Don’t hide your online self when applying for college or career

Great advice.

[I]t is common to hear students applying for college or a job say before doing so, they plan to take down their online profiles or change their name to something unidentifiable. Innovative educators know this is not the best strategy. Instead our job is to support young people in creating a responsible digital footprint that, rather than hinder, would attract colleges and employers. Knowing how to do that is the job of educator’s today. –Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Don’t hide your online self when applying for college or career.
