Jeremy Matcham▸ Task 5: Information Systems

A lesson idea for behaving appropriately online:

Students should not be able to see your page already anyway, so on the same social media platform, post a warning leading up to the fake statement.

Ask the class to answer some questions that the other staff member will project on a screen, "accidentally" showing the class your fake public statement which they would believe for a moment to be true.
An example might be "My class this year are the worst I have ever had!"

Show a related video on appropriate online behaviour. An example might be
