Creating a Central Resource for Digital Identity Education

Frostburg State University Creates Tumblr Page to House Information

To promote positive uses of social media across campus, Frostburg State University created Frostburg SAID (Students Assessing Identity Development). Frostburg SAID is a blog built on the social media platform Tumblr that collects resources and articles on digital identity development. These resources are grouped into four categories: unplugging, social media and privacy, personal branding, and digital literacy.

Frostburg SAID aims to help the campus community incorporate digital identity education into their work with students. Faculty and staff members can turn to Frostburg SAID for easily accessible information that facilitates conversations about social media use.
