Week 1 : Activities

  • Activity 1, Meeting fellow students and your tutor: introducing yourself in the forum, reading messages and responding (up to an hour and a half, spread over two or three visits to the group forum).
  • Reading ‘Introducing H800’ and ‘A taste of H800’s themes’, and getting to know the website (about half an hour).
  • Activity 2, Sharing your reactions: forum discussion (about an hour).
  • Activity 3, How much changed when printing arrived? Reading an online newspaper article, ‘Thanks, Gutenberg – but we’re too pressed for time to read’; discussing it in the forum and doing some guided exploration on your own (between an hour and a half and two hours – depending on the forum discussion).
  • Activity 4, Generations of information seekers: finding out who in your group likes GoogleScholar, and who prefers to visit a library in person. Comparing your group with research findings on age-related differences, and spotting myths about the Google Generation (about two hours).
  • Activity 5, Are the ‘Net Generation’ great at multitasking? Listening to an interview with an academic who researched Australian students’ use of technologies – for example, how many have a blog, how many use social networking sites (of which Facebook is a current example)? Then reading a research paper by him and a colleague, about multitasking. This activity involves individual listening and reading, though you may, of course, discuss it in the forum. We’ve provided a transcript of the interview in case you prefer to read, or need to for reasons of accessibility (about an hour and a half).
  • Activity 6, The Google Generation: a crisis of information literacy? Optional activity: viewing a webcast from one of the authors of the report in Activity 4. Revising the topic while comparing your experiences of the webcast and written text. Individual study, not forums (between a few minutes and an hour; or you can omit this activity completely).
  • Activity 7, Setting up your computer for OU Live: installing the headset-plus-microphone and checking the sound levels in preparation for Week 2’s live voice discussions; using the forum to troubleshoot any difficulties (say, up to an hour).
  • Week 1’s activities formally total quite a bit less than 14 hours. That’s partly to give a bit of extra space for ‘Week 1 hassles’, and partly because people are still getting used to the module this week.
