I like using current event articles that provide examples of digital citizenship issues that were largely ignored and resulted in unfavorable consequences for someone. We then move on to discussion of their own digital footprints and how what they post today or “like” today can reflect on them 4 years from now.
We live in a time where ‘fake news’ is everywhere. This provides an excellent platform for learning about social media and its effects. I plan on riding this wave that was created on a national scale. Besides, every student has been involved in a rumor of some type. Student experience should drive this topic.
