EDLD 5316 Week 2 Journal Entry

This week’s topics of net neutrality and digital footprints seem like two subjects that would be easy to talk about but I have no idea where to start. I have noticed my digital footprint showing up more in the last few years. I always noticed it on websites that advertisements would show up with the subject being searches I had previously performed.

I always had an idea that everything was connected but it hit me when I saw it in a game on my phone. If net neutrality is enforced then the tracking couldn’t be used against you, but it your ISP’s can track your digital foot print, limit bandwidth, or charge you more for certain services then your digital footprint becomes a liability.

Professional Learning Strategy for Making and Posting a Video Online

 I knew that I would need to make an outline for this Professional Learning Strategy if I was going to make it through this process.

So each meeting of the professional learning will take place once a week for four months. The first set of meetings will be the instructor and 5 instructors that teach online/hybrid courses. Each of the 6 in the first group will pair into smaller groups to assist each other in between meetings. Then each of the six in the first set of meetings will meet with 2 instructors each and go through the same meetings.
