This lesson gets students to look at a range of articles, looking at the impact of corruption politically and how ICT could have a positive and negative influence. Included: PPT Starter Links to research on corruption ** I had to remove the images for the plenary due to copyright however I have left the names on each slide so is still possible to play, if necessary you can simply add the images back.

Agenda, minutes and stakeholders

Agenda, minutes and stakeholders

This lesson gets students to discuss what an ‘agenda’ is, and then they have to create one together acting as different stakeholders. The roles are not included in this PPT, however I previously got students to base their activity around the potential opening of an airport. I have added in a video clip that interviews local residents, this could be used to brainstorm the different stakeholders in this situation before planning out the agenda and conducting the meeting (each student acting as a stakeholder in the scenario). Included: PPT Main activity Starter Youtube stakeholder clip

For the main activity, I would recommend printing out A4 maps in black and white for students to label the various impacts of climate change globally.
