Abstract

The goal of this research project is to present our work towards a proof of concept that how project-based learning and social media help digital literacy education in K12 settings. This is a pilot study following a whole semester after-school module that aims to improve students’ digital literacy in Taiwan. An education social media learning platform Edmodo will be used as a course management system for this module, and K-12 students are expected to produce digital artifacts using multimedia augmented reality technology. Through this module, we attempt to understand: (a) students’ learning process in PBL and social media context, as well as their learning outcomes; (b) the correlation between students’ learning outcomes and their digital behaviors prior to participating in this module; (c) teachers’ instructional strategies and challenges while carrying out this module.
