Course Description:
CS300 Computers and Society: This course presents the social, political, economic and multicultural issues surrounding the use of computers and computer technology. Course work includes class discussion, readings, collaborative projects and formal term papers on selected topics. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

I encourage lively discussion based on both my experiences and the students’ experiences along with our current activities. Moreover, each student is encouraged to engage interactively with both fellow students and instructor to share and provide experiences with research and laboratory activities from both class assignments and employment activities. Each student is encouraged to bring and discuss articles from periodicals, newspapers, Internet and technical writings that are germane to the Technology in a Global Society discipline.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Recognize the major historical implications of information technology.
  2. Assess some of the basic concepts of a global society influenced by Information Technology. (Singapore social system, English trading system, Privacy issues.)*
  3. Compare some of the effects of technology upon the cultures of different ethnic and racial groups in the United States and other countries. (Literacy and Artistic Expression in all types of media.)*
  4. Apply the tools for critical thinking, scientific reasoning and inquiry to emerging technologies and recognize, analyze and evaluate their possible effects upon the social, cultural, economic, and ethical values of the United States and the world. Knowledge of the history of Information Technology is necessary.
  5. Work as a member of a group in exchanging knowledge and ideas about technology and its role in the world.
  6. Collaborate with a group applying the literacies listed above in a mini-term paper format at least 15 to 18 pages (double-spaced) in length. This will provide practice in a group setting before writing the individual term paper.
  7. Maintain an individual electronic journal of all readings and reference sources in a word-processed journal to be handed in bi-weekly.
  8. Write a term paper using a modified format similar to that found in scientific technical journals. The paper will be at least 15 to 18 pages in length (double-spaced) and demonstrate evidence of applying the literacies to the topic.
  9. *These are only a few examples to illustrate and may cross all literacies areas in addition to the ones mentioned. Guidelines for the collaborative project paper and final term paper will be handed out at the end of week one. Evaluation Rubrics are similar for the Collaborative Research paper and Individual End of Term Research Paper.


Core Assessment:



All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes.  The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a final paper, which counts for 20% of the grade. The final paper requires that an artifact be developed to test at least seven of the eight course core objectives.


1. Recognize the major historical implications of information technology.


2. Assess some of the basic concepts of a global society influenced by
Information Technology. (Singapore
social system, English trading system, Privacy issues.)*


3. Compare some of the effects of technology upon the cultures of different
ethnic and racial groups in the United
States
and other countries. (Literacy and
Artistic Expression in all types of media.)*


4. Apply the tools for critical thinking, scientific reasoning and inquiry
to emerging technologies and recognize, analyze and evaluate their possible
effects upon the social, cultural, economic, and ethical values of the United States
and the world. Knowledge of the history of Information Technology is necessary.


5.  Work as a member of a group in exchanging knowledge and ideas about technology and
its role in the world.


6. Collaborate with a group applying the literacies listed above in a
mini-term paper format at least 15 to 18 pages (double-spaced) in length. This
will provide practice in a group setting before writing the individual term
paper.


7. Maintain an individual electronic journal of all readings and reference
sources in a word-processed journal to be handed in bi-weekly.


8. Write a term paper using a modified format similar to that found in
scientific technical journals. The paper will be at least 15 to 18 pages in
length (double-spaced) and demonstrate evidence of applying the literacies* to
the topic.
 
*Literacies as defined in the syllabus are:
Analytical and Critical Thinking, Community and Civic Responsibility, Scientific Inquiry, Ethics and Values, and Literacy and Artistic Expression



Link to Class Rubric

Class Assessment:

The course will consist of Lectures, Class Discussions, Lab/Workshop Sessions, Lab/Workshop Assignments, Reports, Briefings, Weekly Homework Quizzes, Midterm and Final Exams, Project Term Paper combined with Presentation. 

Additionally, each student’s homework must be typed (via word processor) and neat.

1.   Quizzes: Weekly homework quizzes will be assigned in advance to the student.

2.   Labs/Workshops: Students will be assigned three labs/workshops using the team concept, designing a system, and will brief the class and instructor on the progress of the system chosen.

3.   Mid-term and Final Exams: Students will complete one Mid-term and one Final Examination.

4.   Research Paper and Presentations: A topic is to be chosen using system research material gathered, and a system design in the form of a term paper supporting a Team Project accomplished. This topic will include the organization or firm that you want represented.   That organization or firm may be real or imagined, but have a degree of validity.   For example, this could be a check cashing system, ticket sales system, speed control system, sports information system, or an inventory system. Research material should be information gathered from, but not limited to, software system literature, including specifications and cost material.  A minimum of four references must be used and cited. Use your book, vendor material, information technology periodicals, and the Internet when choosing the system (all must be used for references). Ensure that these selections are categorized with the same platform types and cost types for comparison purposes. For example, choose those that are only personal computer platform systems, and chose those that are only retail prices, or chose those that are only mini-computer platforms, and choose those that are only wholesale prices. Your system selections and topic must be approved by the instructor.

You should use the first paragraph to introduce the topic to the reader and to introduce the main points of the paper. The main points of the paper will include the main topics of a modern computer software system methodology that would be useful to the public sector, U.S. Government, or a local government. Develop a specification analysis, and a cost benefit analysis detailing system specifications (pros and cons), cost, and performance.   Additionally, you will provide a summarized cost and specification analysis for the system methodology you have chosen. Diagrams and Graphics using Microsoft PowerPoint or Visio are encouraged. Ensure that transition sentences should be used to tie one system summary into the next. A final concluding paragraph depicting your choice of the system methodology you have chosen must be included. This term paper is due both electronically and on paper as scheduled.

Grading:

Eight homework quizzes, class participation, three workshops, using Microsoft Software toward team project, a midterm exam, a term project paper with presentation, and a final exam will determine your course grade. Further details of labs and term paper with presentation will be covered in class. The relative weight of the course will be as follows:

F = Less than 70%               699-Below

Late Submission of Course Materials:

If an assignment is due on a night that the student is not present, it is the student's responsibility to get the assignment to the instructor on the due date. Ten points will be deducted each day an assignment is late up to two calendar days for each calendar day the homework is late. After the two dates by the next class meeting, the student will receive an automatic zero for the grade of that particular homework assignment. Assignments will not be accepted without prior approval from the instructor. The importance of the homework deliverable also has a bearing of the student's class participation.

 

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Students should study the Park University Code of Conduct and govern themselves accordingly. Additionally, these following  items must be adhered
·         Class participation is expected and will form a part of the final grade.

·         Students are expected to attend all classes and be on time.

·         Students are required to read all material assigned prior to class and apply the material during class discussions, activities, and exercises.

·         The student is responsible for providing the instructor with justification for an excused absence, either prior to or immediately after the absence.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
