There are two articles that draw the common interest in domains “Do I Own My Domain If You Grade It?” and “The Web We Need To Give Students.” Domains can be used and owned by almost everyone in this day and age. Schools all across the country are giving student’s their own domains. A real domain in which the student has full control and ownership of. The first article, “Do I Own My Domain If You Grade It” talks about how students do not have true ownerships of their domains, due to the fact they often need to use their domains for assignments given to them by teachers, those of which will be graded. The second article, “The Web We Need To Give Students” focuses on the ways in which we can make the web better for students, such as access, ownership, agency, and presence online. Personally, I believe that domains are great opportunities for people to express feelings about any particular topic, idea, etc. I believe both articles are both true in that sense. My favorite quote from these two articles comes at the end of “Do I Own My Domain If You Grade It”. The quote it “The question bigger than data ownership is how to make ownership over ideas happen.” I believe this question hits home with a lot people. All together the web is a great place for anyone to express feelings, ideas, thoughts, etc. However when things like this happen how do we know who spoke, heard, felt the words written on our screens. At the end of the day the web is a great place and has made a lot of things of today easier.
