This video provides a great introduction into our e-mail/internet safety unit and promotes discussing the pros/cons of social networking sites for 6th graders. Students will evaluate which method is the best way to communicate with family and friends. They will also prioritize these different technologies based on the ones they would use most often to communicate. Working in cooperative groups, students will brainstorm the pros and cons of each type of technology communication medium (Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, Texting, My Space, etc.)
