Court lines look like this Research Process For my digital literacy project, I chose basketball because I really enjoyed the sport. I also played basketball for 4 years, but never knew any of the famous sport's history: the inventor, the year, the original rules, or other things. But now I know a lot more, and even different sites I can use like Prezi,or Microsoft Photostory. I chose my resources by looking at certain things online to see if they were authoritative, meaning, "Able to be trusted as being accurate or true, or clear authoritative information" I looked at copyright dates, dates that told me when they were updated, the theme, which was someone telling me basketball information on a site about dogs which wouldn't make sense, and grammar and spelling mistakes. Those were big for me when I chose my authoritative websites. Research Process Continued.. I chose prezi because it was n easy site to work with. It's very simple, with very little instructions. I tried other sites like Photostory, but it was too complicated for me. Prezi is also very fun! It isn't a bland boring program like Photostory. Prezi's appearance stood out to me with its neatness and color. I think I learned a lot this quarter. I walked into the class with no knowledge of this, but now I know a lot more! even learned so much more about basketball, and I have a much clearer representation of this. I really enjoyed learning about this.
