Transcript

  • 1. Personal and Social Media
  • 2. Personal and Social Media
    People have integrated personal and social media into vital parts of their lives
    Skype, Internet, Cell Phone
    Results: Media has shaped how we think, work, interact with others, and participate in our communities
  • 3. Traditional vs. Personal and Social Media
    The main difference between Traditional and Personal and Social Media has been: DIGITILIZATION
    EXAMPLE: VOIP has become easier for military families to comm. over seas
  • 4. CHANGES OVER TIME WITH COMMUNICATION
    WRITTEN COMMUNICATION
    TELEPHONIC COMMUNICATION
    COMPUTER-MEDIATED COMMUNICATION
    ELECTRONIC CONFERENCING
    INTERCONNECTED COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES
  • 5. WRITTEN COMMUNICATION
    POSITIVES
    RECORDS, TRANSFERS AND WORKS WITH INFORMATION
    USED VIA LETTERS, BOOKS, ARTICLES, ECT.
    LEAVES A PAPERTRAIL
    NEGATIVES
    TAKES TIME AND EFFORT
    GRAMMATICAL AND WORD USAGE ERRORS
    USUALLY IGNORED
  • 6. TELEPHONIC COMMUNICATION
    ORIGINAL INTENT WAS FOR SOMEONE TO REACH OUT TO PEOPLE THEY WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO NORMALLY VIA SOUND.
    EVOLVED INTO CELLPHONES
    NEGATIVES
    NO WAY TO SEE NON-VERBALS
  • 7. COMPUTER-MEDIATED COMMUNICATION
    Positives
    FIRST INVENTED BY IBM IN 1940
    THOMAS WATSON THOUGHT THERE WOULD ONLY NEED TO BE 5 COMPUTERS THAT THE ENTIRE WORLD WOULD NEED
    IN THE 1970’S THOUSANDS OF HOUSEHOULDS HAD COMPUTERS
    75% OF PEOPLE NOW USE THE INTERNET AND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS HAVE PERSONAL COMPUTERS
    Negatives
    Some functions have no paper trail, i.e. email
  • 8. Electronic Conferencing
    Teleconferencing: a term that describes the discussion among people who are geographically separated.
    Different types include:
    Audio conferencing
    Computer conferencing
    Video conferencing
  • 9. Interconnected Communication Technologies
    Extension and convergence of technologies already present.
    These technologies interconnect various devices to each other and to the internet so users don’t have to independently configure each new system.
  • 10.
  • 11. Controversies about Personal and Social Media
    How do computer technologies affect thinking?
    How do online communities affect social relations?
    Do newer technologies increase productivity?
  • 12. How Do Computer Technologies Affect Thinking
    Encourage multitasking
    Encourage response to visual stimuli
    Discourage independent, critical thinking
  • 13. Multitasking
    Engaging in multiple tasks simultaneously or in rapid sequence in overlapping and interactive ways
    Computers facilitated multitasking, but is no longer limited to computer usage
  • 14. Can We Multitask?
    Ironically, computers do not multitask
    A computer executes each operation individually in sequence at a very rapid pace
    Because a computer gives its full attention to a single task at a time, it does the task with great accuracy
  • 15. Downsides of Multitasking
    Adults who shift between two tasks take longer to do both tasks and make more mistakes
    Since you pay attention to several things at once, you don’t go into any one thing in depth
  • 16. Downsides of Multitasking
    Multitasking can make us feel rushed, hurried, always needing to check our email, texts, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • 17. FYI: Drvngwhltxtng (326)
    Talking on a cell phone was no different than talking to a passenger
    Then safe to drive with hands-free set
    Now everything is dangerous
    Phone conversations are the most distracting activity
  • 18. Encourages Response to Visual Stimuli
    We rely on screens to read text messages and to communicate online
    Thus, computers teach us to expect new stimuli continuously
    We learn to response to dazzling and vibrant graphics
  • 19.
  • 20. PowerPoint
    Utilized by this and several other groups to present information
    Gives the impression that bullets are equivalent to clear thinking
    Before we have time to analyze the relationship between bullet and main points
  • 21. PowerPoint
    The slide changes, and we now concentrate on the new set of bullets
  • 22. PowerPoint
    PowerPoint’s emphasis on quick, visually striking presentation of information doesn’t encourage analytical or integrative thinking about the actual content
  • 23. Discourage Independent Critical Thinking
    Make it easy to rely on external authorities
    Undermine imaginative thought
    Discourage independent thought
  • 24. External Authorities
    Spell check on your PC
    Many people now do not know proper grammar, syntax, and punctuation
  • 25. Spell Check
    I have a spelling checkerIt came with my PCIt highlights for my reviewMistakes I cannot sea.I ran this poem thru itI'm sure your pleased to noIts letter perfect in it's weighMy checker told me sew.
  • 26. Auto Correct
  • 27. FYI: Why Things Fight Back (328)
    Do you know all the phone numbers of people you regularly call, or are you stored in your cell?
    When is the last time you saw a cashier compute change without relying on the register?
    Is the schedule for the next two days in your memory or on your PDA calendar?
  • 28. Imaginative Thought
    Relying on technology for engagement may undermine imaginative thought and sustained mental focus
    Cognitive specialists believe a child’s imagination develops when they learn to talk
    Children build imagination by using words to create make believe situations and invisible playmates and by collaborating with other children in play
  • 29. Less Imagination
    Characters on TV and video games are already made and the actions are pre-structured
    Children are required to use a lot less imagination
    Research shows that imaginative play is linked to higher scores on tests of creativity and problem-solving
  • 30. Less Independent Thinking
    Access to infinite information creates lack of any real authority
    Fail to make reasoned judgments about which opinions are really supported and good
  • 31. Traditional Communities
    Traditional Community
    People with similar interests living in a particular area, close enough to interact on a daily basis
    A group of people with a common characteristic or interest living together within a larger society
    A body of persons or nations having a common history or common social, economic, and political interest
    Do you consider a virtual online community the same as a traditional community?
  • 32. Virtual Communities
    Allow us to connect with anyone who is also a part of that specific community
    PROS
    Don’t need to compromise or make accommodations-stay out of topics you aren’t interested in
    Visit the community whenever and where ever you are
    Not responsible to adapt to tough/awkward situations
    Ability to be accepted for who you are
  • 33. Virtual Communities
    CONS
    Don’t learn to adapt to situations—no log-off button in real life confrontations
    Lack of personal identity
    Becomes harder to develop an authentic self and share genuine feelings
    Healthy way to learn who you really are.
    Misleading characters
  • 34.
  • 35. Increase in Productivity?
    Depends, sometimes yes, sometimes no
    IRS spent $50 million on new systems for the agents, 40% decline in productivity in return
    Word processors help us to be more productive with our work by catching mistakes—to a point
    Electronic entertainment doesn’t help everyone, including myself
  • 36.
  • 37. Guidelines for Media
    Guideline #1-Consciously Managing Information Flow
    Between 1970 and 2000
    Our access to information Is almost limitless, but does that necessarily mean we are more knowledgeable?
    “Information is the details…knowledge is being able to put the details together and draw a clear conclusion”—Philosopher David Rothenberg
  • 38. Guidelines for Media
    Guideline #1-Consciously Managing Information Flow
    Between 1970 and 2000
    Our access to information Is almost limitless, but does that necessarily mean we are more knowledgeable?
    “Information is the details…knowledge is being able to put the details together and draw a clear conclusion”—Philosopher David Rothenberg
  • 39. Information Overload
    Irony of tech giant research on coping with information overload and stress
    Interruptions and switching between tasks shortens attention spans and decreases productivity-businesses $650 million annually
    W.O.W.—30 million hours each day-equivalent of $587 million production loss
  • 40.
  • 41. FYI: Who Would You Become? (334)
    Amish determine their electronic needs through their set principles and values, not on the Jones’
    What would life be like without modern technology?
  • 42. Regulating Communication Technologies
    Guideline #2-Regulating Communication Technologies
    Who should control the internet?
    Microsoft issue
    Getting what you want on the Web, and what you don’t want
    Network providers functioning as gatekeepers
    Cookies, spyware, & hackers
