This is a 6 slide outline for this project: This is a comprehensive technology lesson that actually forces the students to think for their own! The idea is for the student to pick a "new" technology, let's say smartphones... and discuss the advantages of having a smartphone over an old cell phone, and the disadvantages of this new type of phone. They will fill out an online graphic organizer - here-
....and then construct a Powerpoint presentation (or Keynote), displaying their information, and eventually coming up with a conclusion as to whether or not the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, or visa-verse. This project incorporates technology, ELA, the Arts, and more. The students can finally present to their classmates when they are all done. This was my principal's favorite lesson that I did that he observed.
