How might the repeal of net neutrality contribute to conflicts for American students' opportunities for learning?
Conflicts are apposed of apposing forces: I think we deserve a 3 because we put all of the information but forgot to put the QR code on it.
Conflicts are natural or man-made: The repeal of net neutrality is a man-made decision because a group of people (FCC) had decided on this.
Conflicts are intentional or unintentional: This conflict is intentional since Congress and the FCC agreed on the repeal of net neutrality.
Conflict may allow for synthesis or change: The repeal of net neutrality may change the amount of usage of the internet now that people have to pay for access to websites and students will not be able to find educational sites.
Conflict is progressive: After the repeal of net neutrality the conflict will progress since it has not yet been enacted so students will experience the changes in the near future.

What I learned that was new what that the reason that the ISP is charging to put companies in the fast is so that smaller companies will not be able to afford it and once they are eliminated then they will use the same idea but make it ISP controlled. During our exploration we changed our topic from net neutrality to education but we had to implement the changes into our driving question to make it, How might the repeal of net neutrality contribute to conflicts within America’s education system? Some information that I hope to find is if America will have to eventually change their whole school system so that they are less or completely not affected by the repeal of the net neutrality. Collaboration is going okay but one thing that is not working well is going to after school mentorship because everyone has a different schedule so it is hard to find a date that all of us can go to. One thing that is working well is the article tags because we can all communicate well.
SInce the last time, I have learned that a lot of states are suing the FCC because they do not agree with the repeal. This is important because it will force the FCC to bring back net neutrality because they do not want to lose money so they will either consider loosening the restrictions or completely bring back net neutrality. We are going to a survey so that we can make a price to know how much a state will have to pay for internet usage instead of other resources like textbooks and utensils and not to mention teacher’s pay. The thing that has been hardest was coming up with questions and making sure that they make sense and they are clear to the reader. Some things that we can do to make it better is get a second opinion on our work to make sure that it makes sense. Our collaboration is going okay right now because we work together and we communicate well and we all know each other and split the work evenly with each other.
What I have learned about my topic lately is that most people that took the survey spend around 3-4 hours on a school network and that most people depend on it. I learned that I really do depend on my team because I'm having a rough time in my personal life right now and it's nice to be able to depend on others to help and I'm thankful for them. We want to make our tri-fold school/education theme to show that our focus is on the impact on the school system. We are going to do a painting on top of the board and it is going to have books and a laptop and a backpack to symbolize that many people depend on their computers/technology and now after the repeal, they are going to have you depend more on books and other resources. We will need to make our ISD perfect, our survey responses, and to make our board look aesthetically pleasing and make sense. Our collaboration is going strong but some of us are starting to slack a bit which puts more pressure on the others so now we need to go into maximum focus on this project to make it perfect and we're aiming to make it the best net neutrality related symposium project this year and hopefully many after.
Our new driving question is "How might the repeal of net neutrality contribute to conflicts for American Students’ opportunities for learning?" Some revisions that we made were to change some of our big idea chart because it didn’t link up with our new driving question so we made changes to that. I learned that it was important to make revisions because then out project would have looked odd and not made sense. I learned that it is important to do the necessary steps to find scholarly websites because then it could potentially ruin the whole project because then no one would believe the rest of our research. I learned that if you are not prepared and not confident in yourself while presenting that you will stutter and forget valuable information to tell the audience. I think that me and Nathan collaborated okay but Alex did not really do anything. If I could have done anything differently, I would have done this project by myself because then it would save me a lot of trust and respect for others. I learned that creativity comes from emotions and knowledge on a subject and without knowledge and emotion you will not be creative. Some advice that I would personally give incoming students would be to really choose your partners VERY wisely and if they start to not do anything then to kick them out of the group because it will take a toll on the project.
