Question Description

Instructions

Focusing on the themes and concepts in Units 5, 6, and 7, produce a learning object that teaches history from a communication perspective. You are given a choice of formats below. Your learning object should be a tool with which you can educate your peers about your learning.

  1. Choose any communication technology (for example, television, telephone, or Internet) that you have encountered.
  2. Outline what this technology enhances, reverses, obsolesces, and retrieves.
  3. Provide a rationale for your learning object. Put your ideas about the technology into contemporary context: Why is this an important or interesting topic? How does it relate to the lives of your audience/learners? Why should they know about it and about ideas in communication history? What have you learned in creating this learning object?

Choose one of the six following formats. If you would like to use another format, you must discuss it with your tutor before you begin your project.

  • develop a workshop for your peers
  • create a digital storybook or a graphic novel
  • create an instructional video
  • develop a website or a blog
  • write an article for publication in a magazine or e-zine
  • prepare a slide presentation for a Communication Technologies conference

Cite your sources meticulously. For this assignment, they will not necessarily be cited within the learning object itself, but you must submit a list of the references that you have used along with your learning object.

If creating a power point presentation, use as many slides as you need to tell your story, but typically 10–12 at the most. That depends of course how efficiently you are presenting your information. You can use bullet points or charts and/or other graphics to convey information, and of couse text but no more than 10 lines of easily-read font per page. So it’s really an exercise in teaching the important points of the topic and illustrating (or formatting) it creatively to catch your reader’s attention. Don’t try to cram an entire essay into the presentation! Imagine that you are the reader and know nothing about the subject but also know you are not going to just from this one presentation. Please discuss this with your tutor if you are still unsure of length or approach.

When you have completed your project, submit it to your tutor for marking and feedback, using this assignment drop box.

Once your tutor has reviewed your learning object, she or he will post it in the Presentation of Learning Objects forum, so that you can share your learning with your fellow students.

Before you begin this assignment, please review the AU Write Site’s information on Plagiarism.
