Humans R Social Media, Winter 2022 Open Textbook Edition book cover

Humans R Social Media, Winter 2022 Open Textbook Edition

CC BY (Attribution)  62 H5P Activities    English

Author(s): Diana Daly

Subject(s): Media studies, Information technology: general topics, Social media / social networking

Publisher: The iVoices Media Lab of the University of Arizona

Last updated: 13/10/2023

Social media and humans exist in a world of mutual influence, and humans play central roles in how this influence is mediated and transferred. Originally created by University of Arizona Information scholar Diana Daly, this Winter 2022 Edition of the book Humans R Social Media uses plain language, audio and video, embedded questions and active learning activities, and contributions by students to help readers actively understand how we as humans shape social media, and how social media shapes our world in turn. The authors and contributors examine digitally mediated identity, microcelebrity, and relationships through sociological and feminist perspectives, and visualize networked publics and online spaces using historic forms of communication. Dynamic coverage by Daly and contributors also examines the #metoo movement, Black Lives Matter, and conversations around race and radicalism. Most notably, the world of information is examined through simple explanations of algorithms, types of misinformation, and spreadable media including memes.  Designed for beginning college students, Humans are Social Media offers a unique, multimedia overview of social media in relationships with users and human cultures.

Integrating Immersive Technologies into Foreign Language Instruction: Case of Ukrainian Language and Culture book cover

Integrating Immersive Technologies into Foreign Language Instruction: Case of Ukrainian Language and Culture

CC BY-NC (Attribution NonCommercial)   English

Author(s): Betül Czerkawski

Subject(s): Language teaching and learning, Curriculum planning and development

Institution(s): University of Arizona

Publisher: University of Arizona

Last updated: 05/10/2023

Immersive technologies, such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and 360-videos are commonly used in education. According to a current literature review (Czerkawski & Ardito, 2021), however, immersive technologies are mostly used in medical and health sciences while they have the potential to benefit all academic disciplines through active learning experiences. For new technologies such as immersive technologies to be effective, instructors need to learn which tools to use, see examples of their uses in their subject matter areas, and understand the curricular integration processes.

The purpose of this e-book is to discuss immersive technologies in the context of intercultural competence and language instruction to inspire and revamp L2 learning environments. Although the book is intended for all language instructors, technology integration examples are drawn from the Ukrainian language and culture to promote this less commonly taught language.
