Topic 1:

Do you agree with the professor’s opinion? Is it possible to learn while multi-tasking? Why or why not?

I’m afraid I have to disagree with the professor’s opinion when it comes to multi-tasking in the ability to learn. When I first started in my career field, it was and very much still is a fast-moving position with multiple developments happening simultaneously. I have learned over the years that I can comprehend a new assignment while multi-tasking on other time-sensitive projects. This ability has helped me immensely while attending school and completing coursework while traveling for my profession.

Topic 2:

How have technological developments in radio, television, the Internet, OR newspaper (SELECT ONE) influenced mass communication? Support your response.

I feel that the internet developments have positively and negatively influenced miscommunication amongst the world. Many governmental agencies use numerous Internet platforms to cut down their time to inform citizens about ongoing matters and developing incidents. Nevertheless, the widespread use of the internet has made it easier to influence individuals negatively and spread harmful ideologies that can potentially harm communities.

Topic 3:

Which ONE of the eight “hopeful” theses do you see as the most hopeful? Explain your choice.

I decided to select number two for this question as my “hopeful theses.” Having many friends and prior colleagues stationed around the world, I feel that a more connected globe will enhance relationships and minimize discourse. At the same time, it will also aid many nations in building friendships and collaborating together to create a better world for all.

Topic #1: Digital Media

Do you agree with the professor’s opinion? Is it possible to learn while multi-tasking? Why or why not? Yes, I agree with the professor’s statement, and I don’t believe it is possible to learn while multi-tasking. As the Distracted by Everything video stated, the people who think they are the best at multitasking are the worst. (Dretzin and Rushkoff, 2010) The brain can only focus on one thing at a time, and when you introduce multiple topics at once, I don’t see how each topic can get the attention it needs. If you are looking at a text while listening to a teacher talk, you are going to miss information the teacher might say in those few seconds. Then you have to regroup and get caught up with what the teacher said.

Topic #2: Digital Media’s Impact on Society

How have technological developments in radio, television, the Internet, OR newspaper (SELECT ONE) influenced mass communication? Support your response.

Technological developments in radio have influenced mass communication because the radio started to contact ships out at sea, and people could contact the military in real-time. It wasn’t till the 1920s that the radio was in homes for private use, and people would listen to it for world news. (Wood) Radio is one mass media that started out spreading information and is used for entertainment. The downside is that it is a one-way medium, so there is no person-to-person communication, so you are taking in the ideas of whoever is running that station. Now the radio is everywhere and has transformed into podcasts. Today, there are millions of podcasts, and people use these podcasts to get their ideas out to the masses with the same passion.

Topic #3: Digital Future

Which ONE of the eight “hopeful” theses do you see as the most hopeful? Explain your choice.

The “hopeful” theses I see as most hopeful is #4 Augmented reality, and wearable devices will be implemented to monitor and give quick feedback on daily life, especially tied to personal health. (Anderson and Rainie, 2010) I see these wearable devices being hopeful because most people do not see a doctor regularly, and wearing one of these devices to monitor health could detect any diseases or medical issues before they become deadly. These devices could also let you know if you need a specific medication to lower your blood pressure or monitor diabetes.

Topic 1

I agree with Professor Turkle’s assessment as distractions in multi-tasking cause a lack of retention when presented with important information. While it is possible to learn and understand basic concepts or ideas, it does not create an ideal learning environment to master those concepts and stifles analytical reasoning needed to dive deeper. Overactive brain activity and multi-tasking can affect productivity in both the short and long term.

Topic 2

With the advent of online journalism, newspapers have shifted to maintain a dual audience of old and new readership with the release of articles in both print and online form. These technological developments have sped up the news cycle allowing for quicker digestion of information and faster output online. With this, journalistic styles themselves have evolved into more compact and personal writing styles. This runs parallel to the journalistic code. Newspaper editors and journalists across the board still maintain a level of integrity with factual, evidence-based stories and reliable sources.

Topic 3

I see “the spread of the Internet will enhance global connectivity that fosters more planetary relationships and less ignorance,” as most helpful as it will create global empathy. Being able to experience another culture through technology can aid in emotional intelligence, breaking down harmful stereotypes and allowing the sharing of cultures in an environment where all parties feel safe and connected. What was once a foreign idea can become the norm through information sharing.
