“I’m sure you’ll understand my point of viewWe know each other mentally” Like the catchy phrase in the song physical by Olivia Newton John , the first topic of the ONL192 was about online participation and digital literacies, or in other words, about become a digital user, the consequences and responsibilities in our daily physical […]
Concluding all the discussions and reflections our group engaged in during the first topic on online participation and digital literacies would result in a short novel. Therefore, I have decided to only reflect upon the categorization of individuals in visitors/residents, or even natives/immigrants.

As I started the course it was very interesting to me that because of technology we connect with different types of cultures from all over the world. The dynamics in my group are great.
