Big Idea

My Online Community

Essential Question How does the Internet connect you to others? 

Students explore the concept that people can connect with one another through the Internet. They understand how the ability for people to communicate online can unite a community. Students discuss the nature of the Internet, and understand that while it is not a “real” physical place, it is made up of real people. They use a graphic representation to explain the different in-person connections they have with their family, friends, and community. Students then use the same graphic model to represent how they could connect to others on the Internet by creating maps of their potential online community.
