weekly reflections – Week 5

Week 5 Topic: Digital Information
What type of digital information is being presented and can you trust it?

Weekly reflection…
Digital information is any information that is conveyed electronically, through electronic devices. The most informative and reliable information comes direct from the source; Pandora, the National Digital Archives, the state or federal government bodies, and research departments that are long established.

Having now learned to be a critical thinker (Critical thinking, 2014), through analysis and research, it is easier to decipher the jargon from the facts and am able to select information more carefully from reputable writers.

The weekly activity included using a rubric to mark peers pinterest boards made on Digital Technology that helped understand the rubric assessment process. Pinterest is a collaborative, graphic, social media platform, a fantastic curating tool utilizing data visualization (Pinterest Inc, n.d.).   As an avid pinterest user my boards now contain more useful information after this week’s activity.
