The ‘DigiKnow: Your Digital Tattoo’ course aims to increase students’ awareness of their ‘digital tattoo’, or ‘digital footprint’ (i.e. the data left behind when they use digital services online). The course reveals how some employers use social media profiles as part of their vetting process when employing new members of staff. It also presents the benefits and risks involved in making personal information public online, and finally the course shows students how to track the data that is available about them online. This ‘mini’ course is accessible from the ‘My home’ page in Moodle and can either be completed by students in their own time or it can form part of a face-to-face session. For more information, please contact Learning Technology Support (lts@glos.ac.uk).
