My Digital Life – Digital Media

Last week I talked about the role that media plays in our daily lives and specifically about illustrating how traditional types of media (e.g. television, newspapers, radio) were one-way conduits of information. Continuing that discussion, I then talked with my students about digital media, which they were of course A LOT more familiar with. Our discussions focused on the many ways that digital media allows us to contribute to the conversation; that information can flow in more than just one direction.

I know, I know, how did I illustrate the concept of digital media in an way that was comparable to the “Kids React to Technology” videos. Can you say, “Parents React to Technology?”

Enter The Selfie Stick, stage right.
