This unit enables students to explore and experience the contemporary data-driven era of social media visibility, big data and personal engagement with quantified media. Students engage in modes of enquiry that examine emerging cultural, political, economic, literary, digital, educational footprints and social media sightlines. The unit presents the current dilemmas and issues that are central to the critical understanding of quantified media and our emerging Quantified Self via digital analytics. Students learn how to gather data to analyse and evaluate information to complete a range of scaffolded activities in pursuit of broadening knowledge or finding solutions to unpredictable and sometimes complex problems.
