Learners should read chapter two from Bauman’s book Liquid Modernity before they  start doing all the task. Thanks to that, students have the opportunity to approach to theory and develop greater comprehension of the purpose of the WebQuest.

Step 2

Toward a simple theory, students can arrive those concepts in Bauman’s book in some hypothetic cases illustrated on the British television series Black Mirror (BM). To accomplish this purpose, students need to watch two chapters of  BM.

Step 3

After theory and examples, students need to distinguish the difference between the concepts of inquiry, investigation, and immersion. It is with the aim of starting developing the task of the WebQuest. They have to watch the next video to accomplish the objective of recognizing the difference between the concepts mentioned before.

Step 4

Students have to know, for this project, what is a questionnaire and how to make one. With this in mind, they will read the following webpage to learn about surveys and close-ended questions.

Moreover, in the next website, they will have more information about close-ended questions in case they want to learn more about how to do these questions and seek for examples of these.

Step 5

You are already finishing! On this step, the group has to interchange their thought about all learning they achieved in the process. Then, they will do a view in a week and a half their interaction on Instagram.           

  • For this part, here are some questions that can inspire you: ​​

1. Who are the people you follow?

2. Which is the content of the people you follow create?

3. How many hours do you spend on Instagram?

4. Do you prefer scrolling on Instagram than learning about a subject or practicing a skill like playing an instrument or hanging out with friends? 

Step 6

According to the questions, the group has to do a survey where they can confirm what they discover in the view of their interactions on Instagram.  Finally, they will do an infographic per group, which will show all their final thoughts about how they are using this social media and how is it affecting their way to express themselves and how they are making friends.
