Educational Slides and Lesson Plan

The following slides and lessons plans have been made available for teaching information ethics and consumer education in the classroom.

The videos include scenes of young people using marketplace apps, providing students with an idea of how to use these apps safely and securely. Students will proactively consider where problems exist and what action to take as they watch the videos, later discussing in groups and presenting their opinions. The facilitator then uses the slides to provide a wrap-up explanation. A leaflet is also provided for students to review what they learned.
