Week 7: Activity 3: It is better to have a negative digital footprint than no footprint at all, debate.
A debate between two groups of people with different opinions on digital footprint.
Teacher: Hey class, I have a question for you. Is it better to have a negative digital footprint or no footprint at all?
Student 1: I think that having a negative digital footprint is better than having no footprint at all.
Teacher: OK please give me three reasons why you think so.
Student 1: One, having a digital footprint is essential because it allows one to share one’s opinions and work, and to connect with other people in a way that is otherwise very difficult to achieve, so even if it’s a negative one it'll be good to have.
Two, A person can be remembered by a digital footprint. Therefore, I believe that it is better to be remembered as a person with flaws, than not be remembered at all.
Three, having a partly negative digital footprint does not mean that a negative digital footprint cannot have positive aspects.
These are three reasons why I think that having a negative footprint is better.
Teacher: Thank you, anyone with a different opinion?
Student 2: Yes, I got a different opinion. I think that having no digital footprint is better than to have a negative one.
Teacher: Please give me three reasons why you think so.
Student 2: One, I believe that it is better to have no digital footprint than a negative one because a digital footprint is not the only way to be remembered.
Two, It is very difficult to modify or change one’s digital footprint. If one makes a mistake, it is permanent.
Three, a negative digital footprint has negative effects on others, as well as the person who created the footprint. Having no footprint has no effect, which is preferable to a negative effect.
Teacher: Thank you students! And now readers, “WHO DO YOU AGREE WITH and WHY?” Give three reasons.
If you read the 'about me' post, you'd probably notice that I admire the environment a lot, but I'd also mention that my favorite animal is the Amur Tiger, and all species in the cat family. That is why my avatar is a picture of a cat.
My personality is not like a cat, because in my opinion cats are the closest creatures to gods. So my avatar does not represent me, because I am not god. My avatar is just a picture of a cat because I love cats.
