A note on hybrid activity scheduling:
Per my conversation with the Wednesday class last week, I’ll be adjusting to a schedule for collaborative activities that begins on the Monday they are announced and continues until the following Wednesday (a total of 10 days). There is a big plus and minor minus to this adjustment. The plus is that everyone has more time to complete an activity. The minus is that sometimes there might be multiple activities happening at the same time (for example, if I assign something on one Monday and then the next Monday, students will have to concentrate on completing the first thing by the second Wednesday while at the same time starting up the next week’s work). Please let me know if you have questions/feedback about this.
This week we will discuss:
- Finding academic articles through KSU library and assessing for relevancy
- Keeping up with at least one stream of Georgia General Assembly media (AJC, Politically Georgia, #gapol, House and Senate websites, and/or House and Senate social media accounts).
- Registering for an account with our Curate Georgia General Assembly and using it as a sandbox space for learning how to compose content. (Click here; select “Register”; register with first initial last name as your username [like this: prorabaugh] and your KSU student email as your address; you might find the confirmation email in your spam folder, but be sure to respond to it).
Our activity for this week: (due Feb. 21)
- Build a post titled with your first and last name.
- Use it to take notes on one of the Georgia GA media accounts throughout the week (at least 5 updates of 100 words or less; date each one).
- Practice embedding social media within those notes.
- Select an academic article relevant to class, link to it, and discuss its relevance to the class (150-200 words).
