Before the start of the #MANG2049 module, I was given the task to evaluate myself on the digital literacy. It is one of the way that will be beneficial to me in gauging where I am currently.
Below are the following results that I have gathered for myself:
|Rating at the start of module||Comments|
|Accessing, managing and evaluating online information||3||I am good in looking for documents or online resource. However, my weakness is that I am uncertain if what I found is credible.|
|Participating in online communities||1||Even though I am good in searching for things online, but I am quiet in terms of commenting on people’s item.|
|Building online networks around an area of interest||1||I do not have a network surrounding my interest as I am unsure of it. But I am interested in getting a network on the social media.|
|Collaborating with others||3||I’m good in collaborating with others as that is what my polytechnic teaches me in doing. Examples are collaboration using Google Docs and PowerPoint.|
|Creating online materials (text, audio, images, video)||2||I’ve created website design as well as programming during my polytechnic days as an IT student.|
|Managing your online identity||2||Since I am quiet in my social media, I believe that I am a silent user.|
|Managing your online privacy and security||3||In my social medias, I have set certain privacy filters so that my stuff are kept private.|
Looking at the results, I was shocked to find that I am actually being quite silent in my social network. Despite being good at certain components, I am actually weak in building relationships and networks on the social media.
Knowing where my weaknesses are at, I believe that with the guidance that I can get from my classmates as well as from the lectures, l will be able to improve my scores and be more social able through online medias. As of now, the score that I am getting is 15/35. My aim at the end of the module is to get 30/35.
