What needs to be taught?

They need to know what to do and what not to do on the internet. They need to be responsible and need to know how to be safe.

Who will teach it?

Jay and John: Digital Commerce
Victoria and Kaycie: Digital Safety

How will it be taught?

We each need to teach a section or two. We are going to teach with the laptop and the projector Mrs. Vicki has. We are going to teach by small groups of each grade. Then we are going to question them to see what they have learned.

What online materials and information are needed?

Projector, Google presentation
