#CelebrateWithDE – Cyber Monday

Happy Cyber Monday! On November 27, 2017, people everywhere will celebrate the special deals you can find online. While so many people are going online in search of goodies, we want to encourage our students to go online in search of the good: safe, accurate, secure, and – yes – fun and fascinating things.

Use the SOS Strategy: Exit Ticket (Canadian Version) to assess how well students understand the material. Using exit tickets can also support the retention of new information in students’ minds. Since it’s important that students have a solid understanding of internet safety issues, ask students to review their key points from the media they studied and rank them in order of importance on their exit tickets. Collect the tickets as the students leave the room (or finish the activity) and review them to determine whether there are misunderstandings about internet safety that you can address with the whole class.
