3. Identify and discuss how the issues of real identity and virtual identity area feature inscience fiction films. In addition discuss the following: Are we sacrificing privacy, self expression, human connection,or other important values when we engage more and more with virtual worlds?

Task word: Identify, Discuss

Main Topic: Identify and discuss how the issues of real identity and virtual identity area feature in science fiction films.

Sub topic: Are we sacrificing privacy, self expression, human connection,or other important values when we engage more and more with virtual worlds?

Key words: Identity.

Platform for discussion: Science fiction film.


When I decided to go for this topic, I researched a bit more about Sherry Tuckle and Marc Prensky which are Daniel had mentioned them in class.

“When an individual explores an alternate persona, an understanding of other lifestyles and situations can be achieved”
“A singular personality is much more limited”

– Sherry Tuckle

Virtual world allows human to have more freedom and flexible lifestyles by using a virtual identity. Probably it is one of the reason people obsessed on having a virtual identity and act whatever they want, but the issues that mentioned in the sub topic like will it change the value of human connection can be further discuss.
