    Text Analysis

    For my text analysis assignment, I chose the poem “If -” by Rudyard Kipling. I’ve known of this poem from a post I saw on the internet fairly recently and I loved it so much that I decided to center this post around it. The poem is inspirational and gives advice to the reader on […]

    Privacy and Online Exams

    Privacy Privacy is an important part of all of our lives, but some make an effort to protect it more than others. I can definitely say that I’m one of those people. Privacy to me started meaning much more as social media and the internet became more prominent in our society. We’ve all heard stories […]

    Misinformation and social media

The unfortunate part about this is that many impressionable people fall for it and spread it among their friends and family. Social Media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, have an […]

    Terms of Service

    Terms of Service, or TOS for short, is something that is viewed by many as a long and boring piece of document made by service providers. I for one can only think of one time in my entire life where I actually made an effort to read the TOS for one of the new products […]

    Rebuild the Internet

    For my Rebuild the Internet project, I chose to create a representation of how the internet is our second brain. The Internet has so many features that we can use anytime to create anything we want and also grab as much information from as we want, like our minds. The internet is as creative, imaginative, […]

    The Web 20 Years Ago

    “Small Pieces Loosely Joined” The first three chapters of the reading go into detail about what the internet was like for many people in its initial stages and how in many ways it relates to the space we have in real life. The author did a great job of explaining how the web has changed […]

    Week 15

    The last week of classes! How fast it went, yet so slow at times as well. This week in class we didn’t really have virtual meetings due to several different circumstances with weather and allergy season. This allowed for me to focus on my Methodology project. For this I created a story map about the […]

    Week 13

    During the week we continued to talk about what our plan was for the Methodology project. Honestly, though I attended the Twitch sessions, I was so busy with my education classes with writing lesson plans, that I did not get much of a chance to continue to look at the project. However, I am pretty […]
