Communication and community “In a few years, men will be able to communicate more effectively through a machine than face to face.” “What will on-line interactive communities be like?... They will be communities not of common location, but of common interest.” Licklider and Taylor, 1968

Asst: Join our Yahoo Group At CSUDH, IT sets up email lists, so I need their permission to do it. Anyone can set up a Yahoo group without permission. Which is best – pros and cons? CSUDH runs their own server for mail lists. Yahoo runs the Yahoo Groups server. Is it better to run things in house or to use an outside service like Yahoo – pros and cons?
The purpose of this assignment is to introduce Twitter, and to give you additional practice writing a short document. Look through my past posts, and pick one that sounds interesting. Follow the link or links to learn more. Write a short description of my tweet and state where it fits in our class outline. Asst: First Twitter experience
Asst: Review functional components of a computer There is still some confusion over the difference between storage and memory. Storage holds all your programs and data, memory only the ones you are currently working with. There have been many different memory technologies. There have been many different storage technologies. Some storage characteristics – capacity, cost, data transfer rate, power consumption, reliability, removable (yes/no), physical size. Name the input, output and storage devices on the computer inside a camera.
Asst: Prepare a well-written answer to Wesch’s questions Did you pay attention to the tips I gave for writing short documents? (http://cis275topics.blogspot.com/2010/09/writing-short- documents.html)http://cis275topics.blogspot.com/2010/09/writing-short- documents.html
I do not recognize myself in what he says - I thought that he is a quack in honesty. ----- I recognize myself as if Michael Wesch collaborated with me and got the information before his presentation. When I viewed the video and watched what Michael Wesch was speaking about it made me feel like he was talking about me. Honesty and disagreement
I think that listening to that talk was a waste of time because I really do not like hypocrisy. ----- Wesch is a person that I believe would be a great teacher. Did you like Michael Wesch?
Michael Wesch made me feel somewhat guilty and made me realize that many of us students just go to class just to get a grade. You can’t like all of your classes
I do not want to sound stupid. My confidence plays a key role in my nonparticipation. Some of the factors that prevent me from participating in class discussions are being uninterested, tired, and unprepared. it's really fear of being wrong. Why I don’t participate
As a student who has not successfully taken an online course I can say that online learning is for some students and not all. Technology is used in face-to-face classes
I may not be able to recall facts but I have gained enough skill in my education to resourcefully analyze and evaluate research. What will stick five years later?
When I hear a lecture, my mind wanders and I get lost trying to find my way back. I combat the mind-wandering by taking notes. I feel like I'm on the outside looking in; I'm not part of the experience. Most heartfelt comment What are strategies for avoiding this?
Skype GoTo meeting Chat Other tools I have used that we could use
I would also have to tell Wesch that I think all of this has come out of the need for institutions of education to quantify and rate how “successfully” the teachers have taught and the students have learned; this causes teachers to be focused on “learning objectives” rather than learning itself, then this mentality transfers to the students. Quantification is another underlying cause
Why do teachers ask questions in class? (Can you google the answer to this question)?
The role of memory-based questions What are the user controls for a car?
Why might I ask these questions? What are the three types of wireless communication in use on the Internet today? What are the functional components of a computer? What are the three types of Internet writing we will focus on? Who was instrumental in conceiving of and funding the PC, portable computer and Internet?
I use them for grading. They give you feedback -- they are study guides They remind you that you need to study the presentations and do the assignments. What do such questions achieve?
Quiz You did better on quizzes, but If the question asks how many are true, the answer is a number, no words. If you write teeny weeny any more – name or answers – I will ignore it. The questions have been posted.
Assignment numbers – no more slack Print it on top of the front page.
Asst. 8 – Propose a Yahoo Group Example: CSU Chancellor’s Office effort to create two focused pilot communities: Biology 101 professors at CSU campuses IT literacy professors at CSU campuses These are focused, identifiable constituencies motivated by a strong common interest. We will try to identify and invite all of them We hope they will get to know each other and share experiences and very specific, practical tips and teaching material.
Asst. 8 – Propose a Yahoo Group Some questions to consider for your group: Focused or broad topic? How will you find members? What is their motivation? Local to DH, our class? Are there related groups online already? Do you care and are you curious or is it just an assignment you have to do?
Asst. 9 – Rating and reputation 3 parts: 1.One click rating 2.Rate a professor 3.Critically review the ratings of a professor (do you take them at face value and how do you explain the variation?)
Asst. 10 – Google Docs WP Best class at CSUDH Which do you like better, Word or the Google Docs word processor? What are the pros and cons of network applications versus stand alone applications? Which does the future favor?
