Justin's slide #2

Tech Slide
What I learned was making something more simpler. My last slide had so much color and the background was shoes with all sorts of colors. I think that the new slide I made represents the one true thing about me. That the organization I play for is what my whole life is about, supporting my second family through sports and events. I made the quote we use to each other in black and white because white on black is simple. I put the picture with the four corners as if the background was fading into the picture. I think that it makes the background bleed through the pictures which in my opinion is a cool tool to use. I used the same font for each word in the picture because each word means something.

Net Neutrality

Why is net neutrality important for teens to know about? 

Net neutrality is important for teens to know because teens like freedom. Net neutrality is the freedom of internet use that is in the edge of getting taken away. Teens should learn more net neutrality because they spend most of their time using internet for everything. I think that if teens don t know about net neutrality they would get mad if their ISP made the "fast lanes" to slow down some of the sites they use.
Its important for teens to know net neutrality because if their freedom of internet get taken away, they could get mad and doesn't realize what was happening. If we don't have net neutrality we wouldn't have equal internet access from our ISPs. If we don't have it, some of the sites that we use will be slower than the other sites, such as Netflix. Teens now are on Netflix to watch lots of movies and if the ISP makes the use of Netflix slower, it would be a big problem.
If the ISPs get to make their fast lanes and net neutrality is taken away, we might have to pay more for the internet we use daily. Teens should know about the rights that they have online. The next generation of kids won't know what its like to have networking rights. I hope that teens will understand how important it is for them to know about net neutrality.

​Why is net neutrality important for teens to know about?

Net neutrality is very important in our society and can take over the rights of anybody who doesn't know what is going on. Especially teens and younger adults. With the amount of time kids today spend on social media and internet connections, we need them to be well aware of stuff going on on the internet. ISP's are trying to control what they go on and what they can and cannot see. They are also trying to take away the speed of internet and basically make you pay more for the same speed you have now. We as a society need to keep our teens and kids aware of these problem to help make a difference and keep them safe while on the internet.

ISP's are trying to control our internet and are restricting what we go on and what we watch. We need our kids to know this so they can know what is right and wrong, because our kids are our future and have voices too. This is also not just affect adult but will also affect them. ISP's might take away the social medias we all love to go on or not allow us access of it. This will hurt for connecting with other and sending messages. 

Also ISP's are trying to higher the cost of speeds given on the internet, while only still giving the same amount of speed as you've always had. If providers start to control the internet they will have no competition and you will no longer have a choice. We would either have no internet or pay way more for the same speed we've always had. These are why we need our teens to know the dangers of net neutrality, and no one can try to manipulate our kids into something that will hurt their internet. Let your kids know what net neutrality is and one day they will have the voices to keep our internet safe.

​I think that net neutrality is very important for teenagers. One way net neutrality will help you is when you are in need to watch a movie in school. If the teacher tries to watch a movie in class to teach you and the movie is blocked doesn't allow access, then it could stop your learning. I think that this is unfair to happen because some kids doesn't want to hear lectures all the time. Movies that help you learn gives you a break from lectures and when the movie isn't working, then the kids may hear more lectures.

Net neutrality helps students with homework. Like in this school, we have computers. Most homework is assigned online. If a certain website isn't allowed to be access then the student will have trouble with problems. The school may not have enough money to get the websites to be accessed. This could be a real problem to students learning through the internet. 

Net neutrality can help teenagers with their learning. When students are researching in class, the internet could be a problem. The internet could become slower if the school isn't paying their provider enough money for faster internet. That makes the students education slow as well. This can cause slow learning for student who are learning through the internet.

Net Neutrality is important for teens to know, because it helps them realize how much freedom net neutrality allows us to have and helps us not take it for granted. It also helps teens learn more about I.S.P and what their jobs are and how they affect net neutrality. It helps them see that Internet Service Providers doesn’t give us the freedom that we deserve to have on our website.  Net neutrality is also important for teens to know because it treats all the data you get from a website fairly and keeps it safe.  Like, for example if you were trying to get on both YouTube and Facebook, the internet and the I.S.P's could limit your speed and charge you while net neutrality would allow you to browse and access both freely and not make you pay a charge.

I.S.Ps  want to charge you for almost every time you get on your network. Unlike Net Neutrality which allows every website you visit to have no limits for you usage. Net Neutrality also gives you freedom to use any website you want and doesn’t charge you a monthly fee for the website you are using. Internet Service Providers also want to control how much internet you use which limits your time on it. They create illegal downloads which charge you for how much internet you use and this is not fair.

Companies like Comcast and Verizon can be very crafty and can block a website or source you want to use and make their own and charge you for it. This makes you pay more money while you can easily use a website that would charge you less. This is why Net Neutrality is so important because t lets you use any website you want. Open Internet, which is another way to say free internet, avoids high and unfair prices, it limits competitiveness  from other companies, it allows more ideas, and allows you to use any speech you want.

Net Neutrality!
In a word without Net Neutrality, little Jimmy tries to watch Netflix on his Xfinity internet. He goes to the profiles, chooses his, then wants to watch Scrubs. He presses play, then waits for it to load. While waiting, he sees his homework pile up on his desk, and just wants to watch that season finale. It's been four hours, and now hes just asleep on the keyboard, and it's finally loaded the first minute! This is the world without the Net Neutrality.

Johny decides that he wants to watch something. Unlike Jimmy, he doesn't have a subscription to Netflix, but still has Xfinity, so he watches the TV section of Comcast. He watches Divergent, and it loads instantly! It doesn't even take a minute, and he is already watching the movie, but with Netflix he would ave to wait hours in end. 

In this world, Netflix is always slow. YouTube is even slower, and Hulu, well nobody uses Hulu. In this world, it is slowed by the internet providers. It doesn't matter if you pay extra, it is still slower than an old man.

Net Nuetrality

Net Neutrality is the principle that internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the internet equally. Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because teens lives are on the internet. Every likes fast internet speed but its especially important for teens. Teenagers have school work, social media and other needs that requirement the web. It may not seem like a big issue but it is. 

We have to protect our right as people to access what we want and how we want on the internet. If bigger companies that use the internet to promote what they sell have faster internet, than everyone else is slowed down. Including teens internet service. If the government doesn't act soon about it then net neutrality will soon be to an end. Computers will slow down and websites will load slower.

If companies paid money for faster service, it will disrupt many things because everything revolves around technology today. Teens need to know that just because it isn't exciting, its still important. Equal web access for everyone is crucial to life. Equality on the internet has been fine so it shouldn't change. Its important for teens to know about net neutrality because it result on their life

Tia Roberts : Slide #2

Screenshot 2015-01-08 at 12.09.06 PM
¨Why breathe?¨ The point of this slide is to show people my true passion. I enabled a catchy title to enhance the attention of my readers and added bold pictures to tell a story without actually having words. I used minimum space for my wording so that my pictures could be big enough you would see it without having to look so hard. I made my slide have a little contrast by making the whole background black with bright colors added on top to pop out at the audience. This slide not only expresses who I am without portraying actually me, it makes people think deeper and actually have a feeling towards it.

Slide #2

Express yourself
I chose to make my slide like that for many reasons. One reason is that I chose to use large text and I decided to manage my space so it wouldn't be too crowded. I also made some of my pictures bleed off the slide because not the full picture should be used. I wrote "Express Yourself" in red because I think that it would catch people's attention if it was on a billboard. It contrast with the white background which catches the eye. The pictures that I used expresses some of the things that I like. I like keeping things simple, but meaningful so I decided to make my slide not too flashy. I sing and dance at church, so it became a hobby for me. I like working and helping out little kids, they're always make someone smile. I love chilling/hanging out with my friends and watch movies. Music and shopping is just my thing! I love music because everyone can relate to them and shopping is always fun.

Slide Two

Whats the first thing you see? The picture of course. My slide represents me with my family. I think family is a very big aspect in your life. They are what brought you into this life and supports you when you need them the most. I made my slide look very appealing and sharp so when you see it, you will have the urge to stop and look at it. I didn't want it to look very mixed and full. I wanted it to centralize just one picture which is my family. The picture gives the whole space around it to breathe. The background is a red and gold Victorian that contrasts with the outfit I was wearing in the picture. It is intriguing and colorful which makes the slide look bold. The background also bleeds throughout the whole slide. The quote, ¨Family is everything,¨ represents the picture. I put it in a white and big text so it will look huge and be the second thing you see. I separated it and broke down the words to be in a column on one side of the slide.
