Innovations in Technology


In this lesson, students learn more about how social media works and appropriate and responsible use of the medium. Included with the lesson is a fun, quick, WebQuest to use as a warmup to the lesson to help students improve their Internet search skills. Next, students work in small teams to research one area of digital citizenship and create a poster in Microsoft Word or Powerpoint to showcase their learning. Finally, students look at their own digital footprint and create a graphic that shows how they want to be perceived online in the future. These project are great to print and display in the classroom or hallway!

This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary grades or high school as well.

This lesson is great for distance learning/remote learning. You can upload it to your school's learning management system (Google Classroom, Edmodo, Canvas, etc.) or share with students via Google Drive.
