For this project, you will answer the essential question: "Why is it important for me to remain safe and healthy on the job? " To answer this question, you will research your chosen career field to learn about the most common work-related injuries and sicknesses for that field. Then you will research the best ways employers and employees can work together to prevent or minimize injuries and sicknesses. Utilizing your research, students will develop a VuVox presentation that is a training tool that teaches employees how to recognize and prevent illness and injury.

You will be inserting both pictures and video into the VuVox. There are a number of great videos on YouTube that you can utilize in your presentation. Before starting the project, check out the 50Ways Wikispace for a detailed description of VuVox and some awesome presentation samples. Be sure to watch the VuVox instructional video below. It gives great ideas on how to develop a winning VuVox presentation.
