McKinley eist 5100 cyberbullying


Published on

Completed as a project for course work, this is a presentation on internet safety and cyber-bullying for parents of school children. The assignment was to use a non-linear style presentation on a pertinent topic in technology in education. It is possible to pace through the presentation in order, but it is better to use the various buttons to go to the main content page, to go to topics within the two parts, to skip around or to go to the end, which is a page of some interesting statistics. I envisaged an interactive meeting where parents could ask questions or make comments and the presenter could then navigate forward or back to the appropriate slide easily.
