Web Quest – Week 8
Posted by LibeRaCe on August 4, 2008
Welcome intrepid Web 2.0 adventurers!
You did it, you have now reached Week 8! Here you’ll get to socialise and network with your fellow adventurers.
Your challeges this week:
Task 1: Find out more about Social Networking with the Quest tutorial. How would you define a social networking site? What does social networking mean in the real world? Have a look at Facebook, MySpace and Bebo. These sites provide essentially the same service, but look very different. How easy was it to find personal information about strangers? Why was this and what can you do to protect your identity?
Task 2: Set up a Facebook account and join a group. The Library staff will be using a Facebook group to communicate – have you received your invitation yet? See the LRC del.ici.ous/llandrillo_library for links to staying safe online (under Citizenship and ICT categories and the be_safe_online tag).
Don’t forget, you need to record your achievements in your blog!
If you need more help, ask your colleagues by leaving a comment on this post or check out the guides on the Library Moodle page.
