Hello world,

My name is Raziya Mitchell and I am currently a third-year psychology student at the University of Southampton. The premise of my course includes modules based on neuroscience, statistics and social psychology so taking a class in digital literacy is outside of what I am use to. Following this, I chose the Living and Working on the Web module because I endeavor to pursue a career in market research after completing my degree. Subsequently, I acknowledge the importance of being digitally competent in the research sector especially as we are in a growing technology revolution. Moreover, from this module I would like to learn more about how to enhance my online social presence by exploiting the use of widgets, plugins and social networks.

Taking this into consideration, this table contains a 1-5 self-assessment scale of my current ability to use the internet  (1 being inexperienced while 5 being experienced).  Consistently, at the end of the semester I will assess myself again to evaluate my learning.
