    To truly comprehend the values of the strengths and the weaknesses of the presentation, I asked the grade sixes what they thought of the lesson. For most of them, they found it nice for us to introduce a new topic to them which they have not heard of, but plays an important role in their 'Digital Life.' One of the students, Dana Al Misnad, says she benefited from the numerous artifacts which kept her engaged during the lesson. One of the main weakness of the lesson, from our partnership's behalf was that we did not yell at the students to discipline them and let them focus. Being a young class, they had problems focusing in the topic being presented to them.
    The Investigate stage of the Design Cycle was one of the most important stages in this unit. It helped prepare us for the lesson which we were going to present. In this unit, it was our job to research the topic of Digital Health and Wellness and come up with topics to focus on with are age-friendly to the intended viewers. The main strength associated with this unit was that we focused on topics which would appeal to the viewers; Internet addiction and Ergonomics. Another positive was that we each chose to research one of the topics and formed guiding questions to provide an equal balance between the work. After the researching stage was complete, we posted all our information onto the WikiSpace and updated our process journal blogs. The main limitation associated with this stage was that we did not provide images or visual representations of our work. An improvement would be to add visuals which would help enhance the appeal to the intended viewers.

    Another artifact which we used during the presentation was a movie from Youtube about Ergonomics.

    Impact on audience:
    Digital Health & Wellness is a very important topic and relevant to our world today.

    It might have been because they weren’t interested in out topic or our presentation wasn’t suitable enough for their age-group.
    In order to improve this, I could have tried to ask more questions, especially students who seemed to be bored.

    My performance:
    I think that my performance during the presentation was quite good and that through the artifacts like handouts, power-points, movies, and activities I was able to speak to most of the Grade 6 students in an effective way.
