The purpose of this report is to 1) incorporate the research found in your Annotated Bibliography assignment, 2) think about the structure and information needed for the Final Presentation, and 3) develop your written communication skills.
Remember that the Annotated Bibliography, the Progress Report, and the Final Presentation are all connected to each other. At this point, it is helpful to think ahead to what you want your final presentation to look like. Looking at the Final Presentation description and rubric, what criteria can be addressed by the information you’ve already found in your Annotated Bibliography? You will probably find that there are pieces missing and that you need to do some additional research to fill in these gaps.
At the end of Week 6, you are to submit a progress report that demonstrates that you have been working towards your final presentation. Your progress report should be 2-4 pages in length and include the following:
· A well-written paragraph that states in detail what your topic is. Be sure to clearly link your topic to both technology and society/societal trends.
· A well-written paragraph that identifies the type of presentation you plan to give (e.g. slideshow, written materials, podcast, YouTube, etc.). Your presentation should be creative, engaging, and informative. Remember that in the last week of class, YOU become the teachers. Think about your audience and how to present material in an interesting and clear manner.
· A preliminary overview that shows what will you address in your presentation. Your progress report and presentation should include the following components:
· Trace the history of your topic
· Describe how your topic compares to at least one other culture
· Identify relevant policies related to your topic
· Discuss future trends related to your topic
· In-text citations in APA-7 format for any sources used to support your statements about history, culture, and policy. Note the importance of including citations in the rubric. If citations are not provided, your score will be negatively impacted.
Remember that this is a progress report and you may not have all of the information you need at this point. That’s fine. You can provide an overview or bullet points of what you do have thus far and identify areas where you are still looking for information.
Example for “Trace the history of your topic” on the topic of widget-making: I was able to trace widget-making back to the early 1800s through a source found at the Library of Congress (Washington, 1832). I also found a more recent document that shows that the widget-making industry had collapsed but was making a revival as recently as 2010 (Jones, 2012). I will incorporate this information into my presentation, but I would like to find a source that explains what happened anytime between 1800 and 2010. I imagine that the fall of widget-making in the past two centuries may have had a profound impact on poverty and crime in the centers of wid

Annotation (12 points)
In your own words (no copying or use of quotations), provide the following:
· Summary of key findings (1-2 paragraphs)
· 3-5 key takeaways (maybe a bulleted list)
· Reflection of the usefulness of the source for your project (1-2 sentences)
Students have become more reliant on these devices due to the growing use of ICT in the classroom. Thus, cyberbullying is a new kind of bullying that has evolved from conventional peer bullying in school playgrounds. During the 2018-2019 school years, 1206 students from various secondary education levels were randomly chosen for the study. Data collection began with handing students questionnaires that contained Cyberbullying Scale and a Confidential Information Form. According to the findings, low-level cyberbullying was prevalent among secondary and vocational school students. Research on how to avoid cyberbullying and promote healthy internet use may benefit from the results of this study, which is expected to be published soon. Key takeaways from this article;
· Students at high schools and technical colleges might attend seminars to learn more about cyberbullying and avoid it.
· Identifying those kids most likely to engage in cyberbullying behavior might be the subject of research studies. In addition, these kids may get group and one-on-one counseling to assist them in overcoming their difficulties.
· Students, particularly males, might benefit from education campaigns focused on raising their knowledge of the types and stages of cyberbullying they are experiencing.
The author’s discussion on the frequency of cyberbullying among kids in Northern Cyprus’ secondary schools and research questions would benefit my study. However, with a well-researched investigation, the author conveyed his conclusions by interviewing those believed to have committed these crimes.

Week 6 – Progress Report
Topic: Transportation and its Impact on Society
Since the industrial revolution mankind has made a great progress in many ways
including transportation. Although the progress has brought about many benefits, like being able
to move from point A to point B faster and not just locally by automobiles, but also on a global
level by aviation and railroad, the benefits came at a grate expense. The greatest price is
manifesting in the scientifically proven climate change and its consequences deriving from
carbon emissions, greenhouse gasses, and air pollution.
In this slideshow we’ll address those consequences by referring to case studies, scholarly
articles, and analysis that shed light on the problem and urges the need for alternative energy
sources. First, we’ll discuss an article published by engineers from University of Zilina, Faculty
of Securing Engineering, in Slovakia by Zdenka Urbancova and Maria Luskova, PhD regarding
railway transportation and its facilities and how they influence the society. Specifically, the
implications of railway operations and power failure that directly impact human population,
infrastructure, environmental issues, and its importance to societies as a whole (Urbancova,
Luskova, 2019). These issues were discussed during an International Multidisciplinary Scientific
Conference on Social Sciences and Arts SGEM.

Production, and is titled Public transportation adaptation requires a paradigm shift in urban
