We strongly recommend that you watch the following:
How Facebook Changed The World - The Arab Spring
The Virtual Revolution
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJWsCggAst4 Part 1 of 4, 2010 series
Us Now - Clay Shirky
Habermas’ “public sphere”
As part of your independent study, I will expect to see some notes / bullet points on at least 2 of these. For next week, you should focus on "How Facebook..." and the Habermas one. The rest is a bonus and you will watch some of The Virtual Revolution in school.
BRING YOUR FOLDERS NEXT THURSDAY WITHOUT FAIL. IT SHOULD BE PROPERLY ORGANISED IN 2 MAIN SECTIONS (one for each unit) WITH YOUR NOTES FROM LESSONS, HANDOUTS AND NOTES FROM INDEPENDENT STUDY (these could be a printout of what you put on your blog).
The Home learning tasks are:
- Complete your mini case study documentary and upload to your blog.
- Read the article I have handed out and complete the task set at the end of it.
Any problem, please ask me early rather than the night before.
Remember: "Aim high. Work hard."
