Reflection after reading modules 1&2

Questions to reflect on

a. What is the difference between Primary and Secondary types of information? When are they useful to us?
b. What is the difference between Popular and Scholarly types of information? When are they useful to us?
 c. What are the different formats of information?


a. Something that is said to be primary is either first hand news or experience. However, secondary sources are usually commentary of something that had happened.

b. Popular-type information is to inform and entertain the general public. However, scholarly-type information is a discussion about academic issue and such, usually done among professionals within certain disciplines.

c. There are 6 different formats. They are printed, digital, audio/video, multimedia, microform and human.
Personally, i think that the digital format is more useful and effective to transmit information as we use electronic device everyday.
