Thanks for following! MAJOR PROJECT PROPOSAL To write a summary for my major project, I started to read through all of my posts. I found it interesting that within the first couple of paragraphs into my first entry, I had stated in my initial proposal, "I could learn more about digital identity and citizenship alongside … Continue reading Well, that’s a wrap!
It has been a while (almost a month) since I last posted about my major project. There are a couple of reasons for this (in order): #1 - unsure of what direction to go next with my project#2 - lack of interest/participants for my new direction (I'll explain more below), so I left the window … Continue reading Digital Dialogue

Much like most of us did after sleuthing on strangers last week, I did some searching on my own name and came across very little except some news articles and profile pictures regarding some sporting accomplishments I had when I was in my prime (mostly under my maiden name). As much as I was glad … Continue reading Digitized Identification
This week, I addressed the idea of digital etiquette. I did this by searching and eventually finding a resource on BrainPop, a common online resource used in both primary and middle years.

Since my last post for which I shared my proposal for my major project, I’ve started to figure out the direction I want to go.
