Presentation Guidelines - Part One

In this assignment you are to read a scholarly article on computer-mediated communication and give a 5 to 7 minute presentation to the class.

This assignment is individually graded using the rubric that follows.

You are to read the article that you selected from the online web site.

As you read the article make note of what the research question is, how it was investigated (method), and the findings of the study.

Your presentation will focus on the highlights of the article, and a novel application of the findings to the real life CMC. You might want to revisit the Blooms Taxonomy question starters for Application to get an idea of the type of questions you should ask yourself to get at the application.

Your presentation should have a good attention getter to start (not, I had to read this article and this is what it says).

Next you’ll give the highlights of the article. Deal with the reasons they conducted the study. What questions were they trying to answer? Give the brief description of what you think are key findings. This probably account for about 30 to 40% of the total time of the presentation.

Next, you need to apply these findings in a novel way. How would someone go about using these findings in everyday life. This section accounts for about 60 to 70% of the presentation
