Podcasts – A New Media

Before taking Composition and New Media I had no idea what a podcast was, I would always see it in in iTunes but I never knew what it was supposed to do. In this class I learned that a Podcast is a type of audio digital media that anyone can use to get their ideas and opinions on different topics out there. I learned how to take an audio recording and how to fix it or add more things, like music, to my liking. It was a very interesting experience, one that I never expected but enjoyed either way.


Technology Taking Over Our Lives

1. What’s your opinion on the use of technology in our daily lives?
My opinion is that it’s bad to have technology in our daily lives because there are people who spend their whole time on it and students use technology for not so good purposes. For example, in school they can take a test and maybe use their phones to cheat. They could also be using phones daily all the time and could start losing their vision from using it too much and the brightness of the screen.

2. Do you believe that technology might take over schools one day?
Yes, I do believe that technology might take over schools one day because now people are starting to use the internet to take classes. I believe that in the future people would just have to go online and take classes and then they’re “school” day would be over. There would also be no more books since we would just read books from little iPads.

3. What do you think a life without technology would be like?
I honestly think life would be hard because we use a lot of technology to communicate with each other. For example, there are people who are immigrants and use phones to communicate with each other from different countries. Also, we use technologies (such as machines) to build houses or big buildings.

The importances of techonology

How many times you use technology a day?(Yama)
– I use technology a lot each day, it’s hard to keep count. Whether it’s waking up using alarm clock in my cell phone or using my computer to check my emails, technology is pretty important in my day to day life.


Can you stop using technology for a while and how would it affect it?(Yadira)
– I don’t think I’d be able to live without technology completely, maybe without a computer or a cell phone for a few hours. But, I feel like I’ve become so dependent on technology that I wouldn’t be able to survive. (Dimitry)

What would you do without technology? (Yadira & Yama) 
– Without technology, I would probably not know what to do with my time and how to do certain tasks. It would be interesting to see how the world would function without technology for a day. (Dimitry)

Answering Questions: Jesmarly Espinal

1. I use technology to communicate and interact with others. I rely on technology in many ways.
2. Life without technology to me will be a disaster. Technology is important. Without technology I wont be able to communicate or interact with others.
3. If I had to decide between technology and nature it would be nature because of technology you can lose a lot of experience throughout the world. Technology is used a lot by many people but the more people spend on technology the less time they experience the world in person. Technology is taking power over nature that is what I believe.
