Juan Enriquez: Your online life, permanent as a tattoo | Video on TED.com

What if Andy Warhol had it wrong, and instead of being famous for 15 minutes, we’re only anonymous for that long? In this short talk, Juan Enriquez looks at the surprisingly permanent effects of digital sharing on our personal privacy.

Your reputation is now threatened by immortality. How do you want to be remembered? 

Dennis T OConnor's comment, May 2, 2013 11:01 AM
What do you think of the speaker's recommendation that we don't look to deeply into the past of those we love? Is the Electronic Tatoo a curse we all have to live with beyond forever? Or is awareness of our permanent online footprint enough to flip the technology and allow us to build an electronic reputation to be proud of?
Homeschool FL's curator insight, May 3, 2013 6:59 AM

Our children are growing up in a digital world that is completely foreign to how we grew up. We didn't have the Internet as a ubiquitous prescence in our lives. To make things worse, the landscape keeps changing on us, the parents, and the children. It is now, more than ever, crucial to teach our children how to be more than "street smart."

 

It used to be that having street smarts was helpful, because that way you could protect yourself from being taken advantage of. It carries an element of shrewdness, for one's own protection this is a good thing. Nowadays we need to apply that online.

This video is short, but it makes a powerful illustration. Juan Enriquez likens our online activity to an electronic tattoo, virtually permanent. Something we adults need to learn also, but moreover our children, as they grow up in the Internet jungle. And it is a jungle.

This story has been rattling around in my memory closet for years. My work on values congruency with Annette Schleming help bring this out. I'm proud to share this with you all. 

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, January 29, 2013 4:46 PM

Powerful testimony about value congruency and a journey well traveled. Dennis hits it right we he states "If you find congruency, stay put. If not; change the culture of your workplace, or change your work place." Sage advice. 

 

Knowing your core values, and having the skill to assess the practiced values in your work environment, will result in a more significant and possitive difference in work attitudens and performance.

 

Thanks for your openness and honesty Dennis!

Dennis T OConnor's insight:


This site is one way to create an online reputation trail.  I've been a member for about a month. I'm not yet sure I trust Trust Cloud to be around a year from now.  However the basic concept is solid.


It's good to learn a bit more about how the scores are determined.  (Note, Trustcloud doesn not currently connect with Google+ despite what it says in this article. )

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 3, 2013 2:58 AM

This short (under 3 minutes) video created by CommonCraft provides an excellent overview of why students need to "think before" they click. Think abut using this as the 'hook' to begin a conversation about the digital image (footprint, tattoo) that each of us have online and ask your students to think about their image after they watch the video. Are there items that they may want to take down? Do they need to do some work to improve their digital image?

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, May 25, 2013 9:15 PM

Common Craft is always on target when it come to the essential concepts.

A Great Guide on Teaching Students about Digital Footprint ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great Guide on Teaching Students about Digital Footprint ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Have you ever Googled yourself ? Have you ever checked your virtual identity? Do you know that you leave a digital footprint every time you get online? Do you know that whatever you do online is accumulated into a digital dossier traceable by others ? These and several other similar questions are but the emerging tip of the sinking iceberg.One that is packed full of concerns related to issues of our online identity and privacy issues.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Online teachers learn to live with great online transparency.  It's wise to Google yourself, and become more aware of just how you 'look' on the Internet.


Professionals do this all the time.  But kids don't.  As teachers we often learn best by teaching a subject.  Are digital footprints someting likely to show up in your curriculum?

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I'm fascinated by the idea of a 'reputation trail' that builds a person's online presence and authority. 


For students who don't have much real world experience to add to their resume's a personal brand is a way to distinguish themselves to potential employers.  


More than ever, being aware of how you present yourself online is very important!
