This section of the forum is VERY useful. Most students are 'internet savy' but kind of clueless about the how to extract the best use of the vast information available on the World Wide Web. I will start off with Elis Parisers Ted Talk and use what I feel are the three best postings, most of which are based on some sort of scavenger hunt.
I plan on making sure, first of all, that the students understand what the overarching goal of the lesson (days 5-7) is all about... That when using the web, for what ever purpose, they can identify which of the 3+ camps (or hybrids thereof) their interaction can be placed in (a Web 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 or 4.0 context). To do this, while processing through the Journal prompts, scavenger hunts (modified to engage my students for their local and interests , resource experimentations, and website evaluations (selecting some examples that are very engaging as they will have applications for other courses that the students will be taking), I will be asking them to classify the resource by 'Web' interaction type. So that they will know what a Web. 3.0 resource 'smells like' I will be providing them with some examples. They can be found on this Symbaloo 'webmix' < http://edu.symbaloo.com/mix/ecsunit1-hci34 > that I'm creating for Unit 1 in the "Web 3.0 Apps' folder. More will be added as I find them. I will also be adding some resources that will clue them in on what 'Web 4.0' might 'smell' like as well.
--- I will have my students in groups of 2-4 discuss the What, Where, When, Why, & How they use some of the Social Media that is currently available to them ie. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and list the many ways that it is being used.
--- I would ask them to share the Advantages (Positives) they see in having Social Media at almost anytime, and to share the Disadvantages (Negatives) they see in having Social Media at almost anytime.
--- I would have my students determine through discussion if Social Media is used the same or different by various demographic characteristics such as Age, Sex, Race, Educational Levels, Teen Years vs Adult Years vs Elderly/Senior Years.
--- Upon a review of the difference between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0, I would ask students to discuss and collaborate on what they think Social Media will look like in the immediate future 3- 5 years; mid term future 5-9 years; and longer term future 10 - 15 years with having them associate their age in the future, and how they feel Social Media will be the Same or Different for them in the future.
