  • I'm commenting on myself! Hahahahaha :)
    I am bored. I don't particularly like technology but I understand that it is a permanent part of our society and so I must live with it and accept that it is useful and creative. It also has incredible potential in the field of teaching and learning in classrooms! Thus, I shall henceforth endeavour to be more tolerant of new technological advancements that I encounter. Have fun with your journeys of technological weirdness. :)

  1. 1. EDUC1751 Assessment 1Virtual Presentation<br />Shakespeare-online <br /> Wikipedia Shakespeare Article<br />By Gabriella King, c3145927<br />
  2. 2. Technology and Education<br />Technology is wending its way into the educational context, but how to know what is good to use in teaching and learning, and what is bad?<br />Good Website (Shakespeare-online) compared to a Bad Website (Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article).<br />
  3. 3. Shakespeare-online and Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />Shakespeare-online<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />
  4. 4. Aspects for Comparison<br />Visual <br />Information<br />Engagement<br />Credibility<br />Relevance<br />
  5. 5. Visual<br />Shakespeare-online<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />Bright, with clear and legible text.<br />The page is easily navigated with hyperlinked subtitles and headings.<br />Black and white with numerous blue hyperlinks within the text.<br />The blue hyperlinks make it difficult to read the text.<br />
  6. 6. Information<br />Shakespeare-online<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />Provides assistance with analysis and readings of Shakespeare’s works.<br />Biographical information.<br />Information regarding Shakespeare’s social and historical contexts.<br />Biographical information.<br />How Shakespeare has influenced other writers over time.<br />There is no information about his social or historical contexts.<br />
  7. 7. Engagement<br />Shakespeare-online<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />The site is interactive with quizzes on Shakespeare’s plays to assess how well you understand them. <br />All the information is contained on one long page in a mass of block text.<br />
  8. 8. Credibility<br />Shakespeare-online<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />The author, Amanda Mabillard, has completed a B.A. (Honours) in English at the University of Alberta, Canada.<br />She founded Shakespeare-online in 1997 because she wanted to provide students and teachers with free and reliable information about Shakespeare.<br />Anyone can contribute to Wikipedia articles.<br />According to Wikipedia “what is contributed is more important than the expertise or qualifications of the contributor”(Wikipedia, 2011).<br />
  9. 9. Relevance<br />Shakespeare-online<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article<br />It is a multimedia text which complies with the NSW Board of Studies 7-10 English syllabus stages 4 and 5 text requirements.<br />It can be used for student research or as a teacher resource.<br />It could be used as a starting point for student research but NOT as the formative source for research. <br />
  10. 10. Summary<br />Shakespeare-online is a good website to use in teaching and learning because:<br />Visually appealing and comprehensive<br />Easy to navigate<br />Provides a broad scope of information and analysis<br />Interactive<br />Relevant to both teachers and students<br />
  11. 11. Summary<br />Wikipedia’s Shakespeare article is a bad website to use in teaching and learning because:<br />It is difficult to read<br />Provides a limited scope of information<br />Reliability and accuracy of information is questionable<br />Lacks unique or engaging qualities to maintain interest<br />
  12. 12. Conclusion<br />Therefore, the Shakespeare-online website is a better website to use for teaching and learning the topic of Shakespeare than the Wikipedia article about Shakespeare.<br />
  13. 13. In the Future<br />In the future I will aim to aim to maintain clarity, interest and relevance in any technological resource that I may create.<br />I will use such good features as visual appeal, easy navigation and interactive qualities to improve technology resources for students and teachers.<br />
