The End: What Digital Citizenship really Means

When I first started this class I thought digital citizen meant leaving a copy of yourself by accident or purposefully on the web and because of this you should watch what you post because it influences others. Through out this semester we have told the world about us, so to speak. We have also looked…

Engage Part 2

This week is part two of the challenge engagement. We are supposed to take to social media and actively participate in conversation and share on our topics. My topic was the affordability of college tuition/ higher education. I first posted on my twitter, the app for school called “Schools APP”, and once on Facebook. But to no avail. How ever Melissa of #UNIV349DC did re-tweet one of my tweets and I believe she replied to my Schools APP post as well. So THANKS MELISSA!!!! Its a politically driven topic but it seems like they move on to the more popular topics each week. And we (The Affordable Higher Education topic) we’re so two weeks ago. But I’ve seen a lot more posts on the topic and have re-tweeted a few things myself. It will be interesting to see if we get any replies from presidential  candidates or others. I did retweet a post @SenSanders  that  @verda_verde posted. Things are starting to flow a bit more smoothly. I slightly kept forgetting about the class hashtag but when I did remember I started using it. I haven’t started replying back to others tweets I’ve seen posted, I figured I would evolve with the topic and do that for next week and build off the findings and see how that goes.  …

Part 2

So I searched for scholarly articles on the topic of affordability of college and I found a lot of African Americans not being able to reach for higher education because its too expensive for them type articles. I understood it but I didn’t really get it. Is that only including the people that aren’t awarded financial aid and they pay out of…
