PLN 13

In the article Keyboard vs. Pen by Virginia Beringer I agree with the results of that article. When writing on the computer I tend to be more lazy with spelling and grammar because I know that the computer will check it and I can go back and fix it when I'm done. While writing I am more careful especially when writing in pen because if I mess up then I have to restart. Since I usually don’t use a keyboard to write, I write I go pretty fast and don’t usually have a lot of mistakes.

In the article "Footprints in the Digital Age" by Will Richardson, he talked about how his kids wouldn't be able to be Googled well. He's not saying they won't be able to use Google but that when they type there names into Google they won't find themselves like they wanted. This also relates to the Digital Footprint article that we read in class. Depending on how big your digital footprint is, is how much and how widley you will be known. An example would be when while I was reading this article I decided to Google myself and it came up with my science fair ranking in the 8th grade at my old middle school. He just talked about how if you want to be able to Google yourself, then you need to get involved.
