Social and Ethical Technology

Social and Ethical practices of

using technology need to be

stressed at a young age. My

students have done little work with

information found on the Internet.

They are starting to explore and

discover the multitude of

informatoin that is available to

them on the computer. Therefore,

they need to be taught how to use

this tremendous resource.

Before working with any technology my students will be taught the basics of proper Internet and technology use. I have created a series of 3 lessons to introduce my students to the necessary technologies they will need to complete their Action Plan and provide them with the social and ethical practices of the Internet.
