This slide show shows some of my work in Online reporting, research and writing class. These pictures are for our class blog , my blog page, fusion tables, my twitter account, and an example of one my blogs which is titles how to minimize bias in our reporting.
I came across a news article titled Has the Border Wall Begun, and this article mentioned that president Donald Trump declared that the construction of the wall between the United States and Mexico has began. This article included a picture that was described as an image of the construction of the Border wall. Therefore, I wanted to verify and check both the article and the image that was included as well. I used politifact.com to verify both the article and the image that has been used. The used image on this article has been tweeted by Donald Trump, and he stated that the image as “great briefing this afternoon on the start of our southern border wall!”. Politifact.com mentioned that this article is mostly false, and it mentioned that there are undergoing projects to replace fencing but that doesn’t include any constructions for the border wall supported by the Donald Trump administration. “There are projects underway along parts of the border to improve or replace fencing, but none of that includes any of the eight border wall prototypes ordered by the Trump administration.” (Valverde, 2018). Also, the image that Donald Trump tweeted isn’t for the border wall construction as he mention; rather, the image was for the construction to improve the fencing.
Maroney who is a gold medal gymnast said that she was molested “everytime” she would be treated by Larry Nassar. It is unbelievable how many girls are having the courage to speak out on what had happen to them during their treatment with Larry Nassar.
My second data story was titled the Importance of Technology Integration in Teaching and Learning. I used different sources that explained how technology integration could improve the way teachers teach and the way students learn. The first source was titled Learning and Schooling in the Age of Mobilism which talked about how technology had became part of everyone’s life and the importance of including technology in our education system. The second source is titled The Impact of Education Technology on Student Achievement, and this source included different studies that talked about the impact of technology integration on students’ achievement. The third source is professor Mesut Duran, and he is an educational technology professor in the University of Michigan Dearborn. The fourth sources is an article about the TPACK model which stands for Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge. The fifth source talked about Howard Gardner which led to the sixth source which was about Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory. Last source I used was Professor Stein Brunvand who is the associate dean for the master’s programs, and the director for the educational technology program in the University of Michigan Dearborn.
