Hello North House!
I hope you all are enjoying the four-day weekend, be safe and don’t party too hard! Don’t forget that the roller coaster calculations are due Tuesday when we get back, good luck to anyone that forgot and left their roller coaster in a classroom (aka my group, rip 2 us). Anyways, for this weeks blog assignment I wanted to share with you guys a video about social media and technology that I thought was very eye-opening. Considering right now in english we are focusing on social media etiquette and the how-tos of the different apps, I wanted to focus on the impact social media and technology can have on our lives.
In the video “Look Up” by Youtuber Gary Turk, he shows how technology, which was created to make it easier to connect with each other, can really cause us to do the opposite at times. As you watch the video think about the impact your phone, laptop, social media etc. has on your life.
Prompt: Do you feel social media and technology are necessities in your life or distractions? Has there ever been a time where you missed out on opportunities in your life because you were caught up in the cyber world rather than the real world? If you are not an avid social media or technology user is there a reason why you are not?
