I’m working on a writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
After your presentations and debates, each student needs to upload a brief document (use DOC or PDF format to upload to Canvas) that states your name and student ID#, picks one representative quote from one of the relevant readings (a different one for each group member!), one sentence explaining that quote in your own words, and one or two sentences providing your argument or spin on this quote and its importance.
I attached our groups powerpoint. Please check.
This is our topic: Group 3: You are politicians who argue that internet service providers need to have the ability to throttle or block certain data, for instance to prevent malicious actors spreading disinformation on YouTube or TikTok, to prevent dangerous viral deepfakes on Facebook from derailing elections, and to prevent large-scale file sharing online because you believe it is mostly illegal circumvention of copyright. You are also concerned that certain online activities are a significant burden for the internet that takes bandwidth away from other traffic, so your arguments may present gaming and file sharing as unequal burdens on the network and its expected quality of service.
