1:This was a class project on how we are perceived online, and we watched an interactive video on preventing cyber trolls, and this blog post is about the questions associated with the video
2: This video brings to mind cyberbullying, and its very similar to it too
3: Online I don't use my real name, but my user names are usually MooseMan, or DriftRacer88
4: I think people perceive me well, since I usually try not to be mean if i'm online, for example, I don't start fights while playing games online
5: To get a response, and then get enjoyment out of your suffering
6: Anonymity is good because people can’t find you in real life, and possibly hurt you. It's bad because people could post things that are really mean, and you wouldn't know who it is, and not be able to stop them
Inside of class we watched a video made by the I Am A Witness Campaign. The video was about a child, named Jack, who was being bullied and what you can do to stop it. The campaign was trying to get people to use an emoji to respond to cyberbullying. The video reminded me of when I got bullied at my old school. I remembered how I felt and I really related to Jack on a personal level. I don't really exist online and no one has my exact name but, when I google my name a lot of white people and people that live in Andorra show up. If you googled me and didn't know what I looked like or how old I am then, they might think that I am most likely a elderly white person. The goal of an internet troll is to make you mad and to get a response. The positives of online anonymity is that it gives you a sense of privacy but some people abuse this. Because of people like this it makes online anonymity dangerous for others.
In tech class on Friday, my class and I watched an interactive video on bullying, titled #IamAWitness. As the video progressed, it allowed us to make a decision; allow the kid to be bullied, or to stop the bullying. The first time we watched, we allowed the kid to be bullied, however during the second time, we stopped the bullying. Then, we had a classroom discussion and every student did a typed reflection on Canvas.
What this video brought to my mind is that cyber bullying is just dangerous as physical bullying because every person takes things differently. It also reminded me that I have to be careful of my image online as much as I have to be careful with my image in real life. I realize I have to be careful with what I say over the internet. In my current state, I do not interact much with people online besides social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat. Based on what I’ve done on the internet, I believe I am perceived as a troll in a funny type of way(only to my friends). Hopefully, I am not perceived as the trolls that are described in this article - https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/your-online-secrets/201409/internet-trolls-are-narcissists-psychopaths-and-sadists -
which describes them as narcissists, psychopaths, and sadists who try their hardest to get a response from the victim. Lastly, there are positive and negative results of online anonymity. The positives is that the average “joe” wouldn’t know who you are without some research and that you can remain anonymous. However, the negatives is that, if someone does enough “digging around” a person can find out who you really are.
1. We watched the video about Jack and him getting bullied. Then we had to search ourselves on Google, and respond to the information/pictures we found.
2. This video reminds me of my childhood, and how I got bullied a lot. They made me feel really bad.
3. I really don't make that big of an effect online. I really just go on YouTube and a lot of Social Media.
4. When people look at my Facebook, they may think I'm sweet boy that loves my family.
5. The goal of internet trolls is to make others feel bad. They want to get a laugh out of others pain, even if it was a joke.
- Write in full sentences.
- My L.A.N. consists of a modem/router and a extended router to create a stronger connection within the house. Other devices on my home network are my Ps4, my laptop and my moms desktop. Also all four phones in the house are usually connected to the home network.
- I have learned countless things about networks during this course so far, we learned how networks are designed and how they work and we were walked through how a email would be sent or anything else from device to device. One OMG moment i had was when the video showed us how quickly the process of exchanging items from device to device takes.
- I would tell people that when you have a home network you need to know what is on that homework and how much your ISP costs so your not overpaying.
We watched a video about cyber bullying. It showed a kid named Jack, and we saw how kids teased him in school and then when he went home, he continued to be bullied online. It shows how connected we are to everything. People can do the same things online as in person, and it is easier to do them because you don't have to face them. You can be anything that you want to be online. This can show you in many ways and people can believe anything they want to believe about you. Internet trolls just try to get under people's skin and make them mad, sad, or annoyed. The positive side of anonymity is that you can do things that are private without people knowing who you are. The negatives are the same thing. People don't know who you are so you can just cyber bully anyone that you want to. This can help people, and also really hurt them.
