I really liked this course and I am encouraging you to do the same because it was a lot of fun.
This course will really help you with your computer skills and give you guidelines to being safe on the internet.
What I really enjoyed about this course is that we got to work independently or with the class which ever we feel like doing

To be safe online you have to treat people the way you want to be treated just like the real world.
Sometimes online you can have your identity stolen if your not careful so you should never share your passwords or social security number to anyone,also you should never use personal info as passwords.
There are many different responsibilities that come into play when you decide to edit and layer and change pictures. In the Digital Is activity the four editors did not make the right choice in trying to trick the viewers into believing a picture that wasn't true. The way I did my picture was like this:
-take a picture of my bear
-found a backround on flickr
-find a basketball pic for my bear to shoot
-open all three of them onto paint.net
-cut around the bear so it is just the bear
-cut around the basketball so it is just the b-ball not the background
-copied the basket ball and the bear onto 2 diff. layers and flattened the picture into one picture wich is the one you see above
My picture is that of a bear shooting a free-throw
A personal network is where you can chat and play games with friend (something like Facebook or Twitter).
Too stay safe on social networks you need to not share anything personal like email addresses, last names, home addresses, phone numbers, or your D.O.B .
I took a course online called life online and it taught me that the online world is dangerous but also useful. Sometimes people misuse the internet and pick on other people which is called cyber bullying. Sometimes cyber bullying can get so out of control that someone could die because they are so depressed that they kill themselves . This actually happened to a boy that died because he got cyber bullied and regular bullied so bad he killed himself.
I think the internet is very useful but we need to not abuse it and if we do that we can make the internet a safer place.
