Bring some technology into the presentations by challenging small groups of students to transform the PDFs presentation into an interactive learning tool for younger students or their peers. Ask them to add questions, feedback, more images, etc. so the PDF becomes a student-created tutorial on an aspect of digital citizenship. Of course, students will be graded on the accuracy of their information as well as their creativity. Think of it as inverse teaching. Have students extract the information (with proper credit of course) and create their tutorial using ePubEditor, reviewed here, or Zeetings, reviewed here. Prepare a rubric before you start or use our Rubrics to the Rescue to find one that shares your expectations for this project.
