  7. 7. COMPUTER-MEDIATED COMMUNICATION<br />Positives<br />FIRST INVENTED BY IBM IN 1940<br />THOMAS WATSON THOUGHT THERE WOULD ONLY NEED TO BE 5 COMPUTERS THAT THE ENTIRE WORLD WOULD NEED<br />IN THE 1970’S THOUSANDS OF HOUSEHOULDS HAD COMPUTERS<br />75% OF PEOPLE NOW USE THE INTERNET AND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS HAVE PERSONAL COMPUTERS<br />Negatives<br />Some functions have no paper trail, i.e. email<br />
  8. 8. Electronic Conferencing<br />Teleconferencing: a term that describes the discussion among people who are geographically separated.<br />Different types include:<br />Audio conferencing<br />Computer conferencing<br />Video conferencing<br />
  9. 9. Interconnected Communication Technologies<br />Extension and convergence of technologies already present.<br />These technologies interconnect various devices to each other and to the internet so users don’t have to independently configure each new system. <br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. Controversies about Personal and Social Media<br />How do computer technologies affect thinking?<br />How do online communities affect social relations?<br />Do newer technologies increase productivity?<br />
  12. 12. How Do Computer Technologies Affect Thinking<br />Encourage multitasking<br />Encourage response to visual stimuli<br />Discourage independent, critical thinking<br />
  13. 13. Multitasking<br />Engaging in multiple tasks simultaneously or in rapid sequence in overlapping and interactive ways<br />Computers facilitated multitasking, but is no longer limited to computer usage<br />
  14. 14. Can We Multitask?<br />Ironically, computers do not multitask<br />A computer executes each operation individually in sequence at a very rapid pace<br />Because a computer gives its full attention to a single task at a time, it does the task with great accuracy<br />
  15. 15. Downsides of Multitasking<br />Adults who shift between two tasks take longer to do both tasks and make more mistakes<br />Since you pay attention to several things at once, you don’t go into any one thing in depth<br />
  16. 16. Downsides of Multitasking<br />Multitasking can make us feel rushed, hurried, always needing to check our email, texts, Facebook, Twitter, etc.<br />
  17. 17. FYI: Drvngwhltxtng (326)<br />Talking on a cell phone was no different than talking to a passenger<br />Then safe to drive with hands-free set<br />Now everything is dangerous<br />Phone conversations are the most distracting activity<br />
  18. 18. Encourages Response to Visual Stimuli<br />We rely on screens to read text messages and to communicate online<br />Thus, computers teach us to expect new stimuli continuously<br />We learn to response to dazzling and vibrant graphics<br />
  19. 19.
  20. 20. PowerPoint<br />Utilized by this and several other groups to present information<br />Gives the impression that bullets are equivalent to clear thinking<br />Before we have time to analyze the relationship between bullet and main points<br />
  21. 21. PowerPoint<br />The slide changes, and we now concentrate on the new set of bullets<br />
  22. 22. PowerPoint<br />PowerPoint’s emphasis on quick, visually striking presentation of information doesn’t encourage analytical or integrative thinking about the actual content<br />
  23. 23. Discourage Independent Critical Thinking<br />Make it easy to rely on external authorities<br />Undermine imaginative thought<br />Discourage independent thought<br />
  24. 24. External Authorities<br />Spell check on your PC<br />Many people now do not know proper grammar, syntax, and punctuation<br />
  25. 25. Spell Check<br />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.<br />
  26. 26. Auto Correct<br />
  27. 27. FYI: Why Things Fight Back (328)<br />Do you know all the phone numbers of people you regularly call, or are you stored in your cell?<br />When is the last time you saw a cashier compute change without relying on the register?<br />Is the schedule for the next two days in your memory or on your PDA calendar?<br />
  28. 28. Imaginative Thought<br />Relying on technology for engagement may undermine imaginative thought and sustained mental focus<br />Cognitive specialists believe a child’s imagination develops when they learn to talk<br />Children build imagination by using words to create make believe situations and invisible playmates and by collaborating with other children in play<br />
  29. 29. Less Imagination<br />Characters on TV and video games are already made and the actions are pre-structured<br />Children are required to use a lot less imagination<br />Research shows that imaginative play is linked to higher scores on tests of creativity and problem-solving<br />
  30. 30. Less Independent Thinking<br />Access to infinite information creates lack of any real authority<br />Fail to make reasoned judgments about which opinions are really supported and good<br />
  31. 31. Traditional Communities<br />Traditional Community<br />People with similar interests living in a particular area, close enough to interact on a daily basis<br />A group of people with a common characteristic or interest living together within a larger society<br />A body of persons or nations having a common history or common social, economic, and political interest<br />Do you consider a virtual online community the same as a traditional community? <br />
  32. 32. Virtual Communities<br />Allow us to connect with anyone who is also a part of that specific community<br />PROS<br />Don’t need to compromise or make accommodations-stay out of topics you aren’t interested in<br />Visit the community whenever and where ever you are<br />Not responsible to adapt to tough/awkward situations<br />Ability to be accepted for who you are<br />
  33. 33. Virtual Communities <br />CONS<br />Don’t learn to adapt to situations—no log-off button in real life confrontations<br />Lack of personal identity<br />Becomes harder to develop an authentic self and share genuine feelings<br />Healthy way to learn who you really are.<br />Misleading characters <br />
  34. 34.
  35. 35. Increase in Productivity?<br />Depends, sometimes yes, sometimes no<br />IRS spent $50 million on new systems for the agents, 40% decline in productivity in return<br />Word processors help us to be more productive with our work by catching mistakes—to a point<br />Electronic entertainment doesn’t help everyone, including myself<br />

  38. 38. Guidelines for Media<br />Guideline #1-Consciously Managing Information Flow<br />Between 1970 and 2000<br />Our access to information Is almost limitless, but does that necessarily mean we are more knowledgeable? <br />“Information is the details…knowledge is being able to put the details together and draw a clear conclusion”—Philosopher David Rothenberg<br />
  39. 39. Information Overload<br />Irony of tech giant research on coping with information overload and stress<br />Interruptions and switching between tasks shortens attention spans and decreases productivity-businesses $650 million annually<br />W.O.W.—30 million hours each day-equivalent of $587 million production loss <br />
