  16. 16. AppendixAssertion-Evidence Model is a redesign of PowerPoint’s default structure of a topic-phrase headline supported by a bullet list of subtopics. Unlike PowerPoint, assertion-evidence model support the sentence headlines (assertion) by visual evidence:photos, drawings, diagrams, graphs, films, or equations (evidence) to better serve theaudience in understanding and remembering the content of a presentation(Alley, 2012) In Slide 3, I used the visual of computer (evidence) to show how easy to accessthe Instructional Center website, which can be done from school’s or home’s computer(assertion). in Slide 8, I used the visual of 6 men in orange outfits (with respective highlightedwords) to represent the strategies used when selecting Internet resources(assertion), while the man in yellow represent the student who needs help in selectingand evaluating the effective Internet resources (evidence).Student-focused element of this presentation is Slide 14 as it directly relates to thefact that most students, when using the Web, often divulge personal informationwithout knowing the risks and consequences they may be facing. I also select thisslide in consideration that it is the ethical responsibility of the educator to address theprivacy issues to students. (Kamm, 2012)
