Reflecting on Digital Identity and Footprints! #EdtechMissions

Our learners become citizens of the digital world as toddlers or younger. They create digital avatars and profiles as part of their membership to online games or online communities.

These profiles and memberships come with responsibilities, which are often outlined in small print in the Terms of Service few read or consider.
