After Post #6, Submit Your Blog URL to Canvas

Hello all – Please submit your blog URL to Canvas after you finish Post #6. I cannot assign points in the rubric until I have a URL submitted!

It should be the top level URL of your blog. For example:

@trishcampbell is https://ischoolblogs.sjsu.edu/info/travelsmart/

Reflective Posts:

Blog Post #2: Describe the Information Community you are choosing to explore for the course and the research paper. Utilize Durrance and Fisher’s definition and characteristics of Information Communities to describe your choice to the class.

Blog Post #3: Report on the information-seeking behavior and information needs of chosen community. Utilize theories covered in the lectures and assigned readings. Cite the research you’ve found so far concerning your chosen community.

Blog Post #4: Summarize one of the peer-reviewed articles relating to your information community you’ve found. Briefly describe the author’s credentials,  the scope of the study, the methodology, and findings of the piece. What insights will inform your literature review and research paper?

Blog Post #5: Report on an ethical or legal issue pertaining to your information community. Use your research and the modules on ethical issues and intellectual freedom as resources to define and reflect on the issue.

Blog Post #6: Create a media-based artifact (infographic, video, audio, etc) from your research and explorations of your community’s use of emerging technologies. How do they use technology to advance the community or share information? Be as creative as you’d like!

    @michael I am very confused regarding the difference between submitting two links for grades. The Turn in Reflection Blogging and the Commenting, Engagement and Participation in Course Blogging Community. I have read and reread the ‘instructions’ and I still don’t understand the difference. Please explain in different words as I am not understanding how it is written. Thanks!

    @michael I have already submitted my link but when I went to my community blog today to approve a comment, my layout is changed. It’s different and my image header that was a book is now a women. I hope this doesn’t mess anything up for your grading. Very weird!

        I remembered wrong, I had no header there before but the theme changed to a very different layout and added a header. I was able to change the theme but not to how I had it originally.

            I actually don’t remember what the theme was called. The one I have now I think will work OK and my post all look OK. Just very strange and I worried my account got hacked for a minute. It doesn’t appear to have but I will change my password to be safe.

            Thank you!
