Connections-base Learning Proposal

  1. We talked to a man named Tim and we learned more about his Huntington’s disease. I thought as this was new to me that this was interesting because he told us what he could and could not do and our group had to figure out a machine that could help Tim out, we found out how he likes to draw and how he couldn’t type as fast on a keyboard
  2. We had a couple ideas to help him but none of them really could have helped him, I was thinking how their could be a voice activated way to type things out like siri where he could just say what he wanted to type instead of actually typing but that would be way too long and more effort than needed and i’m not really on that level
  3. I don’t really know how would I make things like that and I don’t really have an idea on how to make simple contraptions like that

Governing Quebec

As a British official, I realize there are many alternatives to governing Quebec. I have chosen the policy of status-quo to ensure the colony is properly run because the French people can keep what they have of doing things, their laws, language and religion because they have their own way of doing things. It would benefit them as they see the British people as somewhat peaceful and gaining trust so they can be allies, unless they betray the British people because they did win the war. As I have outlined above, I believe the best policy for governing Quebec is status-quo. This will ensure that the colony will remain under British.

Safety story

Its the final day of science and our teacher Mr. Robinson said we’re doing a big experiment making elephant tooth paste and I’m really excited, it’s too bad our science class is in the last block because that makes me really eager to do it. When we arrived to the class Mr. Robinson explained the rules and we went off.

I noticed that on our bottle of hydrogen peroxide had an explosion hazard on it but I just left it aside and we ran to our table. Our group was fooling off and one of our group members hit another member while he was pouring the hydrogen peroxide and he spilled too much hydrogen peroxide and our project went BOOM!

Our experiment exploded and a bunch of substance spilled everywhere and the class and everyone was panicking because it was everywhere and nobody knew what to do so everyone gathered under the emergency shower and showered but the good thing is that nobody got hurt which was great, but the guy who bumped the person pouring the liquid got detention.

Digital Footprint

Question. 1
How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least two examples.

Well, there could be negative things about you, and things u don’t want other people see like private information that people shouldn’t know which may lead to you losing a job opportunity or losing a scholarship.

Another thing is that when applying for a job and they want to check you for anything bad they can just search you up and it’s either u appear or not but this most applies when you’re applying for something like trying to get in a collage/university or jobs, pretty much it’s either loosing or winning when people find out what you have done and all the things you have searched and posted could effect life negatively but also positive.

Question. 2 Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.

  1. Understand what you are signing up for: There’s a lot of information about privacy to take in. Think about the implications of what you’re sharing when you sign up for new services, or install new apps.
  2. Check cookies/clear cookies: Check what settings your browser have for cookies, find your browser’s “cookie store” and spend some time looking through it. Notice how many of the cookies in there have been set by sites you weren’t even aware of visiting… and then see whether your browser allows you to block third-party cookies. Some browsers offer this as an easy option, but there are also a lot of plug-ins you can use to help control tracking cookies.
  3. Understand what you’re posting/putting up on the internet: When you post something on the internet, it ’s out there forever. Deleting online content often only removes it from public view, it can be stored in archives and databases forever. Even deleting your account isn’t a guarantee that your content will be deleted. It may still be accessible through other means.

Question. 3 What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?

  • Well I’ve learned the dangers about deleting things and that posting unnecessary photos and how everything isn’t fully deleted and its just sitting in the app/website but it’s not shown to the public it’s just in the databases, pretty much all I can say is that nothing is protected in the internet and that’s what I’ve learned
