Activity 1: Reflection
Upon reflecting my journey in carrying out the first activity. I personally have been blessed and honoured to be assgined with such a challenging, hectic yet productive and a rewarding project. The first activity required the research and investigation of a chosen theorist. Upon selecting my theorist (Karl Marx), I wasted no chance then to commence my findings. Fortunately, the SOF02 Course Book provided me with the relevant facts and details and also the internet which enabled me to acquire an image of my chosen theorist. From my findings, I have come to comprehend how Karl Marx played a critical role in the field of sociology, especially as being one of the custodians who contributed to the growing acceptance of sociology in the 19th century.
Conversely, rough seas, steep mountains and bumpy rides are what I may describe my journey through MAHARA, yet in complying with the given procedures, I was able to enhance my computer skills and as well broaden my thinking capacity.
In doing what was required ( research of a theorist), I undertook group discussions and team collaboration. Honestly writing, I haven't been well versed and well equiped with computer literacy works. Therefore, I had to seek team help. This turned out successful at the end where all of my fellow collegues had collaborated and networked which resulted in a win - win basis (mutual benefits).
Through team collaboration, it made an enormous impact in the final outcome of the situation, where I was able to complete my first assigned activity and submit for sighting.
From the experiance, I have learnt about time management, of which I had to complete two other assignments and study of an MST. This experiance taught me to be balanced and dedicated to what is essential in life. I have eventually been able to utilize my intrinsic skills of being vocal and active during group discussions. I strongly believe with potential qualities, it can help an ordinary individual make a difference in society.
Vinaka, Danyavaad, Thank you so much.
Activity 1: Theorist
Short Clip of Karls Theory.
Introductory Clip on Ebrary.
Ebrary provides the platform that can help students find relevant journals of Sociology. As I have chosen this journal titiled "TAHITI Beyond the Postcard - Power, Place and Everyday Life" it has really captivated my interest. Since sociology is the study of 'society', I interestingly chose this journal from 'ebrary' because it discussed how the people of Tahiti lived there life during the primitive years uptill today. This applied journal also talks about how colonial powers ruled societies in Tahiti and how their influence have drastically affected the lives of the Tahitians. The last segment of the journal strucked me by surprise as the quotation states" E Aha Atu Ra" meaning 'what will happen'. Due to the French Government intervention and governance, although still governing today, the way of life of the Tahitians has drastically changed, this changes occurs in language, social strutures and standards of living. This journal provides SOF02 students an imaginative scenery to really look at how social structures in society is slowly breaking down due to outside forces.
Conversely, The title of this journal speaks volume itself, which was why I was in great keen to choose it apart from the many other journals available. Getting the opportunity to learn about how to use the ebrary and proquest has been an overwhelming experiance, especially in learning something totally different. Sociology has given me an insight to many incredible facts, theories, theorists and opportunities that are beyond explaination.
Activity 2: Reflection.
As I reflect on my experiance while carrying out Activity 2, I'm proud to say that it has been an exciting, interesting and a helpful assignment while sailing through MAHARA. Honestly, at first it was hectic and really nerve wrecking, but with paitence, I fortunately updated and continued with my work.
Activity 2 required the use of the USP Library database for ebrary or proquest and selecting an online soure and later reflecting on it. On the 9th of September, we were so fourtunate to have a lab session with Mr Tevita Jitoko as he clearly explained and enlightend us on how to use MAHARA and sharpen our skills and knowlege on ways to carry out the activity.
In carrying out activity 2, my confindece level was greatly boosted by the facilitator (Mr Jitoko) and our SOF02 Lecturer (Mrs Manueli), hence, I was able to complete my activity 2 before hand and help my other collegues on ways to enhace their e - Portfolio page. Therefore, we worked as a team and thus the benefits were shared equally. Through this action of team work, it affected the final product of our activity as we were able to fullfil all the requirments and submit for sighting.
From this experiance, I have come to learn so many incredible aspects of MAHARA and especially on online tools. I know that with this skill and knowledge, it will greatly boost my academic performance in the future. I have learnt to be helpful and paitent while using the computer as it takes time to boot its operations and also be a source of assitance to my collegues. I have also grasped the basic values of life that is 'caring' and 'sharing' the little ideologies we have.
As an inspirational writer Albert Schweitzer once said"The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others."
Vinaka, Danyavaad and Thankyou.
Activity 3: Short Snippert on Gmail Usages
Activity 3 : Gmail as an Online Interactive Tool.
Gmail is an online tool used for social interaction,it involves a sender and a reciever. Gmail is one of the pioneer email company that was established in 2004 as an 'invitation only' mailing website before it became available to the general public in 2007. As of today, there are more than 425 million users and according to Paul Buchheit (American gentlemen who created Gmail) stated that registered gmail users are drastically increasing everyday. This online interaction tool (Gmail) has boosted interaction of today's social life as it constantly upgrades its system to satisfy growing demands, i.e. the availability of messages in 57 different languages with an increase storage capacity offer of 1 GB per user. Hence it significantly increases the webmail standards of online users and holistically, enhances connectivity and boosts interaction between people.
The use of emails, particularly '' Gmails'' comes with numerous optimistics and pessimistics.
Advantages include the efficiency in transmission, whereby it is cheaper and faster compared to traditional post. Secondly, emails can be sent and received from any computer in the world aslong it has internet connectivity and thirdly, emails can be sent to one person or several people.
On the negative side, factors consisdered includes the prompt widespread of viruses when sent from one computer to another. Secondly, there is considerable high number of spam mails with todays ever increasing technological knowledge e.g junk mail and lastly, Phishing is constantly taking its toll in regards to economic gains i.e sending an email to a user falsely claiming to be a legitimate company to scam the user such as personal information and bank account numbers and later using the details to identify theft.
These are the dark sides of emails yet taking into account its positive aspects in regards to social interaction.
Activity 3 : Reflection
Upon reflecting my journey while carrying out my activities on MAHARA and particularly Activity 3. I personally have been overwhelmed and privilleged to be assigned with such activities that are appealing and captivating.
Rough seas, steep mountains, sleepless nights and bumpy rides are what I describe my experiance while going through MAHARA, especially trying to complete all my assignments, but at the end of the day, it was all worth the struggle. Activity 3 required the research of a reliable online tool used for social interaction and finding its advantages and disadvantages in regards to social interaction.
Fortunately, the available web in school made my work easier as it enabled me to find a relevant social interaction tool (online) used on a daily basis by millions of people world wide. Hence, I was able to complete my activity 3 and avail my time for my other collegues who needed help on how to enhance their e - Porfolio page.
Therefore, we worked as a team and thus the benefits were shared equally. Through this action of team work, it made a huge difference at the end as we were able to fulfill all the requirements and submit for sighting.
From this experiance, I have learnt so many incredible aspects of MAHARA, and especially getting to do something totally different and unique. Iam blessed to be taking Sociology and I only wish if it continues. However, in everything, there is a beginning and an end. As we complete off this semester, Iam proud to say that I have learnt, inspired, motivated, educated and uplifted the spirits and hearts of my peers who were finding difficulties in compiling there work online.
In conclusion, e-Portfolio has opended doors of opportunities where I have learnt to be caring, helpfull, and most importantly to persevere and dedicated to what is essential in life. I strongly believe that we can become agents of change if people learn to appreciate the core values of life and to share the little ideologies we have for the benefits of others.
An inspirational proverbs states " A friend in need, is a friend indeed"
