Our digital footprint reveals much about us. Platforms like Instagram or Spotify and Google Search offer a telling look into a person's psyche and what persona they'd like to project to the world. In this activity, students are asked to imagine what a character's digital footprint might look like at a given point in a story. Here, they will curate images, sources and music from across the web and create 3 posts specific to an assigned character. All choices must be reinforced by textual evidence and supported by reasoning. If you want to challenge your students to get more creative, delve deep into analysis and implement technology into their learning, this activity hits the mark. It is perfect for differentiation as students are able to choose which platform they'd like!
I like to upload this activity as a Google Slides presentation so my students can complete it digitally and share. If you have limited access to technology, feel free to delete the text boxes and print paper copies to hand out!
