For this assessment you must make a journal entry that summarises and reflects upon the ways that you have found the theories in the introductory topic and ‘cyberidentity and cybercommunity’ module to be applicable to ‘real’ life. There is no set question for this assessment. In this way, you have some flexibility in terms of how you want to structure your assessment depending upon what information you found to be stimulating, thought provoking or controversial. If you are not sure how to begin your entry, you might like to use the questions listed under ‘What is a reflection?’ (below) to structure your entry.
HOWEVER, before you do this, you must make at least one other entry in your journal. This entry can be based on any of the learning activities you have been set for this module. The reason for this is so that you can familiarise yourself with using the journal before submitting your assessable reflective journal entry.
This reflective journal entry is intended to help you consider your own experiences and circumstances, but it also requires you to reflect on the prescribed readings, learning materials and the discussion threads so that you incorporate the ideas and reflections of others as well. It is expected that you will refer to yourself in the first person I to demonstrate that you have reflected on the material.
What is a reflection?
When you Reflect’ upon an issue, it means that you introduce your views on a topic based on your own experiences and observations and discuss how your views may have changed as a result of reading and discussing material related to the introductory topic and first module.
Some questions that you may like to consider:
*What is your own reaction to the issues/themes presented in the introductory topic and first module? Why?
*Did your opinion of the topic change in light of the reading you have done for the introductory topic and first module?
*Did any questions come up in your mind because of points made in material you read?
*Can you connect your response to current events in the media in Australia or abroad related to the introductory topic or first module?
Remember, you only have 1200 words, so we recommend that you re-read and edit (where necessary) your assessable journal entry before the due date. Spelling, grammar and expression are all necessary parts of this assessment.
Please also be aware that although you are strongly encouraged to incorporate your own thoughts/opinions on the material in your entry, you are also required to include in-text references and a bibliography for all scholarly material/readings that you cite in your entry. Please use Harvard citation style. Do not use footnotes (Oxford). They will not format properly online. Details of referencing styles can be accessed at www.deakin.edu.au/referencing
If you would like to cite comments made by a fellow student in this unit from the discussion threads, this is strongly encouraged. You can do this in your entry by listing: (Student name, Date). Don’t worry about providing bibliographic entries for student comments.
Each student has access to their own journal. It is a private journal, which means that only the student and teaching staff can access their own journal
