Hex 5-10: Final Project

For your final project for this class, you will be creating a project on an issue within digital citizenship.

Research an issue from within the nine elements of digital citizenship and create a presentation (one person per topic).  Your information should be an extension of what we have talked about in class, NOT regurgitation of what we have already covered.  The majority of your information should come from your sources (not from your head, a friend, or anybody off the street that isn't an expert on your topic).

Sign up in the comments section of this blog post, identifying the element AND the topic--first one to post gets the topic (you must include your first name, the element of digital citizenship, and the topic to claim first rights).  Let me know if you have any ideas that are NOT on the list (but fit within one of the nine elements).

Other requirements:
-You must use at least one print source.  Some good options:  Cybersmarts ebooks on Mackinvia.com (under Groups); books in the library; or articles in a database (Super Search, EBSCO, etc.)  [Websites are NOT a print source]
-You must include at least one video or audio clip on your topic (under 5 minutes), either that you find through your research OR you can record an interview with an expert (example:  Miss Bechtold, the nurse, other adults in your life) or someone who has real-life experience with your topic
-You will be presenting in front of the class using Google Presentation, Prezi, or any other Web 2.0 tool that would work for presentations of this type.  You may have a time limit for your presentation (TBD)
-You must include in-text citations and a Works Cited page created using Noodletools

Suggestions:
-Try to include a real-life example (a real person's story--can be someone you know, but it can be something you find online or in your video)
