Today we are going to begin a project that will last until the end of the semester. We are going to use our powers of web design and content creation to make a difference in the minds of students and staff at Camino Nuevo.. You may have noticed the big red-lettered poster I keep in my classroom.
The meaning of this poster is very powerful. It means: don't just use technology to absorb what others have written or created. We should use technology to create our own content. Find things that are important to us and the world, and raise awareness and start conversations about them.
Today you are going to create a NEW website. One that is DEDICATED to the ideas on my poster. Every time you create a new blog post for your website, it must do one of the blue-lettered tasks (raise awareness, start conversations, etc). The issues you choose to write about will be up to you. However, the issues you write about must be bigger than just things you are interested in. The issues you choose must affect people. You might choose to write a post about the Dakota Access Pipeline Protest. You might choose to write a post about pollution and climate change. Maybe you write about immigration. Again, what ever you choose to write about is up to you.
I have NEVER had students do this EXACT project before, so I don' t have any really good examples for you that have been created in the past. However, I do have examples of student websites in the past. I will show you some today, and guide you through creating your new site.
You will today start to do some research and begin designing your website. Please get ready for me to share my screen with you.

whata it means for me is that it can change my future and it can help us at something. Also what I learned was that everyday the technology is expanding.
12/5/2016 03:01:48 pm
we can use technology to share stuff in the web and to communicate with each other.
12/5/2016 02:56:03 pm
The video means to me is that we use alot of technology nowadays and that we are getting smarter every year. This is a good thing because if you go on social media the pst can go viral and you can make a change by letting the world know by social media.
12/5/2016 02:57:20 pm
I think the video means that we are advancing really fast in technology and gaining more knowledge than other people would in the 1900.
12/5/2016 02:57:28 pm
This would maen that in the next 10 years people will be able do amazing things and I would be able to help people in need and I can do thing that someother people can't.
12/5/2016 02:57:39 pm
what the video means for me is that technology is defeating us humans. Also us humans are using our brains less and less. Technology is taking over humans. Also that in the next couple of years our brains are going to have less and less knowledge. how i can use technology to help is by using the internet wisely.
12/5/2016 02:57:44 pm
i think this all means that one day technology will overcome use and i think that we can use all this technology to make a diffrence by using it for a reference not a learning outcome because we wont benifit from it
12/5/2016 02:57:57 pm
What the video i just watch means for me is that technology and the humans are becoming smarter and smarter way more advanced. Technology is growing faster and smarter also are humans, if humans become smarter then the technology becomes more advanced.
12/5/2016 02:58:25 pm
what that video meant is that people just use technology not useful or wisely ,that later on in the years more invented stuff will make the world like trash.the world will just be technology which is kind of cool.i could use technology to make a difference by only making a website to change peoples mind and making them think how fast time is going.
12/5/2016 02:58:26 pm
what the video meant for me is how fast technology is expanding and how much faster it will grow in the future. I can use technology to change minds in different ways
12/5/2016 02:58:46 pm
What this means for me is that over time the use of internet has change from what they use to use in the past than what they use right now so many people use it.What I could do to make it change is by showing people that technology could make a big diffrence when you don't use it also by showing them how it changes minds in different ways and how you could use it less or how it could helps you learn.
12/5/2016 02:58:47 pm
I think that it means that many humans in the world are using technology around the whole world. I think that technology can help you to make a company add for your business.
12/5/2016 02:58:53 pm
What I just saw in the video makes me think that the world keeps changing every year because human beings are advancing with technology. Also, technology had been taken for granted and what used to not be used on a daily basis, is now what people mostly use on these advanced items. By using technology, you can drive change by posting something that will change the world for something better. Now, you could also start conversations with other people at different houses even around the world! This how you could use technology to make a difference because there are a lot ofterrible things in this world.
12/5/2016 02:58:59 pm
What it means to me is that technology is advancing and our knowledge is advances to the point where in 2019 our brain knowledge from years, months, and we're so close to our brain knowledge doubling every 12 hours. If the human population becomes more advanced we'll have mostly everyything done for us.

What this video means too me is that we are not realizing how much techonogoly we are using.Kids now a days are getting phones at a younger age .They are getting instagram ,and social media.Technogoly is a tool ,we dont need it,if phones werent not made kids would be outside pkaying not inside playing videos games ,being on computers and using phones .How we can change this is by making a powerful speech or powerpoint on why technology is a tool.We need to change the world by starting with ,me or you.
12/5/2016 03:01:28 pm
The video to me meant how technology is slowly and slowly becoming a bigger thing that everyone is using. Our new generation will grow up with newer and better technology. It's pretty sad to watch how technology is taking over our world. Technology can be used to find answers and to take action because many people would be able to see it since technology became a bigger thing now.
12/5/2016 03:01:36 pm
the video means to me that by every year we are getting smarter. it also means that other people in different countrys are getting smarter then us. It also means to me that more of americas are becoming not as smart as we could be
12/5/2016 03:04:59 pm
we could help by trying to stop using techogoly as much as we do and go out and learned more also to be adhere of what we do.
12/5/2016 03:01:43 pm
So what the video maent to me was that peopole use tenclogy so much that everday we get something new which people use it so much so how we can use tencolgy is by not using it too much because like in the video it said maybe everyday more and more which mabye means we ha to make these people stop
12/5/2016 03:01:54 pm
What I think the video was about people trying to show us that how much people used technology in many ways like instagram, Facebook, youtube, texting, etc.
12/5/2016 03:01:54 pm
What the video means is tecknolgy is going up to a whole new level, and what that means is each year tecknolgy is rising up and it's changing to a whole new level. What I would do with tecknolgy is spread problems that are happening in our world so others could know, and fix those problems toghether, and so other could be aware on what's going on.
12/5/2016 03:02:01 pm
the video taught me to be wise on how not to be using technology for my life, because then i would realy on technology instead of my head but you can also change minds in different ways
12/5/2016 03:02:20 pm
what the video is trying to say is that every year things increase like technology and humans are creating more things ,you can use technology to make differences and changes in the world you can use technology to research and create websites to support and fight for something you want , and stand up .
12/5/2016 03:02:27 pm
what i think the video was trying to show us was, that you need can see how much life is changing with the new generation. They were also showing you how people are using technology more offted when it was first introdus to the world. I think that i can change the world with technology by showing more video to other people and to be able to spread some awearness to other
12/5/2016 03:02:33 pm
The video means for me is that as the years go by everything will change. From how we use our devices to messing with our brains. We can use the words by technology by texting if you wanna start a conversation.
12/5/2016 03:02:38 pm
As years pass everyday, technology gets advanced. Which affects us humans and the world. Humans use more technology to change the world. Like the Apple company, since i Phone 6 was s success, they made i Phone 7.
12/5/2016 03:02:56 pm
The video since the past to the future things have been growing in goood and bad ways .It also showed me that in the past things start evelating to the future.It also showed me that our population has changed the world so muchTecnology has changed the world and actually growing our education.
12/5/2016 03:03:40 pm
What the video means to me is that it was talking about how our technolgy is going to change through out the years.
12/5/2016 03:04:40 pm
What that video meant to me was that technolgy is growing very fast and so is how we use it. That video was made in 2014 imagine what technology is like today.
