Freedom of Expression Project – Week 1

Welcome to the Freedom of Expression Project!  Before we get started a couple of notes…
Freedom of Expression
Each week, you will be asked to submit questions or vote on issues by a deadline!  As you are working with people in other countries, you must stick to these deadlines!

You will be discussing issues online.  That means you need to observe the internet etiquette that we already are familiar with at YIS.

In tutor class this week, you need to do the following.  For each step, I’ve given you how long you should spend on it.  Don’t spend the whole period creating a profile and then find you have to do the rest of the lesson at home!  Now let’s get started!

#1  Login and Create Your Profile – 5 minutes

You should have been sent an email with your login and password details for Nodebook. This is the platform you will use to work with students from all over the world.  Problems with logging on, please come and see me.

#2  Watch the video – 10 minutes

Watch the video with your group in tutor.  There is a discussion question at the end and you can talk about that with your group.

#3  Questionnaire – 5 minutes

Fill out the baseline questionnaire.  This is just to see what you already know about the issue.

#4  Case Studies – 15 minutes

There are two short case studies.  You need to read both of them and then post a question or response in your team’s online discussion.

#5  Word Map – 5 minutes

Individually, think of 9 words that could go on the word map for your team and post them.

Homework – 15 minutes

Work individually to come up with three questions about Freedom of Expression that you are interested in finding the answers to.  You need to submit them by the deadline posted on Nodebook.

After the deadline has passed, you will see everyone’s questions and you have to vote on the three most interesting questions.  They could be yours or someone else’s.  Check the deadline for the vote!

Spend 5 minutes putting and entry into your learning log for week 1.
