The nature of bullying has changed from being a face to face situation to becoming something done over the internet. Educating students and educators about cyber-bullying is crucial to putting an end to bullying.
I really liked your lesson. This topic is important and is something that our students need to learn about. Many don’t understand how destructive online bullying can be. Bullying of the past was mostly face to face and much of it was out in the open. This new type of cyber bullying is just as dangerous and maybe even more since it’s in cyberspace and can remain hidden.
You have a great beginning to your lesson by having a discussion of cyber bullying without them knowing what they are truly discussion. Whenever you can get students engaged into a lesson without them knowing the particular topic, it gets them engaged when you reveal the content they will really learning. It is even better when they make the connection on their own without the teacher having to make it for them.
Good job including UDL principles such as group work and peer evaluations. This will allow students to work together to create their presentation and also allow them to think about what is expected of the project by doing the peer evaluations. Those evaluations will provide the owners of the project another insight that could further their understanding of the topic. Very nice job overall.
Good job incorporating online resources such as Diigo, blogs and screencast. This lesson not only exposes students to the threat of online bullying but also to technological resources. For their presentation, students are given the opportunity to choose to use PowerPoint, Prezi or Educreations app.

Wow! Great lesson plan! The topic is super pertinent and appropriate for the audience. Even though they might have heard this before, they will be exposed to many interesting activities and learning experiences that I know students will enjoy and learn something new. UDL Principles and instructional strategies are very explicit in this plan. Why? This plan provides many activities to reach each student.
