When you arrive at your house do you [[Play the New video game Immediately]] or [[ do a bit of research first]]You decide the project can wait there is plenty of time tommorow and Sunday So you play the video game but it is so addictive and you end up playing till almost midnight but you have to start the research soon bcause there still is the project do you [[type in volcanoes and go from there]] or [[go to bed]]You go into the search engine and type in "volcanoes" but you can't find any good information only little kid books and highly detailed scientific journals. Do you [[go to bed]] or [[keep on looking]]You decide to search for an article with enough information for your purposes and it is easy to understand and well written finally you find the perfect article but it takes you a while do you [[save the link and go to bed]].You wake up on saturday morning at about ten o clock and you say oh no I have to research now so I can write my report tommorow. But I think that I have time to [[play the video game more]]Double-click this passage to edit it.You decide the video game doesn't have a due date but this project does I'll do some research before I play hmm, do I just [[type in volcanoes and go from there]] or should I [[ find a detailed and reliable article at your reading level]]
You decide that you still have plenty of time and that you will be able to have enough time to research also but you play until lunch time after lunch you decide it is time to get to work do you(if: $videoGame is 5)[ [[continue the resarch]] or [[ start the project, you've done enough]]] (else:)[[[just look at a the first article that comes up for volcanoes]] or [[look more thourougly]]]. eventaully you find a decent article that will serve for your purpose. Hmm I should probably start researching this know but I could also go [[chill for a while]] but I probably should [[get to work]].You save the link and decide to go to bed you are satisfied with the amount of research you have done today and decide to go to bed and you wake up at about 8 what do you do should you [[play the video game more]] or [[read the article]].

You think it gotta do and go to bed when you present it to your science teacher the next day you fail the assignment your parents are so dissapointed and they take away your video game. Maybe you shouldn't of spent so much time layin it. better luck next time You finish your beautiful painting of a volcanoe erupting a pompeii. On Sunday and feel quite proud of your accomplishment. You bring it into science class on monday with confidence but you only get a C- your glad that you completed the project. BUt you know you could have done better.You think oh I could make my own chose-your-own-adventure book and you stat on it immediately when you finish it. you think it looks awesome and that it will be fun to read. Your science teacher does too and you get an A+ on the project. your parents are so happy that they buy you a cool item in your new video game. Your thrilled and happy that you put the time and effort into the researching of the projectYou make a simulation of a lava flow and it looks amazing you used colored butter as the magma and have it flod down a trough demonstrating how a lava flow can move quickly or slowly and devestate cities. only problem is it's quite messy and you get an A- because your project was a bit on the messy side. But it was still a well researched projects and your parents were proud.Heitin, Liana. “What Is Digital Literacy?” Education Week, 3 Apr. 2017, www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2016/11/09/what-is-digital-literacy.html.
