Read the following case study and answer the questions that follow:
Grace Speak is a fourth-year student at Best University. She and her fellow classmates are working
hard in their final courses and preparing for exams. Inspired by the teamwork that the healthcare
profession espouses Grace gets an idea for a study group. She thinks it will really help to share case
experiences course notes and study tips.
Unfortunately several members of her peer group live out of town which makes it difficult for them to participate fully. Grace is torn as she does not want to exclude them from the study group. When she voices her concerns to a classmate her friend
suggests using social media tools as the primary medium for sharing information.
- Two required elements that a single social media site must have to meet the needs of her study group are the ability to share ideas and experiences (chat) and share information (store documents). Research several social media sites that meet both of the required elements for Grace’s group. Select one social media tool include its website and explain your rationale for
selecting that tool. Selected Social Media Tool (and website)
- Grace discovers that not all of the members of the group use the social media tool she selected.
In your own words create a set of simple instructions that other members of the group could
follow to ensure full group participation.
- Grace decides to establish a set of “ground rules” from the outset when she forms the study
group. Create a set of “ground rules” that will help to create a group with full participation by all
members and that will not place members of the group at risk for either privacy or academic
(plagiarism) concerns. Provide your reasoning for the “ground rules” you established.
