In the article, "Footprints in the Digital Age," Will Richardson the author explained how becoming technologically able or "googled" is like driving without any practice, in other words, it's a learn-from-your-mistakes way of learning. He also gave real world examples about how teens like us made a difference using the Internet. Laura, one of the students in the article, blogged about her beliefs and raised money for charities and other organizations. But others may abuse the Internet for example, con artists. The point that Richardson was trying to make is that our digital footprints may have different shapes. For Laura her digital footprint looks great but for others it may not be the same.
