Bullying is a huge issue, especially cyberbullying in this day and age. Students need to know the signs, symptoms, and how to handle situations anyways, so I think that integrating video editing and PowerPoint usage into a full-on project about bullying is a great idea. I really liked the video making aspect of this project. Learning how to create and edit audio/visual technology is a fantastic skill to posess and learning it at a young age makes students more comfortable with the technology alltogether. I think you really went in depth on what the students are going to need to know, which allows teachers to really analyze if their students are ready for a project of this magnitude. I also really like the group element of the project because it allows for collaboration and a hopefully more polished final product while teaching students the skill of working in a group with other people. Implementation of the METS standards was also nice because it gives us a more broad outlook on why this is a good lesson plan, which it absolutely is. One problem that I have is how are the students going to learn how to create, import, and edit the movie? There is no real mention of getting taught that element. Also it would be nice to have a few bullying resources provided on the lesson plan so teachers can get a head start in showing students some good resources. Overall I thought this was an excellent technology integration lesson plan, well done.
