We've been working on the annotated bibliography for our Wikipedia site. I found that doing the annotated bibliography was somewhat interesting because I learned a lot about the topic.How was it for you finding sources on the topic? However, when it came to posting on the site, I encountered many breakdowns. I quickly became frustrated and confused with how to post my information in a cohesive way with the rest of the content on the site. Also, I grew even more frustrated when I realized that I posted my input and then it got taken off. Did this happen to you guys too? What did you do?
I've been so confused with the Twitterive assignment. Every time I would ask questions, I still feel like I was unsure of what to do. I started out by just tweeting about my sister's soccer game. Then I went in the direction of basically writing like a journal and going through day by day about my last trip out to Arizona visiting my sister. Then we had a class talking about controlling values and I just got so much more confused. I had no idea what Professor Kopp was talking about with the controlling values and what mine would even be. I ended up meeting with him outside of class and he gave me a clear direction of where I should go. So I just started writing and changed my draft completely. Now I think I have a solid draft, but don't know how to finish it or make more from it. What was your process like for the Twitterive? Were you just as confused as I was at first or did you have a clear direction the whole time?
When I read the article about being a digital native and digital immigrant I found it pretty interesting. It is weird to think that even though I would be considered a digital native, someone so close to me such as my parents would be considered digital immigrants. I remember my mom not getting her first cell phone until around the age of forty. I got my first cell phone in seventh grade. Having digital technology has become a natural part of every day life. What was it like for your parents growing up probably as digital immigrants? My parents are quick learners and have become more advanced in the digital technology. However, I know for my grandparents, for instance, they are technologically illiterate and are constantly asking me how to work the computer. Do you think that having a more technologically advanced society now has made things easier or complicated life by maybe having a more distant and not as intimate society?
