Starting Monday August 6, 2012, all staff (and some doctoral students!) in the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University are together undertaking a 12 week project in developing digital literacy. Each week we will be completing a task to develop a skill, explore an idea or master a set of tools.
This Scoop.it is a collection of resources used in the project.
This survey has interesting information on young people's use of the internet and social media.
93% use social networking sites at least once a week
91% use instant messaging.
Text messaging and mobile phones are used by 88% and 86% respectively.
Social networking sites are used at least once a day by 87% of all students. Facebook was the most commonly used social networking site (91% of students). YouTube was regularly used by 82% and Instagram was regularly used by 49% of students
How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?
