Lesson 1 Weeks 1-2

What is Information and Communications Technology (ICT)?

GOAL
At the end of the 2-week period, you will be able to independently compose
an insightful reflection paper on the nature of ICT in the context of your lives,
society, and chosen professional (i.e. Arts, Technical Vocational, Sports, and
Academic Tracks) track.

Take a quick look at the page containing the Glossary of Terms to get a
glimpse of what ICT and related concepts are.
What do these mean to you?
So do you think you are ready for the Networked World? Or better yet, is
your community ready for the Networked World?

Search anything about Information and Communications Technology (ICT) or


digital tools2 that interest you. Find out the latest about them or something
similar to them that you have used so far. Be ready to share them in class
using traditional learning tools, e.g. pen and paper, or via ICT tools, e.g.
online.

Your search, ideally done online, should take you on an exploration about:
1. The current state of ICT tools (i.e., Web 2.0, Web 3.0, convergent
technologies, social, mobile, and assistive media).
2. Online systems, functions, and platforms

CHALLENGE QUESTION

A survey called Networked World Readiness contains 5 categories,


namely: Access, Learning, Society, Economy, and Policy.

Which category is most important to you?

As you continue your work using this Student Reader, you may realize that
digital tools, such as those appearing in the following image would give you
an idea of the range of possibilities to discover, disclose, connect, and co-
create, in a Networked World.

is a generic term used to refer to a group of software or hardware
devices by which people with disabilities can access computers.
Assistive Media is also a name of a company: the Internet's first audio

with disabilities who now use the Internet.

2. Collaborative platforms - is a category of business software that adds


broad social networking capabilities to work processes.

3. Convergent Technologies - an extension of the term convergence,


which means a coming together of two or more disparate disciplines
or technologies. For example, the so-called fax revolution was
produced by a convergence of telecommunications technology, optical
scanning technology, and printing technology. Convergent
Technologies also refers to an American computer company formed by
a small group of people who left Intel Corporation and Xerox PARC in
1979.

4. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) - ICT is an


umbrella term that includes any communication device or application,

the various services and applications associated with them, such as
videoconferencing and distance learning. ICTs are often spoken of in a
particular context, such as ICTs in education, health care, or libraries.
The term is somewhat more common outside of the United States. It
may also be defined as, Information and Communication Technologies
(ICT or ICTs) are digital forms of communication including tools
available on the Internet, such as blogging and email, as well as
computer software, such as Microsoft PowerPoint and Word4.

5. Mobile Media - This refers to media devices such as mobile phones
and PDAs were the primary source of portable media from which we
could obtain information and communicate with one another. More
recently, the smartphone (which has combined many features of the

DiNucci in 1999.

9. Web 3.0 - a phrase coined by John Markoff of the New York Times in
2006, refers to a supposed third generation of Internet-based services
that collectively comprise what might be called the intelligent Web
such as those using semantic web, microformats, natural language
search, data-mining, machine learning, recommendation agents, and
artificial intelligence technologieswhich emphasize machine-
facilitated understanding of information in order to provide a more
productive and intuitive user experience.

This statement is a simile, a literary device for comparing two unlike things.
For instance, someone who does not use much media might say that her
media life is like a desert, because there is little life there. Someone might say
that his media life is like a track meet, because he is exhausted at the end of

Now, consider the following statement.

Instead of promoting social


behavior, social media
promotes disengagement,
self-absorption, loneliness
and sadness.

Do you agree?11

Now think about this: Social media or media enabled by digital tools are 24/7
and socially connected as demonstrated by popular ICT.

Lesson 3 Weeks 1-2

Contextualized Online Search and Research Skills

GOAL
At the end of the lesson, you will be a better user of search engines. In
particular, you can be more deeply aware of search techniques that will give
results that are useful for your academic and chosen career.

CHALLENGE QUESTIONS

Are you a smarter user of search engines?

Do you always rely on the first search results online?

Have you Googled14 yourself lately? Are you happy with the results?

How do you find answers to questions from the simple to the complex?

Google might naturally come to mind. Did you know that you could also
use Wolfram as an alternative search engine?

Indeed, Google might be our friend but using search engines for the sake of
plain information could actually lead you misinformed. In order to stay
meaningfully informed, you should start appreciating the use of the right
combination of words or key phrases.

The following is a set of tips to help you build smart search skills, as adapted
from Common Sense Media.

A wealth of built-inbut sometimes hiddenfeatures can help you find the


information you need much more efficiently than your usual shot-in-the-dark
searches. A little Google technique can open up a world of trusted facts,
homework boosters, and cool tricks to impress your friends (or your parents).

14 Search online using Google.com

A. Find the Hidden Calculator

If number crunching just isn't your thingand you need an answer fast
Google's hidden calculator is a lifesaver. Head straight to the search bar
and type in the problem or equation you're looking to solve. You'll know
you've gotten to the right place when a gray, calculator-like tool pops up
as the search result.

Bonus tip: How many teaspoons equal a tablespoon? When the


homework is put away and you need an extra hand at the Chemistry lab,
this tool converts measurements, too.

B. Definitions and More

Browsing the Merriam-Webster dictionary for hours might be a lost art, but
broadening kids' vocabulary doesn't have to be. Simply add the word
"define" before a search term (for example, define onomatopoeia) to
bring up the proper spelling, definition, origin, and even fun tools like voice
and translation options.

Bonus tip: If you struggle with spelling, don't worry. Google will suggest

18

electronic or mechanical including photocopying without written permission from the DepEd Central Office. First Edition, 2017.
and search based on the appropriate spelling of most words, just as it
does for regular searches.

C. Age-Appropriate Results

Tools like Google SafeSearch15 and YouTube's Safety Mode16 can help
filter out mature content that's beyond what those below 18 are ready to
see or read. This can also be taken a step further with search results filter
by reading level so you or your younger siblings or friends feel comfortable
with what's in front of them. Let Google annotate the results with reading
levels labeled, or choose to only show basic, intermediate, or advanced
level content.

If you are looking for credible informationor your first taste of scholarly
researchyou can check out Google's academic offshoot, Google
Scholar.17
Bonus tip: Explore with confidence18 by viewing content critically. Just
because you see it online doesn't mean it's true.

D. Time-Zone Challenged

If you have far-flung family and dont want to wake them up in the middle
of the night, you can find the local time anywhere in the world by typing
"time" and a city's name into the search bar.

E. The Perfect Search

Lets say the homework assignment requires you to use only one source
of information. Enter your query, followed by the URL for the website (i.e.,
weaving site: ncca.gov.ph/) and hit enter. You'll see only results from that
website.

Need help with weaving homework but getting search results for weaving
for sale? Add a minus sign before "sale" to eliminate sale-related results.

F. Photo Magic

Learning how to attribute photos is a critical research skill. With Google


Reverse Image Search19, you can upload any photo to Google Images
and hit "search" to find the name of it, and a whole lot more.

Bonus tip: In Google's Chrome browser, you can just right-click on any
image and select "search Google for this image." There's a Firefox add-
on20, too.

G. Just for Fun

If all you really need is a little distraction, go to Google and type in "tilt,"
browse the Google Doodle archives21, or just tell Google to do a barrel
roll.22 You won't be disappointed. 23

If you want some more keyword tricks, check out the search techniques
below.

TRIVIA/SEARCH QUERY TIPS

1. Define. When your query includes the define: operator, Google


displays all the definitions it finds on the web.

2. Site. If you really like a web site (e.g. http://ncca.gov.ph) but its search
tool isnt very good, fret notGoogle almost always does a better job .
Example: [site:ncca.gov.ph culture]

3. Reverse Image search. Instead of typing the keywords, you upload an


image of an unknown product or point to its URL in the search box or
bar. Useful to find product names, recipes, and more

Lesson 4 Weeks 3-4

Developing ICT content for specific purposes


The use of advanced tools and techniques found in common productivity and
application software in developing ICT content for specific professional tracks.

GOAL
At the end of the 2-week period, you will be able to independently apply
advanced productivity tools to create or develop ICT content for use in
specific professional tracks. These may be in the form of, but not limited to:

1. Calculating spreadsheet of athletic statistics (Sports);


2. Layouting the catalogue of creative works (Arts);
3. Materials/ingredients projections for batches of baked goods (Tech
Voc);
4. Letterhead/business card designs (Business/ Academic) that are
useful for your academic and chosen career.

CHALLENGE QUESTION

What was your earliest memory of productivity tools?

Hint: They usually come as a suite of computer applications that serve


reporting requirements containing textual, numerical, and presentation
functions.

Three basic functions of digital tools are generally combined to support


decisions in business or management, and in communication contexts. These
3 basic tools support writing, numeracy and presentation skills.

In earlier ICT-related courses or academic subjects, these tools find


expression in essays, book reports, and newsletters, as well as in
presentation of ideas contained in a deck of digital slides.

To help you build on your prior skills using those productivity tools, you shall
explore them separately and work towards combining them in a given
technology-enabled scenario.

Following is a screenshot of LibreOffice, a Free and Open Source Productivity


Suite, which matches and perhaps could even exceed the overall features,
advantages, and benefits of their paid counterpart:

The prescribed tools and techniques are listed below in the context of
situational use-cases along with the respective resources:

Advantages of Mail Merging The advantages of using mail merge are:
Only one document needs to be composed for communicating to an extensive list of interested people,
clients or customers.
Each document can be personalized i.e. it appears to be have been written specifically to each
recipient. It contains details only relevant to the receiver.
Many document formats can be developed to use with one database.
Errors in transcribing details from one document to another are eliminated. This advantage, of course,
depends upon the accuracy of data entry into individual records in the first place!

27
Whenever used appropriately, slide animations are similar to transitions, but they are applied to individual
elements on a single slidea title, chart, image, or individual bullet point. Animations can make a
presentation more lively and memorable. Just as with transitions, heavy use of animations can be fun, but
distracting and even annoying for an audience expecting a professional presentation.

TRIVIA/ADVANCED PRODUCTIVITY TIPS

1. Mail merging means to plug data from an address table into form
letters, e-mail messages, envelopes, address labels, or a directory
(Example: a parent list or product catalog, for example).

2. Hyperlinks - Hyperlinks are objects inside an electronic document that


include the location of another object. Hyperlinks use the hypertext
transfer protocol, the same protocol that drives connections on the
World Wide Web, to electronically point users to documents and files
stored in another location. When a user clicks on a hyperlink, the
computer uses the information in the link to locate and load the
external resource.

3. Free and Proprietary Software | Feature Comparison: LibreOffice -


Microsoft Office, available here:

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Feature_Comparison:_LibreOffice

ACTIVITY

1. Your teacher/instructor will give you activities that will allow you to use
common productivity tools effectively by maximizing advanced application
techniques in the given context of your professional track.

2. To build on that, you will also be guided by your teacher/instructor to


create an original or derivative ICT content to effectively communicate or
present data or information related to your track.

CHALLENGE QUESTION

You may have heard a word that sounds like pabmat. Can you guess
what it is?

OK, it is spelled as pubmat and is understood to mean a collection of


visual content that is used to promote an idea, concept, event, product or
service. One application software that is proprietarywhich means you
need to buy the software to use it because it is owned by an individual or
company who developed it.

In this part of the course you will be expected to demonstrate your ability to
use digital tools to produce materials for printing, posting, and at some later
point in the course, uploading images online.

In the earlier years, or sometime in the 1990s, creating a web page or a


website was a skill that required a mind of a computer programmer, working
on standard lines of computer code that need to be memorized to produce a
basically flat but colorful document.

Nowadays it is so much easier that a high school student with enough
creativity could assemble textual and visual parts that are already interactive
and fun to the user. Moreover, websites have evolved into tools and platforms
for discovery, sharing, connection, and co-creation.

These online social platforms currently include, but are not limited to:
1. Presentation/ visualization (Prezi, Zoho, Slideshare, mindmeister)
2. Cloud computing (Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox)
3. Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr)
4. Web Page Creation (Wix, Weebly)
5. File Management and Filetype conversion (zamzar, word2pdf)
6. Mapping (Google Maps, Wikimapia)

ACTIVITY

With your teachers guidance, you can start exploring online platforms for
expression of mission statements of social impact organizations. On
deeper reflection, you should be better skilled by now in online search
using relevant keywords in this activity. Likewise, from a technical and
skills perspective you should be able to do the following:
1. Evaluate existing online creation tools, platforms and applications in
developing ICT content for specific professional tracks
2. Apply web design principles and elements using online creation
tools, platforms, and applications to communicate a message for a
specific purpose in your professional track.
3. Create an original or derivative ICT content using online creation
tools, platforms, and applications to effectively communicate
messages related to your professional track.

TIPS: WHAT IS AN ADVOCACY?

Advocacy is active promotion of a cause or principle.


Advocacy involves actions that lead to a selected goal.
Advocacy is one of many possible strategies, or ways to approach a
problem.
Advocacy can be used as part of a community initiative, nested in with
other components.
Advocacy is not direct service.
Advocacy does not necessarily involve confrontation or conflict.

Some examples may help clarify just what advocacy is:

You join a group that helps build houses for the poorthat's wonderful,
but it's not advocacy (it's a service)
You organize and agitate to get a proportion of apartments in a new
development designated as low to moderate income housingthat's
advocacy
You spend your Saturdays helping sort out goods at the recycling
centerthat's not advocacy (it's a service)
You hear that land used for the recycling center is going to be closed
down and you band together with many others to get the city to
preserve this site, or find you a new one. Some of you even think about
blocking the bulldozers, if necessarythat's advocacy

Advocacy usually involves getting government, business, schools, or some


other large institution (also known as Goliath) to correct an unfair or harmful
situation affecting people in the community (also known as David, and
friends). The situation may be resolved through persuasion, by forcing Goliath
to buckle under pressure, by compromise, or through political or legal action.

Excerpt: The technological gains of the last several decades lie at the
core of staggering new surges of wealth and well-being within the richest
countries of the world. Electronic commerce and related applications of
information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become
tremendous engines for economic growth and productivity and are
changing the shape of the world in which we live. Yet the developed world
is reaping the vast majority of these gains.

It is our view that the appropriate use of information and communication


technologies can also improve the lives of the 80% of the world's
population that lives in the developing world.

The great divide between rich and poor countries, long observed with
regard to economic wealth and social conditions, is equally prevalent and
worrisome in the realm of information and communication technologies.
While the growth of the Internet and the continuing "digitalization of
society" are much-heralded events in more developed countries, many
leaders in developing nations are left wondering how they can participate
in the rapid changes going on around them. How can ICTs help their
businesses, governments and communities become more productive?
How do they get ready for the Networked World?

around the web.

How reverse image search works


When you search using an image, your search results may include:
Similar images
Sites that include the image
Other sizes of the image you searched for

Search using an image works best when the image is likely to show up
in other places on the web. So you'll get more results for famous
landmarks than you will for personal images like your latest family
photo.

Reverse image search using your computer


You can search using an image on these computer browsers:
Chrome 5+
Safari 5+
Firefox 4+

Upload an image
Visit images.google.com or click the camera icon in the search
box on any Images results page .
Click Upload an image.
Click Choose file.
Select the image from your computer.

Drag & drop an image into the search box


If you're on Chrome or Firefox 4+, you can drag an image from your
computer into the search box.
Visit images.google.com.
On your computer, click the image you want to search for.
While holding down the mouse, drag the image into the search
box.

Search using an image URL


On any website, right-click an image and select Copy image URL.
Visit images.google.com or click the camera icon in the search
box on any Images results page .
Click Paste image URL.

Their lives are so integrated with media, they manage to squeeze 10


hours of exposure into seven hours of access. It is no wonder, then that
the online concerns they are willing to present are without boundaries,
going far beyond hair and music into awkwardly phrased but sincerely
meant queries about identity, outside perception, body/gender image,
depression, and coping mechanisms. Topics that an adult might reserve
for a close friend or counselor (sex, religion, death) are presented in a
deceptively casual manner to public online audiences.

Excerpt: To many people, Collaboration is nothing more than a buzzword.


Some hear it and think innovation and open-minded exchanges, while
others envision stale boardrooms and blue sky thinking.

I see collaboration as the natural first step of the creative process. Not all
projects call for, or can accommodate, a phase of creative exploration and
exchange. Its a matter of the known objective vs. the yet to be defined.

Collaboration will be as successful and fruitful as you want it to be. Simple.

It requires a handful of things to get off the ground, mainly a suitable


environment and a bunch of open-minded folk. Theres a heap of tools
and resources out there that take collaboration to a new level and gift it
the value and significance it merits.

The act and meaning of collaboration has changed. How people interact
and share has redefined the creative process itself, as well as the roles of
collaborators and the milestones of a project.
