Week 1 A place to stand Day: 1

Activity 3: Ice, Ice Baby [10 points]
Antarctica is the world’s coldest continent. Even though it is made up of ice, it is also the driest continent in the world. In fact, it hasn’t rained there for nearly 2 million years! It is home to many animals such as whales, seals, birds, and fish. There are no permanent human residents (people who live there all the time) in Antarctica, however scientists do visit and stay in Antarctica for a while to study it.

This year the airline, Air New Zealand, filmed their safety video in Antarctica. They used some fabulous actors from Hornby Primary School in Christchurch. Just like on aeroplanes, we also need to keep safe and be smart online. We need to think about the type of information we are sharing online, who we are sharing information with, and how to have a positive digital footprint.

On your blog, make a copy of this footprint and, inside the footprint, explain how you create a positive, digital footprint. What do you do to stay smart online?.

  1. Kia ora Mathew,
    I like the key points you used to define a safe and positive footprint. I think the permission one is really important, specially when we use someone else ideas or pictures it's very important to check if it's OK to use it and acknowledge their work by using a clear reference. Furthermore, the other key point that you made is regarding to sharing of personal information, everything that we publish is open to potential hackers so it's vital that we are conscious of the risk when publishing anything online. For the future, I want you to try review your work before publish so you make sure that your message is clear and is not big spelling mistakes. Well done on completing another task!
    Kia kaha,
