In today’s class we are going to talk about how to develop your digital identity using WordPress and Twitter. We’ll talk about what it means to be connected as a learner to help discover your major/career interests and support you during your academic career and beyond. For those of you who need the “HOW TO” guides, be sure to check out “About UGST 1000-03” page on this blog.

  • CREATE: WP Post #1: Introduce Yourself – in minimum 350 words, please take a minute to introduce yourself to the class. Include at ONE (1) photo of you and at least ONE (1) photo of your interests or something that reflects who you are.
  • PRESENT: Due: “Just Google It” Assignment – Each student will draw a name of someone in the class and asked to “Google” and search to learn more about them. In class, on 9/5 you will be required to give a 2 minute introduction of that person. Hint: Be sure to check out the Blog Roll on this website & READ their introduction post, too. 🙂
