Think before you act!

In today’s technological society it is important to consider which information you want to share on the internet. Once it is out there for everyone to see, it can be proven difficult to remove. Therefore it’s smart to be proactive, to think before you act.

ThinkB4U.com is a website devoted to teaching people to think before they act, write, share etc. (The name says it all). What is great about this web-site is that its design and layout is unique.  It presents several cases, or scenarios, each with a specific problem you have to answer yes or no to. In that way, ThinkB4U “forces” people to pay attention and therefore, hopefully, makes them aware of possible consequences their choices can have.

ThinkB4U is in many ways a learning game, and consequently most suited for younger students. Nevertheless, the website is divided into three different categories: advice for students, parents and educators.  ThinkB4Y have tips for most situations, for example shopping online and protecting personal information, making in suitable for all ages. In other words, the web-site is worth a visit if you want to learn more about how to use technology in our everyday life.

To conclude, everybody leaves digital footprints whether they wish to or not. Therefore, it is important to know just what you accept when you, for instance, download an app, use cookie-based web-sites or post something online. Living today involves a lot of technology, and as a result, it is more important than ever to make well- informed choices.
