Week Two Understanding Digital Citizenship Worksheet Student Name: Randi Schofield Purpose: Use this worksheet to identify and demonstrate good digital citizenship skills. Prepare: Read Section 4.1 in Module 4 and review the Netiquette Rules found in the Course Policies, About Discussions area of your classroom . Write: Below there are three scenarios. Read each of the scenarios and answer the questions below. Scenario #1 Miguel is a full-time online student, a full-time employee, and a father. He finds that he is constantly struggling with balancing all of his responsibilities and is trying to figure out a way to manage his time wisely. He is only in his third class and has already submitted assignments late. Trying to complete his assignments has been stressful and when he does manage to submit his work on time, he is working on it up until the last minute. Miguel has a three-page paper to write for his class tonight. He just sat down to work on it at 9:00 p.m. He had hoped to take the instructor’s feedback from last week and use it to improve his work on this assignment; however, because it is so late, he already feels that he won’t have time to submit his work at the level of quality the professor is looking for. He feels pressured and stressed. To complete the paper, Miguel has to do some research on the topic. Since he has not yet taken the time to explore the library, he believes it would take too long to use this as a research tool. Therefore, he decides to Google the topic for his paper. He pulls up several websites, and finds plenty of information that he can use. Because he is running out of time to complete his paper, he decides to copy the information he has found (without citing ) and after changing just a few words, he submits his paper on time.

In complete sentences, respond to the following: 1) In at least three sentences, describe how Miguel’s actions do not align with being a good digital citizen. First and foremost, it sounds as though Miguel is a bit unorganized. Miguel could have avoided this type of overwhelming situation had he prepared a little bit more before starting his program. Now that he has started and plans to finish, he is not showing good digital citizenship, by not planning things out and waiting until the last minute. Also, being that he is trying to bunch everything all together are the last minute, it is causing him to plagiarize his papers at this point. With all of this being said, Miguel shows a lot of different symptoms of bad digital citizen, because he is not being authentic in his work, and is trying to take the easy way out. Miguel is not being fair to his instructor by submitting assignments so late and expecting his instructor to rush his feedback. He has to be a good

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
