Activity 1: Collaborating through GoogleDoc (Document & PowerPoint)

Note: You are going to carry out this activity with your fingers talking only...

You are going to read an email where "Rules of Netiquette" have been broken. You will also spot the non-standard forms used in spelling and punctuation.

As a group,

Part 1
  • Leader - Click HERE to download the email and share it out with your group members.
  • Use features like comments, colour text, etc.. to mark out areas that you think where the "Rules of Netiquette" has broken and edit text where words are mis-spelled. You would also make suggestions how to re-word the sentence or part of the sentence.
  • Remember: Everyone in the team must leave your 'digital footprint' in the document!
  • A representative of the group will "publish" the document and post the hyperlink in this blog. [Note: You have been invited to co-author this blog]
Part 2

  • Discuss... What are some good pointers for students to remember, to practise good netiquette when sending email? List down about 8-10 pointers.
  • Present the pointers in a PowerPoint - with appropriate elaboration/images.
  • On the cover page, give a Title to the presentation slides. Include names of your members, too.
  • Delegate the last slide to acknowledge the resources used or referred to for this presentation.
  • Remember: Everyone in the team must work contribute at least an item on the slide... Do not delegate one person to complete the slides then upload.
  • A representative of the group will "publish" the powerpoint presentation and embed the powerpoint presentation in this blog (in the same post from Part 1 of the activity).
