This is an event – the first resource to be posted borne of collaboration! Debbie Jones – @teach_ict – of Teach-ICT fame very kindly put together two of the handouts in this set covering the moral issues in ICT.
The social & moral implications of ICT are something we both have a passion for, yet I remember being taught about them when I was a student in a desperately dry, detached way. These handouts are designed to generate discussion – I’ll be using them with my OCR Unit 8 groups, splitting in to groups of 3 for discussion, then opening the floor up to the class after they describe their scenario. Subjects covered:
- File sharing
- Web addiction
- Web medicine
I hope they’re useful – we had fun making them!

Thanks for these resources, they are excellent!
I think they would provide excellent discussion activities. I also like your resource showing the young web millionnaires. I too find that students find it too easy to dismiss ICT’s usefulness and value in today’s society.
I am working on a few generic classroom displays such as “Use of ICT in Society” and will let you have a copy once they are complete.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks Adrian, glad you’ve found them useful!
Looking forward to seeing anything you’ve made… the mantra on Twitter is “sharing is caring” 😉
