Answer part one and two as well are you view on the subject informatics.


 Part one: What IT tools/internet services (i.e. web systems, apps, social media, etc.) do you think individuals use on a daily basis today, and why do you think they do so?  – give one or two examples of IT tools and discuss the use and consequences of this from an individual perspective

In your statement  of informatics as a subject, you should give an overall background and define the subject, while in your discussion of the above-mentioned aspects, you should stay as close to the respective themes of each aspect as possible.  You may also refer back to themes that you have written about in the structured abstract in the first part of the course, if it is relevant.


For both parts, you are expected to refer to correct sources.  References are thus central to an academic text, including this assignment.  They increase the traceability of the argument and thus give the reader the opportunity to critically examine the starting points for a reasoning.  They are also important as they highlight the authors behind previous research results.  A third function of source references is that the reader can form an opinion about how knowledgeable the author is in the field and (for example) identify that the author lacks references to relevant literature.
