Let’s Live Tweet

Something About Aliah

Prior to BCM325, I don’t think I’d ever live tweeted in my life (except maybe during the 7 hour live stream of one direction on 1D Day in 2013 but we don’t talk about that). So coming into class on the first day and being told that’s what we were actually doing was a bit of shock, I guess i should have looked at the subject outline but anyway…

Luckily, I had already, not only seen the first movie Metropolis, but also had done it for English during high school and had an abundance of essays and cursed memories on the film.

Becoming Eco-Friendly…

Something About Aliah

“Human impact has now grown to the point that it has changed the course of Earth in history by at least many millennia” (Williams et al., 2015, 2016).

I have decided to focus on encouraging more eco-friendly use as my Digital Artefact because it is our responsibility, as habitants on Earth, to do something to save our planet! After researching the easiest ways to be more eco-friendly, I have decided that if I can convey this information in a fun, simple way, hopefully it can catch the attentions of young people who can incorporate the ideas into their everyday life and potentially carry it through the rest of their life!
