Week 7– Portfolio: Reflective Writing (5 marks)



Some people love Social Networking through technology (Facebook and Twitter) whilst others loathe it. Write reflectively about your experiences with the use of a Social networking technology such as Facebook or Twitter. You will need to provide a brief description of the experience and then write three paragraphs of reflective writing where you analyse the experience, what you have learnt from the experience and how you would handle it differently in the future. If you can, choose a significant event such as your account being hacked or negative comments about you or a friend being posted. Your reflective writing should cover the three key points on reflective writing (see below). If you do not use Social networking technologies you could write a reflection on why you do NOT use Social networking technologies or choose another life experience that really challenged you and write about that. This should be approximately 400 words.


The key points to consider when writing reflectively are:

  1. You need to demonstrate what you have learned from a particular experience not just describe what happened.
  2. There is no right or wrong answer—reflective writing is about what you learned from the experience.
  3. Ask yourself the following questions and give your responses in your writing: Why did Xhappen? What did I do in X situation? What were the positive and negative outcomes inthe situation? How might I do things differently next time? What have I learnt and howdoes this knowledge contribute to my development?

(McCulloch & Reid, 2015, p. 131)


Note 1: You should re-read pages 130-132 of the textbook to ensure you know what is meant by reflective writing.

Note 2: This reflective writing is about evaluating yourself; it is NOT about evaluating social media.


Marking Criteria

The reflective writing on Social Networking through technology should:

  1. Include a brief description of the experience (1 mark).
  2. Reflect on why the experience happened and how you contributed to the experience (include both positive and negative contributions) (1 mark).

  4. Describe how you would handle the experience differently in the future (1 mark)

Now I am happy that I made the right decision of coming to Insta Research for help. My term paper was so technical and analytical at the same time. I got really confused about what to do but got relaxed when I was given such a humble writer. He clarified my concepts with the best explanations and discussions. I almost interacted with him on daily basis within the writing process. The best feature of this site is quick delivery as I got the work before my deadline. Additionally, the term paper is written skillfully and handled quite professionally. Now I am able to take a deep sigh of relief and thank you all for such speedy help. The quality of the work made my day.
