Hi Students, My name is Jack III and my grandfather was the Jack I who traded beans for a cow and ended up with a goose that lays golden eggs. Our family has been living happily ever after for years; however, I recently read on the Internet that the giant is back. Apparently, giants live for a very long time! For those of you not familiar with the story of my famous family, here goes. My grandfather, Jack I, was supposed to sell the cow to make money to feed his family. He met a guy who convinced him to trade his cow for some magic beans. His mom, my great grandmother, was not very happy because she didnt Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint believe in magic beans.www.EconEdLink.org She said, The cost of your 3

Handout 1: Jacks Letter Part 1(continued) She threw the beans out of the window and made Grandpa Jack clean his room. The next morning, when Jack I looked out the window, he saw a giant beanstalk. You see, in fairy-tale land, magic happens. After he climbed to the top of the beanstalk, he saw a beautiful giant castle. Then he went inside. Obviously he had never heard the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Walking into a strange familys house and messing with their stuff is never a good idea.

Handout 1: Jacks Letter Part 2 You know the drill, giant arrived, giant fell asleep, and Grandpa Jack made the decision to take the hen that lays the golden eggs. The giant woke and shouted, Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum. Grandpa Jack ran toward the beanstalk and raced down as fast as his little legs would carry him. The giant followed and when Grandpa Jack cut down the beanstalk, the giant crashed to the ground and was never heard of again at least not by Grandpa. But I recently found out that the giant is still alive! I saw postings on the Internet! Apparently giants live for a very long time. So I have a problem. I dont want the giant to find Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint

Someone told me that my online digital footprint might lead the giant right to my house if Im not careful. I spend a lot of time online. I like to use the Internet and play games with friends. My mom also likes to share photos. Please help us make informed decisions about the things I post online so we dont lead the giant right to my house! Sincerely, Jack III

7 Handout 3a: Article on Digital Footprints and Photo Sharing (Lexile 750) Taking cute and funny pictures isnt new. However, the digital world changes how photos are shared. When you post a photo, you might be sharing private information. And that can be a problem because most children have some kind of digital footprint. A digital footprint is like a trail of everything you do online. A trail is created when you upload content, surf websites, or play on apps. In fact, your digital footprint may have started before you even posted anything! Parents enjoy sharing cute photos of your young life. This can be a problem for you when the photos are

embarrassing. But that isnt the only problem. Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint www.EconEdLink.org 8 Handout 3a: Article on Digital Footprints and Photo Sharing (continued) Did you know that your location might be shared when you post a photo? For example, if you take a photo at a baseball game, the photo is tagged to share the location. This is called geotagging. Smart phones automatically add tags to photos. You have to turn it off in settings. This is very important for online safety. What would happen if Little Red Riding Hood posted selfies with geotags?

Remember, posting photos can affect your digital footprint. Digital footprints can become real footprints when someone can track you and your location. Ask your parents to help you research photo sharing. Remember to think before you share! Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint www.EconEdLink.org 9 Handout 3b Part 1: Article on Digital Footprints and Photo Sharing (Lexile 900) Have you or your parents ever posted a photo to social media? Taking cute and funny pictures isnt new. However, the digital world changes how photos are shared. Did you know when you post a photo other people know where you are? And that can be a problem

because most children have some kind of digital footprint. According to Common Sense Media, a digital footprint is a record of everything you do online. You leave a trail of footprints when you use social media, surf websites, answer quizzes, or sign into apps and games. In fact, your digital footprint may have started before you even posted anything! A recent survey found that over 90% of parents have posted about children by the time they were two! Parents enjoy sharing cute photos of your young life. This can be a problem for you when the photos are embarrassing. But that isnt the only problem. Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint www.EconEdLink.org 10 Handout 3b Part 1: Article on Digital

Footprints and Photo Sharing (continued) Did you know that when you post images on social media, you give companies permission to use your photos? For example, when you join photo-sharing apps, you give permission to share and use your content. The only solution is to read the policy of social media accounts before you post. Do you want people to be able to use your photos? A bigger problem can happen due geotagging. What is geotagging? Common Sense Media defines geotagging as a feature that allows you to add locations to uploaded content. For example, when you take a photo at a baseball game, the photo can be geotagged to share your location. Most smartphones are equipped with location-based services. Geotagging automatically is attached to photos taken by smartphone cameras. Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint www.EconEdLink.org

11 Handout 3b Part 2: Article on Digital Footprints and Photo Sharing (continued) Geotagging can impact your digital footprint by leaving a realworld location trail. For example, what would happen if Little Red Riding Hood posted selfies with geotags to her social media account? So what can you do if you dont want someone to know your location? You can search online to find out how to disable geotagging on your smartphone. You can also teach your parents and guardians. Remember, posting photos creates a digital footprint. For example, what would happen if Little Red Riding Hood posted selfies? Those photos would include a geotag with location and time. This could alert the wolf to where Little Red Riding Hood was going! Photos can affect your digital footprint. However, there are ways you can protect your privacy. Dont post to social media

unless you know how they can use your images. Ask friends and family for permission before they post images of you. Finally, Jack and the Giant Digital Footprint make sure that you disable geotagging when you dont want to 12 www.EconEdLink.org Sources for Readings on Digital Footprints and Photo Sharing Sources: Visualizations to Teach about Mobile Online Privacy http ://mediasmarts.ca/sites/mediasmarts/files/games/secure-comics/publications/PT 2014_PosterAbstract.pdf
