Please use a Detective Nickname for this course, especially if you are under 18. The objective is the course is to learn how to track "a" digital footrpint. Once you have learned these skills, you can start to create your own "digital footprint" outside of this course.

This course is focused on social media and how to track digital footprints. As such, you are encouraged to participate by offering your blog website url, twitter links and other tools of tracking so we can all learn from each other. You are encouraged to create "anonymous" blogs, webiste urls, twitter accounts and other tools for the duration of this course.

While I (Verena Roberts) will not be using your IP to track you in any way, please always be aware that others might be. The only tracking tools that we will use are Hashtracking - for twitter tweets only, and we will create a page with a collection of anyone's blogs or home bases within this wiki.
