Week 12

Welcome to our twelfth week of class.

Before we move toward the readings, discussions, and assignments for week 12, let’s overview quickly our week 11 activities.

Week 11 was about further mastering your multimedia skills and improving our presentation skills by choosing appropriate tools and also tightening up to content of our presentations. We were exposed to the idea of digital storytelling as a method to command strong social media presence.

 

Week 12 offers an excellent opportunity to expand your horizons in regard of social media application. Concept such as OER (open educational resources) and understanding of Creative Commons can help you in the future save your company or the organization you are working for. In additional, an understanding of privacy issues can help you safeguard yourself from legal complications, as well as help you function as a good citizen by structuring your social media activities in a way they do not infringe on the rights of your fellow citizens. As usually, you are invited to contribute with your own findings/readings.

 

As in the past weeks, this weekly increment will continue to move in the following fashion:

  1. Read your articles, research and contribute with your own readings, if possible. Wed-Thursday.

Week 9

 

Welcome to our ninth week of class.

Before we move toward the readings, discussions, and assignments for week 8, let’s overview quickly our week 8 activities.

Spring break + week 8 was your opportunity to catch up with major assignments, due January 31 and February 15. Now the third major assignment, due March 14 is your first draft. Unless, you are renowned writer, most probably you will not be able to have an excellent grade on your final project, without submitting these three assignments – they are the guarantee, you are working diligently on your final project. Institutional social media is NOT about spur-of-the-moment tweeting, or Facebooking, unless you are a president of a major country. Social media is about good-to-perfect language and planning. If you pursue a solid final project with, respectively, good grade, you need to plan and work seriously toward it.

Week 8 and spring break were also your opportunity to catch up with class discussions, whether on Facebook or D2L. Class discussions accumulate a significant percentage of your final grade.

This past eight week, the major topic was “fake news.” Fake news, undoubtedly rules both domestically and globally the headlines. It is a topic, which is intimately connected with the essence of social media. A failure to understand the phenomenon “fake news” is not a failure of this class, it is a failure to understand real life.

 

In the next ninth week, we will be embarking full throttle into the visual aspects of social media. Multimedia and interactivity are the essence of the Internet success. The Internet rendered books and newspapers obsolete to a great degree thanks to the Internet content, which is ruled by multimedia and interactivity.

This week, you will get acquainted with Infographics and will start testing presentation tools, so you can have sufficient time to choose one for your final presentation.
Using your Evernote assignments, you will be working in teams to improve your first draft toward your final project.

 

 

As in the past weeks, this weekly increment will continue to move in the following fashion:

  1. Read your articles, research and contribute with your own readings, if possible. Wed-Thursday. https://stcloudstate.learn.minnstate.edu/d2l/le/content/3980495/viewContent/33552374/View

Spring Break

Some of you kept working through this week and some of you chose to take early spring break. Either way, you need to complete the requirements for week 8.

I strongly advise you to use your spring break and catch up with missing assignments, since after spring break, your workload will be complemented with by efforts toward your final project.

In regard of the final project, your first draft is due soon. I am willing to take early submissions and return feedback; this will increase your chance to collect the full allocated points for that particular draft.

Week 7

 

Welcome to our eighth week of class.

Before we move toward the readings, discussions, and assignments for week 8, let’s overview quickly our week 7 activities.

Your work is picking up. This is a great news, but also worrisome one, since we are only a week away from spring break; middle of the semester. If you are seeking an excellent grade in this class, you must now double your efforts, to compensate for missed opportunities. You can start by submitting two major assignments, which were due Jan 31 and Feb 15 and work diligently on your first draft, which is due in two weeks. You also can compensate by starting much more livelier discussions.
It is obvious that you have a lot to say and your contributions so far were thoughtful and inspiring, but they are not sufficient.

 

This past week, we looked at the rather broader picture of the intersection between social media and global issues. At the same time, you entered the very hands-on / practical part of the class, where you had to deal with multimedia. Multimedia is the backbone of social media and by now, you need also to start thinking of incorporating multimedia in your blog, Facebook postings, Twitter and any other social media of personal use. Shortly, thinking about your social media strategy.

 

Next eighth week, will a continuation of week 7: we will read, brainstorm and discuss issues such as “brand.” Brand and branding is in the heart of social media policies. Campaigning with social media is also an issue, which was placed on the table this past week and will continue to be on the table this coming week. Respectively, your Evernote assignments offer you an opportunity to apply your ideas after the reading, brainstorming and discussion, into a hands-on solution of a global problem as well as another hands-on activity, which seeks a proof of your ability to handle YouTube as part of your social media strategy.

 

As in the past weeks, this weekly increment will continue to move in the following fashion:

  1. Read your articles, research and contribute with your own readings, if possible. Wed-Thursday. https://stcloudstate.learn.minnstate.edu/d2l/le/content/3980495/viewContent/33552370/View
  2. Discuss your findings in Facebook (brainstorming), Twitter (microblogging). Thursday-Friday. Respond, provide feedback to your peers. Friday-Saturday
  3. Complete the short class and home assignments in Evernote. Saturday-Sunday

week 7 (directions to collaboration and digital citizenship)

Week 7

Welcome to our seventh week of class.

Before we move toward the readings, discussions, and assignments for week 7, let’s overview quickly our week 6 activities.

Your activity on Facebook this week is commendable. I see some of you reaching for badges (bonus points). Please keep track of your badges to redeem them at the end of class.

Some of you have contacted me about their falling behind class assignments. To the rest of the class, please be as supportive as you can for those, who are trying to catch up with the rest of the class.

You need to maintain participation on FB, otherwise, you will be losing precious points. Let me know, if you have issues with your FB participation and I will help you overcome it.

Some of you are still missing to submit their January 31 first major step toward your final project and the Feb. 15 second major step toward your final project. If you are not working now toward your final project, you will not be able to deliver well thought-out product; start working on it by submitting the missing projects and working toward your first draft, due March 14.

 

This past week, we explored ways to organize information and turn it into knowledge.  Some of you were very eloquent both on Facebook and in your mini-paper about new tools and new methods. Great job. Be not afraid, or intimidated also to critique; social media is a science on its own, but also a science in its infancy and we need to be able to discuss both the positives and the negatives.

 

As in the past weeks, this weekly increment will continue to move in the following fashion:

  1. Read your articles, research and contribute with your own readings, if possible. Wed-Thursday. https://stcloudstate.learn.minnstate.edu/d2l/le/content/3980495/viewContent/33552361/View
  2. Discuss your findings in Facebook (brainstorming), Twitter (microblogging). Thursday-Friday. Respond, provide feedback to your peers. Friday-Saturday

    A word of support: by the Evernote assignments this week, you see that we are moving in the world of multimedia. Social Media IS about multimedia. For some, multimedia can be scary, uncomprehensive; but it also can be a lot of fun. If the first, please do contact me, or your peers and seek support in your endeavor, until you also start having fun.
  4. Post your mini paper in the D2L Discussion and provide feedback to your peers’ mini papers. Sunday-Monday.
