Exploring Internet Use
Below are two assignments completed by two different groups of grade nine students in Broad-Based Technology. After a few weeks looking at issues around Internet usage and privacy, the students had to choose an issue related to how teens use technology. Their objective was to create a research question and determine how the selected issue affected students at their school. The project was two-folded: to explore youth usage of the Internet so they could become more aware of issues surrounding the use of the Internet and young people, while also becoming familiar with the collaboative features of Google Drive and the applications it offers (form, document, spreadsheet, presentation).
