When analyzing the academic work I came to my own conclusions rapidly. It is a topic that I was familiar with and have had handy personal experience. However the extra information I read into surround the site ‘About me’ was something which I found to be a joint highlight of this specific task as I was formerly unaware that services like this were available.
The other highlight of the module was the discussion I had around cyber bullying with user ‘Zac Cohen’. After commenting on his blog post we engaged using multiple sources as points of information for each other. He posted a link to a statistics page which I spent a fair amount of time comparing to the tables I had come across myself. Using both these I was able to read the blog post on site http://cyberbullying.org/blog-2, which in turn reinforced my ideas on hiding my online identity in the video game community. The information Zac provided meant that when i read specific blogs to do with cyber bullying in the gaming community such as http://cyberbullying.org/league-legends-cyberbullying I was able to incorporate his ideas on the problem. I would say that my ideas were reinforced as he tended not to criticize my work but instead probed for reasoning behind certain comments.
This topic seems that although alot of people know a little, few people know alot, and it wasnt until I did reading into total supportive and total criticism work that I was able to build my own opinions into a discussion which incorporated both. I hope that future blog posts will lead to the discussions superseding a single comment and reply as I learnt so much more from the active communication with my peers.
On a side note – the reference for the images didn’t save on my blog post. Below are the links to the images in order to give credit to the original owner.
