Managing Digital Footprints – For Grandparents (March 2014)

This is an audio recording of a presentation shared by Dr. Wesley Fryer on March 12, 2014, at Church of the Resurrection in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The presentation explored what “digital footprints” are, why it’s important for parents and grandparents to have regular conversations with young people about their digital footprints, how many misconceptions abound concerning teen use of social media, and what we can do to manage our digital footprints constructively. (Note: Near the conclusion of the presentation, Wes inaccurately identified the name of the final video remix as “Come on Eileen” instead of “Video Killed the Radio Star.”)
