New Communication Technology- talking to people online.

While talking or meeting people online may seem fun, it is important to remember that it provides people with the temptation to pretend to be someone they’re not! This video clearly displays this, while keeping it light and funny.

Introductory post

Hi all,

My name is Caillin Palmero and I am a 19 year old girl currently studying at Griffith University on the Gold Coast. I am in my first year of a Bachelor of Journalism and definitely finding it interesting! For my class ‘New Communication Technology’ we were asked to create a blog, with the first post being an introduction to ourselves. So I figured I may as well include a couple of standard/ cliche things.

First of all, I’d like to expand on my University experiences. After graduating from high school in 2012, I decided to do a Bachelor of Journalism because I already found the field interesting and worthwhile, and felt that it was something that I would enjoy doing. I was supposed to start this course in 2013 however I had to defer due to illness! I am especially interested in broadcast journalism and hope to learn more about it as I continue my degree. I also really enjoy film itself and look forward to doing more screenwriting courses.  The main reason I chose ‘New Communication Technology’ as an elective was because it was one of those subjects that were compulsory to complete if I wanted to do certain subjects in 2nd and 3rd year. However so far so good- the course seems like it will be quite interesting and I’ll hopefully have a lot of fun learning. 

Outside of Uni, I really love watching TV series’ and movies, as well as listening to music and going to live gigs. I think there is nothing better than hearing your favourite band live! I also enjoy going to the beach and I really enjoy taking photos and have a small collection of cameras (both film and digital). I thought I should admit that I do have a cat, but she looks like Garfield which is great. Finally, I really enjoy travelling overseas and being immersed in different cultures! I can’t wait to explore the world more!

So that’s basically it for me!
