This week we focused a lot on online privacy and forming our own opinions on the subject. I feel like having the discussions with others helped me to see a perspective that I might not have seen before. Prior to this week I knew that there was limited privacy online, but I wasn’t aware that my every move is being recorded in a file or that it was being sold to companies to cater their advertisements towards me. I don’t see a problem with that but I also can see where it could go in the future of identity theft. After seeing and discussing where the tracking could go, I was able to decide that I believe that we need some sort of regulation for tracking.
I really liked getting to be apart of the research the Mr. Schoenborn is doing with a few professors at Central, especially because I have been apart a lot of research studies in the Physical Therapy department but never the English department. The only thing that I wish would have been explained more to us was what exactly the College Ready Writing is and what exactly we were doing prior to actually doing it.
Participating in the PT department’s research growing up I always knew what I was doing and what they were looking for. Not really knowing why we were doing the mini lesson till afterwards didn’t allow me to personally learn as much. I did think that I learned something but just not all that I could have.
