  • There were series of faculty banning students from using these sources in there classes. This caused great debate within academia and fueled the flames of the fiery generational divide. During this time, it was all about users going to the Internet and finding information and it was pretty much a one-way experience. In contrast, Web 2.0 relies on user participation Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • The term first became notable after the O’Reilly Media Web 2.0 Conference in 2004. Content is created, shared, remixed, repurposed, and passed along. Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • The term Web 2.0 refers to a “second generation of services available on the World Wide Web that lets people collaborate and share information online. Futurist Paul Saffo sees Web 2.0 as the age of personal media. He speaks of the change from consumer to creator as evidenced by the rapid growth of blogs. Information and work that was once restricted to web designers or learning HTML codes, is now available to everyone through Web-based applications and services like wikis and blog. Now its just a matter of choosing what layout, color, and design for your web content. Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • Compare stats from last presentation – Twitter wasn’t even a major factor Social network sites that originated in the early 2000’s are now dominating & possibly defining this decade. These sites have played a tremendous role in politics, business, and the criminal justice system. Institutions of Higher Education have a responsibility in connecting with their students and meeting them in the learning environment that they prefer to use to communicate and disseminate information. Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • (Ex- news reports that included statistical information, uses or misuses of statistics, interesting graphs, cartoons, data sets, websites that teach statistics, survey or poll results, YouTube videos, etc.). Thought this would be a great way to emphasize statistical literacy in her course and to help them become more savvy consumers of statistical information they are presented with in the "real world" on a daily basis. Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • Generally refers to online conversation about the topic or the speaker. Cliff Atkins author of “The Backchannel: How Audiences are Using Twitter and Social Media….and changing presentations forever” The idea of the book was conceived at the South by Southwest Interactive Conference in March 2009, where he witnessed how audiences there were using Twitter to communicate with one another and influence live presentations. the audience can converse with one another and respond to what they’re hearing in the room, the content of the presentation doesn’t make it into the stream unless someone (re)tweets it. So what if your presentation software could send tweets on your behalf that were timed to the slides of your presentation? You could effectively simulcast your presentation through the backchannel as a part of the conversation, adding ‘more info’ links, credits, or anything else you could imagine… Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • Art History: Search for photos and user-created maps showing famous museums like the Louvre in Paris. Earth Science: Use Google Maps Mashup to locate and learn about recent earthquakes around the world. Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
  • Just like we have a ready reference section in our library, their needs to be an online source available to students on which sites to use. Students need to be taught about classifying and identifying the sources that they create, as well as how they search content. Courtney Mack, MLS - FSU Information Literacy Workshop
