Talking Point # 6 on Glee

Watching the show Glee was something that was new to me therefore, I did not know what to expect. As, I  was watching the show glee I decided to use the grinner article to compare with the show  Glee because I believed  it can relate  to the SCWAPP ideology. For instance,  I noticed that the character in the show were enforce to do things that  became a factor  in their life , and had to overcome the factors to be able to fit in.  All the characters are straight but one which is gay. Kurt was treated different because he was gay and was bully by the other classmates in school.  As, I was watching the show I noticed that religion was not a norm and was not hardly brought up.  Now whiteness was a huge norm in the show mostly all the character were white and few were minorities.  However, one thing that I dislike about the show was that there was hardly any diversity and it was ignored.  I felt that the kid in the wheel was always labeled as “The kid in the wheel chair” and also I felt that he was represented awful. For example, if a person who is disabled was to watch this show it would make the person feel bad about being in a wheelchair because the way the kid in the wheelchair is treated in the show.  I felt that people treated him nice because they felt bad because he was in a wheelchair. Being American was also a huge norm for the reason that mostly all the charters were American and all the music were American.  One important dominate that there was in the show Glee was maleness.  Males in the show had lots of power and were looked upon to because they were cool. However, it was not like that for Kurt because being gay and feminine was a major weakness in the show.
      Overall, watching the show for the first time was not bad it was interesting and I will not mind watching it again.

Extended Commentss: Teens in a Digital Age

 In the article written by Michael Welsh he discusses the different levels of technology and social media and how it can be positive influence toward education. In today society numerous of teachers don’t acknowledge the positive view of technology. However, the way teachers look at technology is negative and don’t believe that it can be useful while teaching students.  
             As, I was reading jasmine blog on the article written by Welsh I do agree with a point she made which was “In the elementary school I had went to we were just gaining access to computers and pone systems” (Jasmine) I agree, with that point because when I was in middle school we just started to get computers but we hardly used it because to teachers it was not a good way of teaching students. However, I believe that technology in education felid as become a main priority for the reason that is there are so many different ways to teach with technology. For instance, I love how Dr.Bogad teaches class by PowerPoint, blogs, videos I feel that is a great way to keep the student engages in class rather than just reading off a book and writing papers. Another, point jasmine made that I agreed with was” I may argue is that technology for the future generations is something that could change things. Children now days are relying on technology for learning” (Jasmine). The statement that Jasmine made I, highly agreed with her because in today generation technology has become very powerful. For, instance I have little cousins that are 8 years old and know how to use a computer I believe better than me. I also, have a little niece that is 2 years old  and I put learning games on the laptop for her and she plays very well and has learned her colors and numbers. Therefore I believe that technology is great.
