Students use a storyboard (from among eight possibilities) which represents an ethical dilemma related to the use of computers to create a PowerPoint presentation. After completion, students view and rate each other's presentations which are set to loop continuously.
I have chosen to provide skeleton storyboards as I teach PowerPoint as opposed to asking for completely original work. This route helps students delve further into ethics, rules, and laws, and provides support in grammar/spelling to English Language Learners and others. Even so, it is essential to remind, prod, and demand that students use the spell check tool and peer proofreading since mistakes will be on display!
