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.
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
-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!!!
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
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.
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 - https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/your-online-secrets/201409/internet-trolls-are-narcissists-psychopaths-and-sadists -
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.
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.
