Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes
The Curricular Unit intends students to reflect and develop skills around the digital world and its tools, specially with regard to forms of communication using digital media, and, in particular, those available on the Internet.
New ways of being and working in the digital world are approached around the development of some concrete example, using digital tools.
The work processes comprise: (a) carrying out practical tasks to deepen relevant aspects of the tools of general use; (b) research of information in different sources, namely on the Internet; (c) data collection and its organization, treatment and (d) elaboration of a project integrating technologies on a relevant topic; (e) reading and discussion of topics associated with the use of digital resources in daily life; (f) presentation of projects using appropriate computer tools; (g) use of communication tools and content management platforms for publishing information and collaboration.
Demonstration of the teaching methodologies coherence with the curricular unit's intended learning outcomes
The work components to be developed in the curricular unit provide work environments with diversity and multiplicity of situations. Students who participate in this unit must carry out individual and group activities, which will allow, on the one hand, the appropriation of theoretical concepts and the knowledge of computer tools, and on the other hand, the development of individual skills and teamwork.
Reading and discussing texts will allow students to acquire theoretical knowledge, practical activities will allow the acquisition of skills in the use of the appropriate software for each case and in the context of the course.
