​I think that net neutrality is very important for teenagers. One way net neutrality will help you is when you are in need to watch a movie in school. If the teacher tries to watch a movie in class to teach you and the movie is blocked doesn't allow access, then it could stop your learning. I think that this is unfair to happen because some kids doesn't want to hear lectures all the time. Movies that help you learn gives you a break from lectures and when the movie isn't working, then the kids may hear more lectures.

Net neutrality helps students with homework. Like in this school, we have computers. Most homework is assigned online. If a certain website isn't allowed to be access then the student will have trouble with problems. The school may not have enough money to get the websites to be accessed. This could be a real problem to students learning through the internet. 

Net neutrality can help teenagers with their learning. When students are researching in class, the internet could be a problem. The internet could become slower if the school isn't paying their provider enough money for faster internet. That makes the students education slow as well. This can cause slow learning for student who are learning through the internet.

Net Neutrality is important for teens to know, because it helps them realize how much freedom net neutrality allows us to have and helps us not take it for granted. It also helps teens learn more about I.S.P and what their jobs are and how they affect net neutrality. It helps them see that Internet Service Providers doesn’t give us the freedom that we deserve to have on our website.  Net neutrality is also important for teens to know because it treats all the data you get from a website fairly and keeps it safe.  Like, for example if you were trying to get on both YouTube and Facebook, the internet and the I.S.P's could limit your speed and charge you while net neutrality would allow you to browse and access both freely and not make you pay a charge.

I.S.Ps  want to charge you for almost every time you get on your network. Unlike Net Neutrality which allows every website you visit to have no limits for you usage. Net Neutrality also gives you freedom to use any website you want and doesn’t charge you a monthly fee for the website you are using. Internet Service Providers also want to control how much internet you use which limits your time on it. They create illegal downloads which charge you for how much internet you use and this is not fair.

Companies like Comcast and Verizon can be very crafty and can block a website or source you want to use and make their own and charge you for it. This makes you pay more money while you can easily use a website that would charge you less. This is why Net Neutrality is so important because t lets you use any website you want. Open Internet, which is another way to say free internet, avoids high and unfair prices, it limits competitiveness  from other companies, it allows more ideas, and allows you to use any speech you want.

Net Neutrality!
In a word without Net Neutrality, little Jimmy tries to watch Netflix on his Xfinity internet. He goes to the profiles, chooses his, then wants to watch Scrubs. He presses play, then waits for it to load. While waiting, he sees his homework pile up on his desk, and just wants to watch that season finale. It's been four hours, and now hes just asleep on the keyboard, and it's finally loaded the first minute! This is the world without the Net Neutrality.

Johny decides that he wants to watch something. Unlike Jimmy, he doesn't have a subscription to Netflix, but still has Xfinity, so he watches the TV section of Comcast. He watches Divergent, and it loads instantly! It doesn't even take a minute, and he is already watching the movie, but with Netflix he would ave to wait hours in end. 

In this world, Netflix is always slow. YouTube is even slower, and Hulu, well nobody uses Hulu. In this world, it is slowed by the internet providers. It doesn't matter if you pay extra, it is still slower than an old man.

Net Neutrality

  Many people don't really know what Net neutrality is.The definition of Net Neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites. Many people feel different have opinions about this. Their will be many problems if we eliminate Net Neutrality. 

In my opinion Net Neutrality is important. Without it getting internet service would be very difficult. Honestly Until this point I had no idea what Net Neutrality is. Now that I do I think more people should be made aware of it. We have to stop the FCC from manipulating our data.
I think specifically teens should be taught about Net Neutrality. Media plays a big role in teens lives. I believe if would be beneficial for them to know about. They should be educated on it in school. SLA is a role model for other schools.

Net Nuetrality

Net Neutrality is the principle that internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the internet equally. Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because teens lives are on the internet. Every likes fast internet speed but its especially important for teens. Teenagers have school work, social media and other needs that requirement the web. It may not seem like a big issue but it is. 

We have to protect our right as people to access what we want and how we want on the internet. If bigger companies that use the internet to promote what they sell have faster internet, than everyone else is slowed down. Including teens internet service. If the government doesn't act soon about it then net neutrality will soon be to an end. Computers will slow down and websites will load slower.

If companies paid money for faster service, it will disrupt many things because everything revolves around technology today. Teens need to know that just because it isn't exciting, its still important. Equal web access for everyone is crucial to life. Equality on the internet has been fine so it shouldn't change. Its important for teens to know about net neutrality because it result on their life

Tia Roberts : Slide #2

Screenshot 2015-01-08 at 12.09.06 PM
¨Why breathe?¨ The point of this slide is to show people my true passion. I enabled a catchy title to enhance the attention of my readers and added bold pictures to tell a story without actually having words. I used minimum space for my wording so that my pictures could be big enough you would see it without having to look so hard. I made my slide have a little contrast by making the whole background black with bright colors added on top to pop out at the audience. This slide not only expresses who I am without portraying actually me, it makes people think deeper and actually have a feeling towards it.

Slide #2

Express yourself
I chose to make my slide like that for many reasons. One reason is that I chose to use large text and I decided to manage my space so it wouldn't be too crowded. I also made some of my pictures bleed off the slide because not the full picture should be used. I wrote "Express Yourself" in red because I think that it would catch people's attention if it was on a billboard. It contrast with the white background which catches the eye. The pictures that I used expresses some of the things that I like. I like keeping things simple, but meaningful so I decided to make my slide not too flashy. I sing and dance at church, so it became a hobby for me. I like working and helping out little kids, they're always make someone smile. I love chilling/hanging out with my friends and watch movies. Music and shopping is just my thing! I love music because everyone can relate to them and shopping is always fun.

Slide Two

Whats the first thing you see? The picture of course. My slide represents me with my family. I think family is a very big aspect in your life. They are what brought you into this life and supports you when you need them the most. I made my slide look very appealing and sharp so when you see it, you will have the urge to stop and look at it. I didn't want it to look very mixed and full. I wanted it to centralize just one picture which is my family. The picture gives the whole space around it to breathe. The background is a red and gold Victorian that contrasts with the outfit I was wearing in the picture. It is intriguing and colorful which makes the slide look bold. The background also bleeds throughout the whole slide. The quote, ¨Family is everything,¨ represents the picture. I put it in a white and big text so it will look huge and be the second thing you see. I separated it and broke down the words to be in a column on one side of the slide.

Slide 2 by Nat

Technology (1)
I made several changes in my slide, many changes where difference in color and text. I was given a lot of advice to switch out the background for a more calm and desired color, not a loud red. I was also criticized for the eraser being a different color, so I swapped it out as well. I then added even more variation within my text, making more words bold and larger than others to make it much more appealing. I learned that even the smallest switches in color and boldness can make something a thousand times more eye capturing, even if a color is slightly off it can cause boredom and lack of interest.

Media Fluency #2

Slide--Tech (1)
With my second slide I didn't really change much because all the reviews I got were great. The only thing I changed was the quotations because they were different. But it was a very minor change. What I learned from this keeping it simple is the best thing ever. You don't want too much on your slide because it will take away from the big picture. I'm very happy I listened to that advice because it really helped me in the long run.

Net Neutrality and Teens // Nadya Negron

Net Neutrality

What is Net neutrality? Net neutrality is that Internet Service Providers and the government have to treat all Data on the internet equally. Not discriminating because of the user, website, application, etc. Net neutrality protects us from ISP’s treating traffic differently. Without Net neutrality you can forget about youtube,netflix anything online you can forget about it. If the ISP’s get control of that you won’t be able to do anything like that.

I think it’s important for teens to know about Net neutrality because in the future in can be in jeopardy and since we know about it we can do something about it. Right now Net neutrality is in danger and I think it’s because not many people know about it so they don’t care. Us teens are the new generation we can fight this. WE can make a difference just by having this knowledge and sharing it with the world how important it is. I don’t people understand without Net neutrality the internet would be a completely different place.

I also think it’s important for teens to know about net neutrality because our generation lives off of the internet. All most teens know is that the internet works fast. They don’t know why the internet works fast or what some people have to do to fight for our internet rights. Soon they will want to know when the internet isn’t working fast anymore. But we don’t have that type of time. So that’s why I think it’s very important for teens to know about Net neutrality and what it does for us.

Net Neutrality

​Teens need to learn about net neutrality so that we become better adults. If we learn about net neutrality we will be able to not make the mistakes that the fcc is making by thinking about getting rid of net neutrality. We also need to learn about it so we can spread the word.
Net neutrality keeps everyone happy. If it didn't exist we wouldn't be able to use the internet. Net neutrality means that every website us treated the same. If it's gone companies can treat websites differently. This means that websites like Facebookwill be hard to access. If you want to access them you will have to pay more money.
In conclusion we need to learn about net neutrality so that we understand that it is a good thing that keeps us happy. We also need to tell more people about it so that people understand that we need it.

Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality is important for teens to now. For an analogy teens would want to know that if they would they are living in an equal world or not. Which leads me to my statement why would they not need to know that their internet is not beginning distributed to them equally. Teens should know when the are getting ripped of and not. In addition, this makes me question why would companies want to give us less internet for more money.

For many Americans has become so much a part of the lives. Whether it is Using it on their computers ,phones, ipods/mp3s, gaming consoles , and more. About 84.2% of the population (2013) used the internet. A portion of those people are teens. Most teens use the internet mostly  on their video game consoles and smartphone leads me to my statement. Teens need to know about net neutrality because if one day the randomly want to go on youtube and they have perfect connection and suddenly their I.S.P decide to slow their internet down they need to know what their I.S.P is doing.

Teens today are growing up and they are hitting the age where they can speak up. They should question why is this website blocked if I am paying for it. Most teens in America know that they have freedom of speech in America in a way. So which means we should also be allowed to say what ever we want on the internet because we are paying for our I.S.Ps and this is America. In addition, teens need the internet to learn and whent I.S.Ps slow down and block websites on the internet that just make learnig harder for them.

Net Neutrality

Net neutrality is the process in which major internet companies have a direct connection to the use of internet that goes to customers of major companies who need access to internet. There are certain amount of rules and regulations put in place to protect the system. The people in control of this are the FCC. They work to try to promote fairness and equality for the internet companies and distributors. At the moment they are working on regulating the rules so that everyone agrees and benefits from them.

At the moment there are significant discrepancies between the ways things should be run and the way they are happening. There are two sides to the system that is net neutrality. One being the people in control of the internet flow, and the others being those trying to sell or give internet to their customers. The problem is that one side feels that they are being unfairly forced to pay for a service that should be given. Companies like Comcast can if they want can slow down their internet services to companies like Netflix if they feel like they are not being paid enough. This obviously causing conflict.

The unfair way of the system has caused each side to fight with the other. Because there is conflict, everyone is looking forward to the new rules to be announced soon. Tom Wheeler, chairman of the fcc, is going to make a new set of rules. This is known supposed to fix the issues that are currently taking place, so they both sides can be civil. It is going to be a step in the right direction in net neutrality.

Net Neutrality Blog

Net Neutrality is an important debate that is you need to know about. "Debate? That has nothing to do with me! Why do I have to know about this topic that doesn't even relate to me?"  It has more to deal  with you than you actually realize. For Net Neutrality will change how you use the Internet forever.

Net Neutrality prevents your Internet Service Provider charges you more money to view certain websites. Right now we currently have Net Neutrality. This is how, this is proven. Want to watch a YouTube video? Go right on ahead. You simply go on the website and *BAM* video. This is because we have Net Neutrality. But without Net Neutrality you are no longer able to do this without paying extra. 

This is a BIG deal. Your internet service provider wants to change your internet was forever. They want your money and that's exactly what they are going to get if Net Neutrality gets removed. You might think that this is grown-up buisness that has nothing to do with you but you are wrong. SO WRONG!
