In the video through The Teaching Channel, Mr. Pane, an elementary school teacher, gives a lesson on how to be safe online by using a program where students can create a superhero that helps people who are online. This lesson immediately engaged the students because they could use laptops to create their heroes. Using technology connects with the students because this what their lives revolve around. Their superheroes resolved issues like like cyber bullying, stealing, and other internet related dilemmas. The class had an “Art Gallery” to show the heroes among the class and show what they learned about safety on the internet. The gallery walks are great, I would do gallery walks in my class as a way for all students to express what they learned instead of having the shy and quiet students hold back because of presenting in front of the class. This creates an even playing field for all the students.
