Prior to beginning work on this interactive assignment, please read all of the required resources for this week. Review the instructions below and research a minimum of five additional peer-reviewed and/or scholarly sources in the UAGC Library that were published within the last 10 years to help support your statements.
For this week’s interactive assignment, you will be creating a 5-7 minute video speech presentation related to the topic of cyberbullying. (You may use any video capture software of your choice. A Screencast-O-Matic quick-start guideLinks to an external site. including the ability to capture your webcam is provided for your convenience.) For your video presentation, prepare talking points that respond to each of the following topics.
- Explain at least one of the basic legal rights of individuals who are impacted by cyberbullying.
- Discuss one technique individuals, parents, or businesses can use to protect themselves or their children from cyberbullying.
- Evaluate at least one ethical issue that parents, schools, or workplaces must consider when implementing a new technique to protect their children, students, and/or staff from cyber bullies.
Once you have created your talking points, be sure to practice your presentation to ensure that it will meet the time requirements. (This is meant to mirror the more informal presentations that occur in on-ground masters programs. No official PowerPoint or other type of presentation should be created. The ability to speak candidly to these points is what will be evaluated.) Please review the Best Practices for Video Creation document prior recording your video.
Once you have created your video, copy and paste the URL into your initial post. In a separate document, prepare a reference list for your sources in APA format as outlined by the UAGC Writing CenterLinks to an external site., and attach the document to your initial post prior to submission.
