Who is Paxton Wentzell Online?

Today in class we watched a video about cyber bullying ( you can find a shortened clip of the video embed into this post or you can go to the actual site at ). The video didn't really change how I look at cyber bullying, but it did show me that people are actually doing something somewhat substantial to prevent it. Afterwards we googled ourselves to see what came up. We also worked with other students and googled their names and created a five word impression of them based solely on what came up in the search. I am pretty proud of what came up for me. The result ended in a couple of my website accounts, video games, presentations, and awards. I think this shows people that I am a much better and more well-rounded person than I actually am. We also learned about internet trolls whose only purpose is to annoy, anger, or attack people on the internet. This probably happens because of the anonymity of the internet. A normal person could post anything he or she wants on the internet without any real fear of being caught as long as what they're doing doesn't break any laws. This anonymity can be good and bad in different ways. For example, it could be used as a good source of reviews, open debates, or creation because people aren't held back from embarrassment of someone finding out who they are. This could also go the other way. Someone could use all of the media just listed and end up with something terrible. These, trolls, will post lies, rumors, controversial beliefs, and generally anything to waste one's time. 

Also, I have a creative commons of my own here as well. You can find it at this link

Today in class i watched a video about bullying. I had to google myself. I didn't know myself but it was good to see what others with my name did. This video makes me think of when other get bullied or picked on. Online i appear to be a beautiful young lady that likes to write books on wattpad and is really active in basketball for girls. I would think that people would think of me as a active human. They just want to make up things about you or talk bad about you. The positive results of being online is letting people know who you are and having them think good things about you. The negative results would be having a bad image on who you are and what people may think about you.

Today in class we watched a video about a boy who was being bullied. We watched it two times. The first time we did not click the eye emoji which showed what would happen if people helped the person being bullied. The second time we did though. When he clicked the emoji he was happy and seemed to be enjoying life, but when no one was helping he was nearly crying and was depressed. Online there are pictures of me from instagram and pictures from my friends instagram accounts. You could also see a project I did on Prezi in 6th grade and a picture of me from a race I did a couple years ago. There are both positives and negatives to online anonymity. The positive is that you may be comfortable with talking to people over the internet then in person, but also people can stalk you online which can lead to cyber bullying.

Who am I ONLINE? Nzinga

Tech project

In this class we watched a video about bullying. But in this video it told us how to be better than bullying and how to outsmart it. In this video it taught us about the eye emoji. The emoji tells that person that what they are doing isn't good and you see them. I know with this video it brung up children bullying other children in pre-k. You know how its that one student who is always in the front of the line and is the teachers pet. The teacher or the student may not see it, but that is bullying.

Online I am a good person. It doesn't show anything inappropriate because my name is Nzinga. Its stands for power, strength and brave. Under my name it pulls up my year at business school/class. I guess people would perceive me as accomplished and privileged because in the picture I was the only black person in the whole picture. It also shows how thankful I must be for my life as well. The goal of internet trolls is stay away from them or if they appear, stay calm. I believe the positive is only one thing, keeping yourself safe, I don't think there are any other reasons. If you aren't in trouble you shouldn't be hiding.

Reflection- Hinson

Today in class, we viewed a short interactive clip about a boy, Jack, who was being bullied by peers, both verbally and through the internet. We were able to stop the bullies in advanced by clicking the eye-looking button. This button was there to let the bullies know someone was watching them. After watching this video, lots of things ran through my mind. I really hate the fact that people are bullied and I never noticed how bad it can affect a person being bullied. Online I appear the same as I would in person. When I searched myself I didn't really find anything bad. I believe people think I am a nice and well conducted person. The internet trolls is to make you upset and very mad. A positive result of online anonymity are used to send positive messages. A negative anonymity is used to send hurtful and mean spam messages.

Help "The Rocket" Win a City Title!

Screen Shot 2015-05-16 at 8.26.36 AM

SLA Rockets Baseball Family and Bandwagon,

We shocked the Philly Public League last year by going undefeated in the regular season and upsetting the top seeds en route to the Final Four. 

Yet, we fell ever so short of fulfilling our mission of bringing home a City Title. Now the target is squarely on our backs as a team to beat, and every game we play this spring will be against the very best around.

Since the first week of September we've been building on the strong foundation of our recent success, but we're still up against teams and a system that favors the established and the fully staffed. We'll always be that scrappy, royal blue Rocket that believes and defies the odds but we need your help.

To this end, we're starting this GoFundMe campaign to ensure that our team is ready to compete against the very best the city has to offer in 2016. 

Your support will help us in the following ways:
-Professional Hitting and Pitching Coaches
-Indoor Facility Rentals
-New baseball equipment
-New Uniforms 
-Spring Training Tournaments down South

Help support the continued growth of the hottest team in the City Public League. 

City Title on 3, Family on 6!!!

Home Network by Sean DeSilva

My Internet Service Provider also known as ISP is Xfinity from Comcast. The Comcast cable connects to my modem/router which activates the Wifi. Then the other piece of the cable connects to my laptop, so it's known as the Ethernet. My Samsung Galaxy S4 smart phone, 3DS Xl, PS Vita and my dads Nokia smart phone can easily connect to the modem/router which gives off wifi. During my Technology course with Mrs. Hull, I learned that when you connect your device to Wifi, you actually pay additional amounts of money for having that device connected to your ISP which I thought was very shocking. I will tell other people to not have your devices connected to you ISP all the time because they will have to pay more than they need too. Also, I would tell them to call their ISP to fix any issues with the Internet.

My ISP is Verizon fios, so I have a fiber cable connecting to my router.  Connected through WiFi I have a tablet, six cell phones, two laptops, a TV, and a wifi extender.  I also have two hardwired desktop PCs and a printer that is WiFi connected as well.  An OMG moment for me was when we watched that video in class and I learned about what happened behind the scenes of the internet.  I would want others to know what they have connected to their network and how expensive it can get.

who am I online

Untitled drawing

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

On my home network I have 2 laptops, 1 iPhone, 1 tablet, 1 Wii, 1 Dsi, 1 wireless printer, and 1 iPod. I learned that ISP's are Internet Service Providers and they are the ones the provide us with our wifi, of course as long as we pay them. I also learned that some people can have a modem, router, or a combination of both to get their internet. I also learned that by connecting a device to your modem, router, or a combination of both with an ethernet cable you can make your device receive the wifi faster, this is mostly recommended for gaming systems. I think that people should be aware of how they get their wifi (modem, router, or a combination of both).

During tech, we watched a video about bullying and specifically cyber bullying. This video depicted a day in the life of Jack, a kid who was being bullied. This video made me think about how for every bad situation, there is an alternate situation which could have happened. These alternate situations wouldn't have made Jack feel so bad, as they did not contain bullying. 
I do not have a significant appearance online. When you Google my name, no results show up for the actual me, just other Sarah Bergs. This probably makes people think that I do not use the internet or socail media very much. This isnt true, mather that most of my accounts are private and not viewable to the public.
The gal of most internet trolls is to make themselves feel better. Trolls will take pleasure in other people's sadnress, anger, or frustration and will do anything to evoke these emotions. Once you react to a troll, their goal is met.
A positive of online anonymity is more freedom. You can comment on pages and create profiles without judgement from other people. A negative is that this can tend to lead towards cyber bullying. However, anonymous profiles can be uncovered if they are causing too much trouble.

Who am I Online? - Ayala Silverman

We watched I Am A Witness in Tech class about Jack, a boy being bullied by his classmates.  We watched the video two times, once without clicking the button to help Jack, and another to see what happens when we did help Jack.  The video sort of showed how bullying can happen anywhere and in any form.  It also showed how many people don't step up and help, even if they see what's going on.  

There's not much on me online.  A few of my old projects and another girl's website for becoming Bat Mitzvah are what appear right away.  I doubt people who search up my name would randomly click on the websites that feature my name nonchalantly, so I'm not sure whether I would be perceived as anything. 

The goal of internet trolls is to get a reaction, usually a negative one, out of other people on the internet.  This is made easier because of anonymity granted by being online.  Anonymity online makes the internet trolls' jobs easier, but it also allows for people to have conversations and opinions without giving too much of themselves away to strangers.

Q1 Benchmark - Contemporary Kafkaesque

Mia Weathers-Fowler & Deja Johnson

The theoretical piece of work we chose was a short story. We focused on a couple themes. One was the way that we are so drawn in by our technology that we forget to look at the people around us. The second is that all of the information we have access to often isolates us instead of connects us further. As the authors we created a fake blog with our Press Release (book cover, summary), Author Bios, Audience Response (podcast), and Cultural Fabric (buzzed article). Link

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.

#IamAWitness - Gregory Tasik

Screenshot 2015-10-27 at 11.36.22 AM

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 - -

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.

Ahmed Ahmed, Who Am I Online

1. The video we watched in class today was about bullying.

2. This video gives me the sign that bullying is wrong. No one should be bullied and no one should be bullying.

3. When I searched up my name online I found pictures and facts about an Actor/Comedian also named Ahmed Ahmed.

4. I don't think people will perceive me because I have nothing of me online.

5. To make all of them stop being trolls.

6. I really don't think there is a good thing about being anonymous online but a bad thing is you will never know who the real person is which could be a really bad problem.

Imani's Blog

What comes to my mind is someone hurting someone else mentally and physically. I also think about broken down homes because most bullies come from a broken home with parents fighting and unstable people that are living with them. 
I don't appear online I have pictures of baby dolls and a famous person named imani. People would think that maybe I am not really out there and don't have social media because I am not appearing on google. The goal of internet trolls are to beat you down and break your confidence and hurt your feelings. The positive thing about it is that you don't know who it is and that you can't get hurt because  you don't know who it is. The negative thing is that some random person is talking about you and you don't know them and they are saying these things about you that are hurting your feelings.

"Who Am I Online?" Reflection - Matt Reed

​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.

6. A negative of online anonymity is not knowing who if this person is messing with you for fun or actually trying to make you feel bad about yourself. A positive part of anonymity is doing things without the target finding out who you are.

1. A. I found no pictures of myself, but pictures of my friends, my facebook and a post I made on weebly.

B. My grandfather came up a lot, because he has a wikipedia and a lot of videos on youtube.

C. I found my facebook, my friend's pictures, my name on a camp website and a post on weebly.

D. The fact that people can see what comes up with my name matters because people can actually read a lot about me and find out about my opinions based on my post on weebly, which was for a sociology class.

​1. Today we watched a video about a boy who was being bullied. The viewers of the video are given the choice to make the boy's day better or to let things happen the way they usually do by pressing an emoji. We, as a class, watched the video both with and without the emojis to see the difference between small acts of kindness and acts of bullying. 

2. This video makes me realize that just a few acts of kindness can completely transform a person's day or even their life. All you have to do is smile or say a few kind words and you can make a huge difference in someone's life.
3. Online I am not the same as I am in person. I don't have a very active presence online and I only have about 6 posts altogether. I think my appearance online isn't very clear, because there is so little to see.
4. I don't think people can really perceive me in any way because there is so little information about me on the internet. For this I am grateful, because I am not worried about people finding out things about me over the internet.
5. The goal of internet trolls is to get a reaction out of people from their rude comments.
6. The positive results of online anonymity are being able to post what you what without anyone immediately knowing who you are, being comfortable saying things you want to or talking about things you want to with no judgement. The negatives are potentially not realizing that people can actually discover your identity and going to far with your actions/what you say online.

The video we watched in class today was a video from "I Am A Witness". It was about a young cyclops boy who was getting bullied in school and on the internet. There would also be an emoji that would only pop up when he was about to get bullied. You would click on that emoji to prevent any bad things from happening to him. After watching this, our classroom activity was to look ourselves up on google. What this video brings to mind in reference to the topic bullying is whenever I see online bullies or watch bullying movies because it they tend to be very captivating. Who I am online would be who I would be in person. I don't do much online. I would say I appear as just a normal and typical person going on social media. No one important or known. I think people perceive me based on this appearance by seeing me as just another person with social media, nothing else. I also feel as if the goal of internet trolls is to make people feel less about themselves so they can feel better about themselves since most internet trolls are private and usually provide no information about themselves. This way it is harder to find out who they are and they won't have a care for us. A positive result of online anonymity is that people won't find out who you are and you'll have your own privacy. A negative result of online anonymity is that people will report you and that you'll most likely give of a negative vibe to others, making them unsure and uncomfortable. This can lead to many problems.

Sofians blog stuff

In tech we watched a video about cyber bullying awareness. This cute little cyclops was bullied by some bad people. He got online at home and people made fun of him and made him feel sad. But then the second time we through the assignment, it was an interactive experience, and we could click the new emoji to make him feel better.  This shows how much bullying can hurt people, especially on the internet where its easier to say stuff because your not physically interacting with them. Online I have many social networks, consisting of facebook, instagram, snapchat, and all that stuff. I think there are heavy social norms on the internet, so I just share things that people would expect of me in person. The goals of internet trolls are simply to find people to harass. Because of online anonymity, it gives trolls a much easier job, which is negative. But a positive side is that you feel safer talking to random people beacuse you know they probably cant find you.

In class we watched a video to promote bullying awareness. It was about a kid getting bullied by a group of kids and you watched them do mean stuff to him, but there was a twist. You could press an eye emoji and change the scenario so that the kids would be nice to him i stead of bullying him. What this video brings to my mind in reference to bullying is that it happens everyday and to a lot of people and we need to be more aware of it to stop it. Basically what I'm trying to say is that if you see e getting bullied go help them and stand up for them, because if your doing nothing your just making the situation worse. Who I am online is a student of SLA, a gamer, someone who likes to watch YouTube, and a user of Facebook, but I appear as a student of SLA that posts blogs, a Facebook user, and a soccer player that has his own website. I think people perceive me as a smart and athletic individual which I think is good. The goal of internet trolls is to cause you pain over the internet by bullying you or annoying you which then gives them pleasure from doing. You see a lot of these trolls in gaming which is why you have the option to mute people online in almost all games now. The positive results of online anonymity are that nobody can find out personal stuff about you that they can use against you or to make fun of you because they don't know your true identity,the negative results of online anonymity are basically the same in the sense that nobody know who this person who's being rude or bullying people is since he has a fake name most likely, so they can't really stop him.
