#EngageMOOC 1


Topic number one

Video introduction:

In this topic they explained what is participatory public engagement? and they meant by this is that how society and citizenship get involved and engage in a democratic way changed due to the high flow of social media. as this course also doesn’t aim on digital citizenship only,  but to people that are new to the online media like facebook. as this course also aims that solutions are not technological. However, education and politics have a huge role in this, and how well that individuals work together may change the form of the society we’re part of. Further more, Maritime Canada, is an area that has 6 generations tradition of youth leaving for the duty jobs. it was said that 100 years ago a movement started which was called Antigonish. it taught Literacy so more people could participate and get involved in the democratic process of that time as well as brought people together.

Topic one Challenge:

Do we look for new encounters or settle in the well-known? This inquiry represent the battle of correspondence barrier. In a world loaded with online networking and examination, the decision of the 5W and H ( how, when, where, etc..) we connect with can unintentionally limit our perspective and decision of the world. In the event that you know about it and connect with importantly inside that restricted utilization design at that point anything outside of that turns into an Other.

A large portion of anyones online arbiter random experiences result from the collaboration of an unknown person’s post or post from somebody I have met and have associated with in web-based social networking. This raises doubt about whether it is irregular since there are known relationship, yet once in a while would someone be able to simply drop into an experience without this.



I remember I was asked when I was young what I would like to be when I’m older. I didn’t have any idea yet and thought about several stuff that would sound and look cool if I became any of them. Maybe a Pilot, police officer, or even a successful business man. I had lots of ideas but never stuck on one. Lately, i have been thinking in the same question again and questioning myself where do I see myself in the next 20 years or so. Still couldn’t find an answer to it. You see, my perspective in life is not in what degree you aim to get or the perfect career to pursue. Yes, these are an important factors in life to live in a comfortable state. However, life to me has a huge meaning other than these factors. For example, quality time with your beloved ones. Ever thought to yourself if you’re spending the right amount of time with your family instead of hanging out with your friends or spending time on anything else less important? Aiming to help the poor or people who are sick that are unable to help themselves rather than paying tons of money on our wants to satisfy our minds and figure. Im not trying to assert that enjoying your time is wrong but in time I guarantee you’ll be begging for these moments to come and you wont have the chance to act upon any. A wise man once told me in a similar words “the real aim of life is to pursue the happiness of others before yourself, and when you satisfy those people you’ll will instantly find inner peace.” Thats what I will be looking forward to try to achieve through out my life, along with my degree hopefully. That’s what I will be mostly proud of if I seek to satisfy as many people as I can. #altcv
