Student Prior Knowledge

Intended Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to identify dangerous technology practices.


Instructional Procedures

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:

  • posters
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • pamphlets
  • essays
  • videos
  • Public Service Announcements (PSA's)


Strategies for Diverse Learners

Pair ELL or LD students with a friend who can assist them in creating a combined project. Presentations should be appropriate to the learner.
