    In the book, Outliers: The Story of Success, by Malcolm Gladwell, the author is challenging our views of how people become successful. He is saying that to get to where you want to be you can’t rely solely on hard work or determination. It takes much more than that, something that many of us don’t get; opportunities. If you want to be successful, you need a series of opportunities that present themselves to you at the right time, to put you ahead of everyone else. He proves this idea in chapter two by using the rhetorical appeal of logos and ethos. The author also utilizes three different narratives of people who have received opportunities in their lives, which put them on the path to where they are now; Bill Joy, The Beatles, and Bill Gates. Gladwell’s main rhetorical appeal in chapter two, which is named The 10,000-hour rule, is the use of logos. The 10,000-hour rule states that in order to become extremely successful at one thing in life, you would have to have practiced whatever that may be for 10,000 hours. Furthermore, he says that you have to have some sort of opportunity that others do not get, in order for you to be able to put in that many hours. A neurologist, Daniel Levitin, says, “The emerging picture from such studies is that ten thousand hours of practice are required to achieve the level of mastery associated with being a world-class expert – in anything” (Gladwell 40). He also gives examples of how neither the Beatles nor Mozart would have been…

    DIMENSION SEVEN: THE RELATION OF THE OLD TO THE NEW Defining change and a digital workplace Change is inevitable. Change is significantly apparent in ‘New learning’ or ‘21st learning’ as there is a substantial amount of research contributing to the idea of transforming learning environments, in turn, changing ‘classroom’ or ‘learning space’ dynamics. Change can be relative. Cuban (1993) explains that for some teachers substituting textbooks, deciding to implement technology such as computers…

    My Response to Ritchin and Balsamo. From the four reads of the week by Ritchin and Balsamo, my main takeaway from Ritchin was the advancement of digital photography and how it has made it easier for photographers to tell their story through imagery, plus the added effect that tells a false story and Balsamo the unconscious consequence of technological innovations on culture. “Photography, as we have known it, is both ending and enlarging, with an evolving medium hidden inside it as in a…

Imagine a chaotic world where citizens live in constant fear of what could happen to them, because of the lack of safety in their country. Terrorism has especially been an issue in America, and with the growing number of threats, it is impossible to tell when or where domestic attacks may occur.
