This was a very interesting section. Wikipedia was one of the first sites I encountered when I was younger and it has grown in repute to the status it has now. Despite this, I’d never previously created an account, never feeling like it was the right ‘place’ for me. Reading the statistics on its userbaseContinue reading “Thing 10 – Wikimedia”
Platforms such as google hangout will be of great importance in a professional setting going forward in the coming years. Google hangout skype, and any other video messaging platform ticks so many boxes regarding topical issues. They are a means by which people can connect virtually and, as a result, reduce the carbon footprint ofContinue reading “Thing 9 – Google Hangout”
In all honesty, I am not a fan of Facebook. It is a far less curated platform than Instagram, Twitter or Tiktok and I dislike the way in which it operates both visually and politically. To me, and many of my peers, it is a dying platform. This being said, it can be useful forContinue reading “Thing 8 – Facebook”
I’ve had a twitter account since I was still in school. My use of it then was primarily for pleasure; seeing what my friends were talking about and using it as another platform to keep in touch with people.

White is soContinue reading “Thing 5 – Diversity”

It was definitely a valuable skill to be able to analyse the ways in which my data is accessed by organisations. This section really made me aware of the ways in which it is important to read the termsContinue reading “Thing 4 – Digital Security”
Who’d have thought that social media had so many repercussions! This section was particularly interesting to read up on as, although I’d heard many stories about the ways in which social media can follow you, I wasn’t truly aware of the extent of this impact. I was instructed to google myself as part of thisContinue reading “Thing 3 – My digital footprint”
Like this image of a very serene lake, I too am heading out into the wilderness of digital proficiency and productivity with my online course. I’m hoping to learn as many new skills as possible and soak up whatever this course can offer me. As a part of Gen Z, I think there is anContinue reading “Thing 1 and 2 – Getting Started”
