  • Recognize the ethical considerations of sharing information (A)Distinguish the kinds of information appropriate to reproduce and share publicly, and private information disseminated in more restricted/discreet environments (C)
  • First tried as Google Yourself or Your InstructorQuotes, changing search terms, adding search termsCan allude to finding private information (ages, addresses, grades) but should not post sensitive informationSTUDENTS LOVE IT! ALREADY DONE THIS SEMESTER AND IT”S NOT DUE UNTIL SUNDAY
  • ALL RESEARCH IS BREADCRUMBS. Followed up by assignment involving a citation trail backwards and forwards.
  • Produce original content appropriate to specific needs in multiple media formats; transfer knowledge gained to new formats in unpredictable and evolving environments (B)Value user-generated content and critically evaluate contributions made by others: see self as a producer as well as consumer, of information (A)Beef up this assignments collaboration: Have them use different tools to convey the same information (similar to final assignment)
  • Discuss content types, tools,and the prevalenceof the information cycle. Peer-review and revision-collaborative. Objects mostly publicly accessible
  • Other examples:http://www.powtoon.com/p/d38gcFYe93u/#.UUY7e4IT6SU.favoriteshttp://www.tiki-toki.com/timeline/entry/111573/BP-Oil-Spill-Information-Cycle/#vars!date=2010-04-24_08:33:46!
  • Determine scope of the question or task required to meet one’s needs Recognize that learning is a process and that reflecting on errors or mistakes leads to new insights and discoveries (M)
  • Love/Hate relationship with LMS discussions
  • Appreciate the importance of assessing content from different sources, including dynamic content from social media, critically (A)Place an information source in its context (for example, author’s purpose, format of information, and delivery mode) in order to ascertain the value of the material for that particular situation (B, C)
  • In groups of four students are assigned a book (or book chapter) and a scholarly article on a topic. They must create four new secondary sources of varying content types based on these sources (News article, blog, press release, encyclopedia entry, video). A wikipedia assignment would also function well here.
