Digital Identity – Reputation


Your reputation is the opinion others have about you based on your online behavior(s). The actions you take online can positively or negatively affect your reputation.

Essential Questions

  • Before you leave comments on photos, videos, or through social media, do you ever consider how those comments may sound to other people and may shape your reputation?
  • Are there ways to repair a damaged online reputation?

Implementation Suggestions and Strategies for Schools

  1.  Poll your class and see how many have taken steps to protect their reputation online like the teens in this research study.
  2. Discuss or journal about various online situations that could potentially hurt others or damage students’ future and the action they can take to prevent this from happening.
