You’re going to do evals in class today. After that, meet in groups to discuss your blog posts this week. If you’re having trouble figuring out how to wind down the semester, give each other ideas for what to write about for your last blog post, blog post #12!
Semester of Social Media Presentations sign-up
Reflection: You will write a concluding “reflective essay” that will be due on the last day of class. This essay will be longer (1000-1250 words) and more “formal” in that I would like you to use this essay as an opportunity to make some sort of point or final observation about Social Media based on your engagement with it, our class readings, and our discussion.
For your presentation, figure out what sort of point or final observation you want to make about social media. You should tie 2 things together for this: our readings and class discussion about readings this semester (boyd, Jenkins, Crawford, Dean, Aoki Boyle & Jenkins, Lessig, Wysocki, McKee, Shipka) and your engagement on 4 social media sites (blog, twitter, 2 chosen sites). In your presentation, I would like you to show some of your activity, on your blog and through screen shots of your chosen sites. Use what you show to support your final point or observation about Social Media.
Finally, on each presentation day, we will catch up with the blogs of the people presenting. Choose one post that you’d like us to discuss in class. The class will read your post and come prepared with praise, questions, and suggestions for you.
