Class Activity – Digital Citizenship

3 different sources of evidence (e.g. a blog post, a journal article, youtube video etc.) for each of the two topics listed below (6 in total).

Try to find as many different kinds of sources of evidence as you can but try to find at least two sources which you think might be ‘academic papers/articles.

Source 1 – Digital citizenship – Article:

URL:  

https://thejournal.com/articles/2014/05/07/digital-citizenship-in-the-real-world.aspx

Search Terms:

inurl:article digital citizenship

How:

found searching on google: inurl:article digital citizenship

Who:

The article is obviously written by or for some sort of journalist publication

googling Stephan Noonoo (author) i found some social media profiles for a tech writer and because his name is quite unique i assume he is in fact the owner those profiles.

When:

05/07/14

What:

ADiscusses the need for a type of ‘digital driver’s license’ for young people adapting to the IT age.

How credible:

There are no con’s of the ideas he talks about although he does go over the challenges that could be faced. It has many opinion-based points but for the type of publication that’s expected. Weighing up the writer’s credentials as well as content i would say this is a credible article.

Source #2 – Digital Citizenship – VIDEO:

URL:

Search Terms:

inurl:youtube digital citizenship video

How:

^^

Who:

Youtube channel ‘common sense education’

What:

A YouTube video explaining digital citizenship for young ones.

When:

14 July, 2015

 

How credible:

The Youtube channel seems to be an educational one with links to the org’s website which contains a bunch of further resources. Multiple presenters are featured in videos on the channel and it seems to receive good ratings & has a decent amount of subscribers for a boring channel. Overall i’d say they’re credible, keeping in mind they are explaining things in a simplified way for a younger audience. Interestingly, the blog post i source below refers to this org which adds some credibility.

 

Source #3 – Digital Citizenship – Blog post

https://www.edutopia.org/blog/digital-citizenship-resources-matt-davis

Search Terms:

blog digital citizenship

How:

found searching on google

Who:

 

Matt Davis, looks like he publishes education related blog posts & articles.

When:

Oct 16 2016

What:

Explains very much the same stuff in the youtube video while referencing their website.

How credible:

The author seems credible. He’s been employed in education and has a number of blog posts. One point to make is that he is not an expert in this particular topic, he simply blogs about a wide range of educational material. That being said, he doesn’t go into too much detail and makes sure to reference other peoples work.

 

Source #1 – Virtualization Technology – article

Thomas Burger

About The Author

Thomas Wolfgang Burger is the owner of Thomas Wolfgang Burger Consulting. He has been a consultant, instructor, writer, analyst, and applications developer since 1978. He can be reached at twburger@gmail.com.

This article gives us credentials, contact address which is good. It doesn’t specify whether he works for or has worked for Intel – whose site the article is featured on.

When:

March 5 2012

What:

Provides info about what virtualization is and what Intel is doing to improve & optimize it with their tech

How credible:

The author seems to have credible credentials and is definitely knowledgeable on the subject, but i did find the article to be quite bias because it focused almost solely on Intel tech – which you’d expect from an article posted on Intel’s own site.  It doesn’t specify whether the author works for Intel or has before. While 2012 seems recent, for an exploding technology like virtualization it is quite old news. For virtualization, i wouldn’t look at a 2012 article for anything other than if i was trying to get a basic idea of what virtualization is.

 

Source #2 – Virtualization Technology – Video

URL:

Search Terms:

Virtualization tech youtube

How:

found searching on google

Who:

An anonymous YouTube user but sources their org for creation of the video

When:

Jan 13, 2011

What:

Gives a basic overview of what virtualization is for complete newbies

How credible:

The creator has an unidentifiable youtube name but links his organization which seems legitimate and deals with virtualization, although it isn’t an org i’ve heard of. The video gives a good deal of knowledge which i could see as being quite useful for first year students trying to understand the basic idea of virtualization. Virtualization is a tech that is changing very quickly, but because the video is only explaining the basic ideas without going much into specific technologies, i’d say the 2011 upload date is not too big of a deal.

When:

06/17/2016

What:

Provides info – opinion and facts – about how virtualization has changed data centres

How credible:

Many areas of up and coming IT tech have 1-2 go-to blogs which are seen as places for enthusiasts/people in the industry to get unbiased info about providers & related technologies. Sometimes what happens is they tend to favor a particular provider – paid to or not – and the blogs come out pretty biased. From looking over Tom’s blog and mainly his reviews – it looks like Tom is very well received by his fairly sizable follower base. As for the specific blog post i’m reviewing, i didn’t find any bias in it. Certainly a blog i will be looking at more in my own time since i’m interested in virtualization tech.
