Abstract

This study reviews how the student-selectable assignment was introduced in computer literacy education of a university in Tokyo, and focuses on advantages and disadvantages in giving students a choice of expression styles: digital storytelling and PowerPoint presentation. The goal of the course was to acquire skills and knowledge in spreadsheet and data analysis with Microsoft Excel. As a final project, each student was required to express (1) the findings from analyzing questionnaire data objectively and (2) self-PR subjectively. Each student was supposed to choose expression styles from digital storytelling or PowerPoint presentation individually. The findings showed that all students unanimously agreed that giving students a choice of expression styles was good for students though there were some disadvantages in dealing with both expression styles.
