Essay, English

For this assignment, you will design a web page that presents research on ethical standards and safe practices in social and personal media communications. As you research and synthesize the information that you find, relate your conclusions to the consequences of personal choices made while participating in online communication.

The design of your web page is up to you. If you do not know how to construct a web page, a quick search will return thousands of sites explaining different ways to go about making a page. There are also many programs available that make creating a web page as easy as double-clicking. The presentation can be completed as a slideshow in a program such as PowerPoint or Prezi, if you prefer. If you would like, you can publish your webpage, but it is not a requirement of this assignment. The audience for your web page is the general public.

The following information needs to be included on your web page (or slideshow presentation).

1. Title/Introduction


2. Media Ethics Today
