QUESTION - Would You Trade Your Paper Books for Digital Versions?   Write three paragraphs supporting your opinion.  Tell us your thoughts on the growing offerings in digital books and textbooks.  Post it on your blog

ANSWER- Yes, i would definitely trade paper books for digital versions. I'm saying yes because you would get things done faster and less things to carry. Even though this can be tempting to use the internet for social networks you should be the one held responsible for the use of such actions. So this would either be carrying heavy book to school which make this harder to find or just using a E-reader to find information quickly and get research paper done faster.

                   Beside the world is getting more modernize everyday so there fore this would be no reason to keep a old book for several years when you can just get the same information at a faster speed. Using books and can even cost more as well because most students don't care about the school  property (books) which make it hard on the government because he is going to have buy more books for the future students that will need the books.
                   E-reader would be the perfect way to let students be willing to do work because students definitely don't like to read especially when there is no pictures. This is really another advantage over books. People normally say the older the book is the better the information is but it doesn't really matter it's really about what you learn and how you use your knowledge.

QUESTION-Do you think the Internet is making people more impatient? Are we becoming a society were we all want instant satisfaction?

ANSWER- Yes, i think the internet  is making people more impatient because if something happen on the web a person would go out there way just to see what's going on the web. We are definitely becoming a society were all we want is satisfaction because if someone do wrong the first thing that comes to a person mind is to sue which tells that you really have to do everything perfect.

QUESTION- Develop a Thesis statement about your research topic after you have written a Statement of Purpose and done some actual research into the topic. You will then present your thesis statement in your introduction, prove it with evidence in the body of your project, or presentation, and finally restate it along with a summary of your evidence in your conclusion.

ANSWER- My project is about the school of the future.The thesis statement of my project is the school of future would be great. Most of my research tells how the school will be different in the future. Like being modernize for school to be easier so students would want to learn more. I have research about what people think the school of the future would be like and here are some of their opinions.

-----"Education is continually changing to keep up with new inventions. 10 years ago, people learned to use the typewriter, now it's the computer. I learned to use a computer in 5th grade at P.S. 116. My teacher used movies, xeroxes, tape recorders, TVs and VCRs to teach us. You can take courses on TV without a classroom teacher. Technology is the future for schools and jobs." - Linda Sarkadi, age 11

"Computers and CDRoms will change the future of education because the CDRom will be like a textbook stored on a disk. So instead of carrying loads of heavy textbooks, you carry a couple of disks that you can read the material from. Learning would be made easier and less of a burden." - Riddhi Shah, age 10

 I truly agree with both their opinions so this is an evidence to how i think the school othe future  would be.

QUESTION - Would you speak up if you saw someone being bullied online?  Why or why not?  Would you speak up if you saw someone being bullied in school?  Why or why not?

ANSWER- I don't really think that i would speak up about a person been bulling online because at times you don't  know if the person that is writing such words are even real. So it's really hard to know who is who on the internet because of course people use fake pictures and names. I would definitely speak up if I've seen someone been bullied at school cause that's just interfering with ones private space.

 As we all know flaming is attacking a person on a personal level. As teenager we normally do stuff like without thinking twice about the consequences the person might  be at risk at because  of  the blog that we make. On my opinion if a person tries to flam you or a friend the best decision would be to report it. I'm pretty sure that's not going to be the first thing that would come to mine but of course it's the right the to do. Making fake blogs about a person can be very risk taking. If someone says something about you that you don't like the best thing to do would to let whatever website you have logged on to the take care of the problem without you getting into trouble.


Practicing the safety of the internet is very unusual to teenagers. We normally surf the internet without knowing the consequences and the responsibility towards the actions we take. The internet is consist of many different anti-trust websites which are use to gather personal information with out one's permission. One of the most known thing for your information being stolen is you giving your information to strangers . It's okay at times to give a little basic information like what u like etc. but it's very unsafe to give out very personal information like your social security. As teenagers we tend to do some dumb stuff at times but we do learn from our mistakes. So been a good cyber-citizen is very important.

QUESTION- How do you feel when someone takes credit for something you said or did? is this an acceptable thing to do?

ANSWER- When someone takes credit for something i said or did i feel very angry towards the person. Normally this would be a friend so i wouldn't expect this from the person. I really don't think this is acceptable because it's really stealing.

social network

No, i don't think social networks such as facebook, twitter etc. would be appropriate for education wise. I state this because students would pay less attention to there work and more attention to whats going on there page. Then instead of getting A's or B's we would be getting F's and as a facebook user i know for a fact that it is very addicting.


Practicing the safety of the internet is not always the first thing that come to mine by a teenager. We would normally surf the web forgetting about the responsibility and actions we have to take. Some of the things we should do while surfing the internet are :1-be Anonymous as you can. 2- Avoid in-person meetings and 3 always protect your info.
