    • Personal and Social Media
    • 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
    • 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
    • CHANGES OVER TIME WITH COMMUNICATION
      WRITTEN COMMUNICATION
      TELEPHONIC COMMUNICATION
      COMPUTER-MEDIATED COMMUNICATION
      ELECTRONIC CONFERENCING
      INTERCONNECTED COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • Electronic Conferencing
      Teleconferencing: a term that describes the discussion among people who are geographically separated.
      Different types include:
      Audio conferencing
      Computer conferencing
      Video conferencing
    • 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.
    • Controversies about Personal and Social Media
      How do computer technologies affect thinking?
      How do online communities affect social relations?
      Do newer technologies increase productivity?
    • How Do Computer Technologies Affect Thinking
      Encourage multitasking
      Encourage response to visual stimuli
      Discourage independent, critical thinking
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • Downsides of Multitasking
      Multitasking can make us feel rushed, hurried, always needing to check our email, texts, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • PowerPoint
      The slide changes, and we now concentrate on the new set of bullets
    • PowerPoint
      PowerPoint’s emphasis on quick, visually striking presentation of information doesn’t encourage analytical or integrative thinking about the actual content
    • Discourage Independent Critical Thinking
      Make it easy to rely on external authorities
      Undermine imaginative thought
      Discourage independent thought
    • External Authorities
      Spell check on your PC
      Many people now do not know proper grammar, syntax, and punctuation
    • 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.
    • Auto Correct
    • 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?
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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?
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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

      “Information is the details…knowledge is being able to put the details together and draw a clear conclusion”—Philosopher David Rothenberg
    • 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
    • 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?
    • 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
    • FYI: Sexting (335)
      “Once the message is sent, it exists and may resurface at any time such as when a potential employer does an online search of an interviewee…”
      Felony charges
    • FYI: Cyberhate (336)
      Online communities specializing in hate speech encouraging negative feelings towards particular groups or cultures
