part 2 evaluating websites


    e) 3 things that make treehugger a reliable site is that it has a gatekeeper and a publisher and it has at the bottom of the page a help and authors name.

    f) well wikapedia to me is not a reliable site because the site doesn't have a gatekeeper so anyone can post anything and also some of the facts are wrong. wikapedia is not reliable to me..

     a) entertainment, news, current information on something, videos, laws, and etc.
     b) i use video websites like youtube, also intsagram and i use news websites to find out new information on like weather.
     c) authority, currency, coverage, objectivity and accuracy. i use mostly currency and accuracy because they have to be up to date and if they are not then it might be the wrong thing u are reading. accuracy is the one of the most important if it has wrong info on the page then you could totally mess up on a project if you are looking at a website with no accuracy.


  a) site 1 is a non reliable site because it has wrong information and has not enough info one the subject.
      site 2 is a reliable site because it has accuracy on the info and has a lot of information on this subject.

  b) well site one doesn't and site two does.

  c) site 1 is a bad website and site 2 is a good website

evaluating websites part 1


   a) ethos means credibility to a website, book or anything else.

   b) an authoritative site is a website that  has  reliable  information that has a gatekeeper.

   c) it is important to have a gatekeeper because if you have a high authority website then the information that goes on to your web page must have real proof the thing happened or that the information you are giving is true. a gatekeeper is the one who helps you with your website making sure that the information you are giving is true. some websites don't have a gatekeeper so the website is not reliable because the information they are giving might not be true.

   d) the television news article might be enough information, but it really isn't because the anchor has only a small time to talk about to news information

digital literacy

   a) i do not agree or disagree because the article has two strong points to each side, but if i had to choose it would be i disagree because it says that technology will take over in the future. i think it won't take over it will help us even more.

   b) this statement doesn't really mean a lot to me, but i say that we shape or future and technology doesn't. this is what the statement means to me.

    c) digital literacy means to me technology that we use to help use, but we can't touch it because it is on a screen. we are still able to see it. visual literacy means that you can see it but it doesn't have a screen it has no screen so you can touch it and you can look at it.
    d) i have not used any of these programs except for one that is youtube. that is were i watch videos and new information that can be serious or hilarious.


   a) the programs are for voice overs projects.

    b) you could use these programs in a project if you are using the internet or any type of technology.

     c) pros are that they are fun to do but the cons are that your program could be deleted if not saved.

     d) i might use it because it might be use full to me in the future.
