In this self-paced lesson, students explore various aspects of online communication. Students watch videos that encourage them to think about their own participation in social networking and to consider how much time they think people should spend online. They also watch videos about positive and negative aspects of online communication that real young people have experienced. Students then complete an interactive activity to show where they stand on a range of online behaviors. The lesson concludes with a final assignment in which students crate a presentation of their ideas about online communication.
As you go through this lesson, you will watch videos and work out your ideas in a "Compare It!" interactive activity. You will also answer questions and type comments into notes boxes.
At the end of the lesson, you will have a chance to print out your notes and your ideas from the "Compare It!" interactive activity. Use the printouts to aid in your group discussion at the end of the activity. Your teacher will let you know whether you should also hand in these printouts.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
