This lesson describes a basic research and presentation project related to dangerous technology practices and situations.
Computer Access for each group.
Review the lesson plan on "Being Good Digital Citizens with Today's Technologies. This may be presented to students before the project is assigned, or the project may be done without the presentation depending on student knowledge about the suggested topics.
Students need to have a working understanding that technology use can create dangerous legal and personal situations.
Students will be able to identify dangerous technology practices.
Using Pioneer Online Library (EBSCO or SIRS Knowledge Source databases), have students research any topic related to technology and potentially dangerous behavior or misuse of the technology. Students should take notes on what they find and then prepare a final project that shares what they learned.
Below are some final project ideas:
Pair ELL or LD students with a friend who can assist them in creating a combined project. Presentations should be appropriate to the learner.
Oral presentations should be optional.
Use associated rubric.
