Although I have covered many of the topics covered in this lesson plan, (even using one of the videos suggested) I like the group activities and discussions. Also the idea of getting them to make a profile online and then have them peer evaluated is genius:

7- Show them how to use social media 

Social media websites s are among the top sources of your digital footprints.Here is an activity to do with them on this. Get them to pair up in small groups and ask them to create a profile on some social networking website you select for them. When they finished , get them to share  their profiles with other groups. Give them time to peer edit each other and make the editing process interactive by allowing each student to assess others’ profile. Finally,  Give your feedback to each group.

I think I will be incorporating these ideas next year!
