This is a Collaborative Learning Community assignment.

Imagine that your principal has asked your group to prepare a mini   professional development session that can be presented to your teacher   colleagues during lunch. In your group, address the following topic:

Digital citizenship (digital communication, digital literacy,     digital etiquette, digital law, digital rights and responsibilities,     and digital security)

and select 2 additional topics from the   list below:

Bullying, including on and off campus
Searches of     students (drugs, weapons, cellphones, etc.)
Teachers’     duties (supervision, instruction, safety of students, warning of     known dangers) and failure to perform those duties
Teacher’s responsibilities regarding inclusion, compliance     with IEPs and students with exceptionalities
Reporting     requirements for suspected child abuse
FERPA and     students’ privacy rights

Based on your research, prepare a 15-20 slide PowerPoint to teach   your colleagues about the topics you selected.  As part of your   presentation, include a scenario for each topic that you will pose to   the group to guide your presentation on the effect of laws on the   selected topics.   

Support your presentation with three scholarly resources.

In addition, create a title slide, reference slides, and slide notes   that provide detailed explanations of your scenarios and application   of the law.
