    HI, Jenet !!!
    I like your presentation. Although the Internet and other technologies provides us many benefits, we should not forget to think of how to deal with them. My questions are :
    what do you think that SNS such as Facebook and Twitter have negative effects on people’s life ? Also, tech animal like AiBO is good for child to learn about animal’s lives ?

      When there were no Twitter and Facebook, I think that people used to talk more face to face. I am not saying that they are bad, but people seems to be so obsessed
      that maybe they should rethink it a little bit.
      Maybe if the child was interested enough they would want to know about the real animal, but if the toy become more like the animal, I don’t know if he would be interested in the real one because it would not be so obedient, or funny, or so cute.

    Hi Janette,

    Thank you for your presentation

    Jeanette I could not catch your thesis statement, would you tell me about it


    • Janete says:

      Thank you for your reply. My thesis was ” The recent expansion of the Internet and the consequent boost in numbers of chat rooms and all the other forms of interactions using new technology is making personal interaction obsolete.”

    Hello Janete. Thank you for giving a good presentation.
    I also could not catch your thesis. So I suggest you that you should make a short pose before saying your thesis. You may be also slowdown and use different vice tone when you say it.

    Hi Janet,

    I like your presentation structure. I could imagine some cases of that interpersonal communication became less interactive due to technology development.

    As you said, quite often our emotions cannot be clarified as precisely as most machines do. On the other hand, do we really less develop our social abilities (you said “all kinds of social skills”) such as reading other’s expressions? Still some of us can build strong relationships on the Internet very expertly, which can be also categorized into social skill, can’t it?

    Even you chose to give presentation without visual aids, it worked totally well. I caught the main point and took notes correctly (I hope). If I could advise you, I recommend to utilize some visual aid.

    Hi Janete,
    Great presentation, well organized, very informative!!! I like watching you presenting, you always look so in control and so prepare, like you did it hundred times. I was missing a bit visual part, even though it’s not so important. There is just one thing, sometimes when you talk about something it seems like you trying to convince yourself, your tone suggest you asking question, but not rhetorical or audience but yourself. Besides that everything else is perfect.
    Do you see technology as something that effects people negatively, more like an unnecessary evil? Or as something that has a positive impact.

    Hi Janete,

    You gave a nice presentation! Thank you!

    – I liked your idea when you said “the line is blurred between virtual and real world” for socializing. Great words!
    – It’s scary to think that future people might marry a robot!
    – I agree that we are losing social skills with new technology; but are we not gaining new kinds of social skills?
    – Make sure to pronounce all keywords correctly when giving presentations.

    These are just some complements and suggestions that I have for you.
    You did a great job! Thank you!
