“What the Web is For” Project

In school we have been talking about what the web is for. We read about what the web is and what it is used for. Everyone did a project on what they use the web for. We had to pick four words of what we use the web for. Some people did models and some people did there’s in a box/shoe box. I did mine in a shoe box, I divided the box into four rooms.

I use the web for school. I write blogs in school, like I’m doing now. We use Google to research information. We use Google Doc’s to write for ELA, that way we don’t waste paper. Sometimes Mr. Fisher shows us videos and we have to write math questions on what we just saw. As a class, we use Skype to connect with the people in Wingham.

I use the web for instant messaging. I have MSN to connect with people. I connect with people around me, I connect with people I don’t see very often. Most people have Facebook to connect with people. Some people, like Mr. Fisher, connect with people all around the world. There are many instant messaging programs for people to connect.

I use the web for watching t.v. Sometimes when I’m bored I like to watch t.v, but if there is no good shows on, I like to watch t.v shows on the web. The internet has websites that you can watch t.v on. If you ever miss a episode of your favourite show, you can always catch up on the web.

I use the web for music. I like to listen to the newest music. I always listen, and buy music on itunes. I like to listen to music on my i-pod in my spare time.

My shoe box, was divided into four rooms. In one room I made a mini lap top and put itunes on the screen, with a i-pod on the desk, for my music room. For my t.v room I made another mini lap top and drew little people on the screen. In my instant messaging room I put two lap tops back to back, with China on one screen and Canada on the other. For my school room I made a table and put lap tops on the table with “Blog” or Google Doc’s on the screen.

    I think this was a very creative project. I like the way that you divided your piece into rooms. I think you did a good job on each of the rooms. I also like the way that you described how you use the web. You went into great detail with your description. How do you think the web will change our lives in the future? What do you think will be big advancements that are still to come?

      Let me start off saying thank, I can’t really guess what will happen in the future with the web. The web has done so much already! What are your thoughts?

      • Mr. Fisher Says:

        I think the web is going to keep changing for certain. I think more and more information and media (like tv and radio) are going to move online. I think we will use the web a lot more for local information and for connecting with others. I think it will be easier and cheaper to connect with others around the world.

    Wow! I think your blog is awesome! I love how you made a paragraph for every word you used. That’s a lot of writing! I liked how you split your box into four different rooms, one for each. My favourite one was the room for instant messaging, the set-up was genius! What kind of art is your favourite? I like the drawing kind of art. When I grow up, one of the jobs I want to have is being a comic-book illustrator. Again, very cool art, I can’t wait for the next art project!

      Hi, when i started doing my project I really didn’t know how to make it. Mr. Fisher had everyone do a plan but i didn’t go by my plan, I couldn’t find what I needed. I don’t really like to draw (I’m terrible at drawing). I think that is so cool what you want to be!

    Wow! Your art is awesome! It looks pretty hard to put those little pieces into a shoe box. Very colourful, and detailed! You art really shows how and what the web is used for! Sometimes when I try to watch a show on my computer at home, the web slows down, and sometimes stops working. I also you itunes to put songs onto my ipod touch. What song is your favorite? Mine is, well sometimes I can’t decide on just one!

      Thanks, it was pretty hard putting all of those little pieces in there. Well like you I can never decide of a favourite song. What kind of singers do you like?
