E-book, Lesson Plan

Description:

In this lesson, students are required to research the topic and produce a three –fold poster or a PowerPoint Slide Show for a Cyber Safety Fair. The fair will be like a trade show. Each group will have a table at the show and will display their information on either the poster or where there is sufficient equipment and power, using PowerPoint. Students should also prepare a single page handout with a summary of their information. This lesson can also be used independently of the Cyber Safety Fair concept. The lessons in the Cyber Safety Fair group can be used to assemble a very informative and interesting session for students, parents and/or the community.

Overall I think that this is a great lesson. It's a good way to make sure students have a wide understand of the uses and misuses of the internet.

My only real critique is that it seems like one of the goals of the lesson is to help students get more comfortable using PowerPoint: "If you have not worked with image editing software or PowerPoint, you will want to become more comfortable with these technologies." But one of the options for turning in the assignment is to use a poster board. I understand that poster board gives students who don't have access to computers at home to still participate in the lesson, however this does not give these students the chance to improve their computer literacy. I think that a good way to compensate for this would be to give students one class period a week in the computer lab to work on the overall project.
