Digital Youth Portrait: Luis

Luis seems like a hard working person. He gets up early to get his brother and himself to school each day, takes AP classes, and is even in after school programs. His parents, being immigrants, do not seem to speak English and he tutors them on how to use the internet. Which, to me, is pretty remarkable. I can relate to him because I myself check my facebook account every morning before school and when I return. I think social networking sites allow people to keep in contact all over the world. Making it simpler to keep in touch with friends and family. While watching this video, I reflected on my own experiences with technology. I hope by the end of this class that I too will be able to tutor my own parents or the parents of the students in my classroom about all the different options the internet provides us.
