Anne Collier, Tim Lordan, Sue Sheburne, and Dan Kent co-host a Google Education On Air program focusing on online reputation.
This Google Education On Air provides practical and actionable strategies to students enhance their online reputation as they seek scholarships, employment, and admission to competitive colleges. We’ll also discuss today’s online reputation landscape and what’s in store for the future. What are best practice examples of engaging students when talking about online reputation and where are the most useful resources? Tune in, join the discussion, and ask your students’ toughest online reputation questions.
Student created videos to be used in the Net Reputation curriculum
A Love That Was Lost (Based upon a real story that actually happened to the editor of this video, a guy doesn’t think before he clicks and then a few days later, realized he really had feelings for the gal that was the subject of his comments. Sadly for this guy as is the case in the video, there was no way to undo the texts or the resulting bad feelings. This should lead to a discussion about thinking before we click…and how saying something in the real world versus texting or posting something on line can have different results.)
A Digital Heartbreak (Because even an innocent picture can be taken out of context and misunderstood, it’s smart to keep some personal (digital) information private. This was also based upon a real story – they eventually got back together but this really stressed their relationship.)
How to Lose Tomorrow’s Job (When you apply for a job, most employers Google job applicants checking for posts and pictures to help give them a perspective of the applicant. Inappropriate comments, cyberbullying, comments about excessive drinking, drugs, or illegal activities may suggest to the employer that this is who you really are and what you do in real life. It’s hard enough to get a great job – don’t let a negative digital footprint work against you!)
