and all its joys and challenges awaits. They have begun to get excited about the possibilities this holds, but more of that later.

Let me know what you think of the video and what you do with your learners in this area.

My writing commitment: I’m learning to honour my thoughts. I’m learning that my words can be shared before I’ve connected all the dots or learned everything there is to know. My writing can be a snapshot of a single moment in continually-evolving time.
