Creating an Active Digital Footprint

What a great topic and delivery of the material.  This presentation is an excellent use of UDL; truly shows students material in a way that reaches everybody.  The idea of bringing real world scenarios into the lesson is a great way to get our students thinking about their conduct beyond the social media that they are using.  The quote of statistics for job searches and being turned down allows students to look toward their future and how their behaviour may affect their job prospects.  I liked the immediate feedback offered as I navigated through the site and enjoyed the encouragement of "try again" or "great job".  I would suggest a short tutorial on some of terms used prior to asking to take the quiz, for example: "what are not social media" (some people may not be famiiar with all of the listed items and there was not a definition slide explaining each one).  This presentation would be a great tool to use at the beginning of the school year (prior to computer lab).

Technical Remarks:

I was unable to use the slide asking me to click on the exmaples at different levels of school and this disallowed me to complete your presentation.
