This is our Digital Divide & Digital Inequality presentation Voice Thread
Reflection I learned a great deal with this assignment. I was familiar with some of the concerns of digital divide and inequality because of my high school’s socio-economic issues that we are faced with everyday. In the organizational process of the assignment, my knowledge with Web Cam technology was very limited therefore, applying it to communicate, was a great experience. First off, our team was initially challenged, due to the fact that all members were from different parts of the country; including one member from the middle east. We first had to determine the best time to meet in Google’s “hangout” room. Once we set the time, we were off and running with the project. Each member took the initiative to research and analyze the best strategy, and to come up with best decision for our proposal. My main responsibility was to create and design the Voice Thread. We used Google Docs to collectively apply our findings. We also used the Power Point program to organize the copy. Once everyone contributed, I imported the type and graphics into Photoshop to create a consistent and professional look. Each member contributed equally with no issues. We have a great team. The sources and credits were presented at the end of the Voice Thread.
