Googleability??

I read an interesting blog post the other day that talked about some of the ramifications of our online presence – making kids googlable. It talks amongst other things about about employers searching online for information on potential employees and the need to make our students aware of this and to also build an online presence that may advantage them. There is scope to address this in our Year 10 Careers unit and I think students would gain a lot from focusing their attention on the issue and thinking through how this could affect them. Some thinking to do here on how best to address this but something I can see as being very worthwhile.
