What I learned in Digital World

Digital World 2020, taught by Professor Emilio Salgueiro, was a class I took my first semester at Temple University. Coming into the class I had little knowledge about how media and technology worked and was created. Throughout the course I learned computing, internet basics, and programming. I was taught how to compute in different languages like Binary and ASCII. I was taught about are internet and how it is run in our world. Through labs like building a turtle racetrack, I learned how to program. During the class we also went on a field trip to the Computer Recycling Center at Temple University. I learned how the CRC restores and refurbishes different technological devices and then sells them at affordable prices for students. I enjoyed working on our group project where I was bale to learn more about my classmates majors and the Adobe applications. In the end, the class helped me learn more in-depth skills about technology and taught me things I never would have learned without taking the class!

My Favorite Technology

iPad-I love the iPad, it is my favorite piece of technology that I own. The iPad is useful because it is a smaller computer and can be easily transported. It allows me to surf the web, watch videos, work on projects, email, and text. I view the iPad as a bigger phone but smaller laptop. In high school I was required to have an iPad, so I have a lot of experience using one and have owned a few different ones. While I am transferring over to using a laptop for college, I still use my iPad for recreational activities.

Other pieces of technology that I own:

  • iPhoneX
  • Play Station 4
  • HP Pavilion Laptop
  • Hisense Roku Tv
