About The Webinar

The Impact of a Digital Footprint: Supporting Young People to Understand the Legacy of Online Behaviour | Secondary

This webinar will provide headteachers, curriculum leads, subject leads and teaching staff with practical advice and guidance on supporting children to understand the potential impact and longevity of their conduct and decision making when online, and the digital traces it leaves behind.

The media is increasingly highlighting notable examples of figures in the public eye being required to address comments they made online years earlier. They are a powerful demonstration that once something is released onto the internet, it can resurface at any time – with serious consequences. Now that employers and higher education providers routinely evaluate a candidate’s ‘digital footprint’, errors of judgement online can have an enduring legacy for a young person’s prospects.

In this webinar Andrew Davis, a social media expert with 20+ years’ experience working with organisations to improve their digital footprint, examines the visibility and durability of a person’s online persona, the potential risks when posting anything online, and the various benefits of a young person maintaining an online identity that accentuates the best aspects of their real-world self.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how online communication differs from interpersonal: reduced linguistic and paralinguistic features, stifled nuances of meaning and lack of non-verbal cues, etc.

  • Appreciating that the current generation are growing up – with all the mistakes and missteps that entails – in an era when anything can be recorded and shared digitally

  • Identifying the potential risks (current and future) relating to young people posting online – and the additional considerations when that content can be viewed universally

  • Recognising how children and young people can frequently overlook the possible consequences of what they post online

  • Understanding age-appropriate ways of helping young people to grasp how online actions can dramatically affect their life and the lives of others
