We are now in the third week of this class and the knowledge about the project and Solidaridad is becoming somewhat clearer. Despite of this, my group and I still have plenty of questions and uncertainties popping up during our project hours. In my opinion this is a good sign, as we are walking on uncharted area and are experiencing new struggles as we go along. This project is definitely a new learning experience for me as technological knowledge is something I don’t have a lot of, but am hoping to gain during this project and the future.
Talking about technological knowledge, I have never really followed any kind of computer class and thus have not very much expertise in this area…unfortunately. This does make learning about it very interesting for me as I am aware of its importance in today’s world. The use of technology is very important for online communities and networks, and is the backbone of communication in many companies now a day.
Another part of all of this is “digital identity” which is more or less an online or networked identity claimed in cyberspace by an individual, organization or electronic device. These users may also project more than one digital identity through multiple communities. As pretty much all of us use either Facebook, Myspace, Twitter or Instagram etc. we are creating an identity for ourselves on the world wide web, and though you’re mostly in control of this, our identity may be warped or seen from the wrong perspective making it all very different to the truth behind this virtual identity. On the other hand it is very useful for communicating not just with friends and family, but also with your fellow students, colleagues from work and other businesses.
My wish for the near future is to build and strengthen my technological knowledge which I can use for now but also for the future of my academic years and working years. After each new step I make I hope there are new doors to open which will only lead to more opportunities and benefits which give me and my technological knowledge space to grow…
