Extension Ideas:

  • 1. Discussions for this lesson could be carried out online in a forum or chat. 2. To get an idea of how status messages reach a wider audience, this activity could be extended for another day, or even longer, with students in different classes responding to one another’s posts.3. Students could be asked to go home and make a list with their parents of what information they should never give out online. Keep the list near the computer so that everyone in the house knows what not to share online. 4. Students could be asked to journal responses to the pre-assessment prompts again at the end of the lesson. 5. Discussion could be extended to include text-messages: what elements of the Status Messages best practices should be observed when texting?
