The city was found by Joseph Junior Gonzalez III when he found gold in the Mines in 1704 and he wanted to keep it a secret from the others. Eventually the Europeans came to Puerto Rico and discovered the rich gold mines and they took advantage of the land. The locals did not like this and a war began in February 1705. The war was big and bloody, but eventually the Europeans won and took over the land. Sadly, Joseph Gonzalez III was killed in the war protecting his land, The city is now filled with mostly white people and they occasionally get visitors for the mines. There are lions at city hall that represent Joseph Junior Gonzalez III and his city.
Media Fluency Reflection
I used Fornite to build the city and there were very few problems, but one thing I did run into was trying to place everything perfectly so that it would look good and it took a long time to make it too.
I was able to use the skills in the planning stage because it guided me through what I was doing and it made the project fun and simple to do on my own.
I did not do any research before I got started on the project, but what makes this town authentic and make believe is the history I made up and different buildings used to create my city.
I feel like there was no other better online software that I could’ve used because I was familiar with the application I used making it easier for me to use and access and I had a lot of experience.
This infographic tell us what a digital footprint is, how to manage our digital footprint to keep safe and the negatives and positives of a digital footprint. I have added to the text by showing ways to improve your digital footprint. I used Canva because it was the best way for me to show my work and it was very helpful through the process of making the infographic. There were many different options and things I could use while using canva. By: Aidan Grewal
Personal/ Social Competency Reflection
Some of the ways I work to build and maintain online relationships are being online frequently on my ps5 with my friends. During covid I have not been able to see my friends as often as I would like to, but a way I have kept in touch with them is gaming online and playing together whenever I could. It helped me get through covid.
I make digital ethical choices such as having all of my accounts private and location turned off in order to keep other people I don’t know to not see my personal information and my life. It makes it easy so I can feel safe at all times.
I think my experiences as a digital citizen, such as being online almost everyday with school and video games influenced my choice of hobbies because it changed from writing down all the notes and studying with flashcards to typing down notes and using quizlet. Now I am more involved wit the internet do to using it more often.
Some words that describe me is that, I play sports like hockey and basketball, I am small, but I have a big voice, and that I enjoy hanging out with my friends. Some of my strengths are that I have good work ethic, I am strong at math, and I enjoy learning. Some of my weaknesses are that I get distracted very easily and it’s difficult for me to focus. I learn best by seeing a visual representation on the concept. I struggle when I am not engaged with what we are doing in the classroom.
YouTube is my favorite website because during this quarantine, I personally have been really bored. I was thinking what to do until I thought of watching YouTube. I love YouTube because there is always new content on there and there is a bug variety of things to watch on there. For example I watch basketball highlights and video games on there. I use the website when I am bored because it cures my boredom.
My Favorite Video
This is my favorite video because Lebron is my favorite basketball player and that it shows what his greatest moments were in his career. He has been my favorite player ever since I was 5 years old.
My Favorite Image
This one of my favorite pictures because I love mystery’s. Any picture of space is cool because there is so much unexplored areas in space that we still have to find. I also like space because, of the colours and the different planets in the universe.
