What is digital footprint ?
  • A digital footprint is the collection of all the traces you leave in electronic environments as you use or move through them. Some is content you actively volunteer—like your Facebook profile. Other material is passive—the cookies a site stores in your browser, the content your district collects about your use of their equipment, etc. All this data can be aggregated to build a profile of you and your behavior http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2013/04/a-great-guide-on-teaching-students.html
