College Bound

What is a digital footprint and how is it related to college admissions? Start out by defining and discussing the term, supporting the conversation with a video about what a positive digital footprint looks like. Next, invite small groups to role play and pretend they are college admissions panels choosing between two high school seniors. Meet as a class to discuss their choices and online information in general. All necessary materials are provided for this well-sequenced plan.
