Media in the online age revision task

  1. 1. Media in the Online Age Revision Task
  2. 2. Task Create a presentation that works through the following questions for two media areas (e.g. news, film, webseries, etc.): • How have online media developed? • What has been the impact of the Internet on media production? • How is consumer behaviour and audience response transformed by online media, in relation to the past? • To what extent has convergence transformed the media?
  3. 3. • Work through the four questions ensuring you cover both media areas in detail. • Give detailed examples to support your points. • Ensure you make links to theory throughout. • Include images and other media to illustrate your points.
  4. 4. Just in case you wondered why this is a useful revision task, see the following info from the exam board about the Media in the Online Age section of the exam…
  5. 5. OCR Specification: Section B: Contemporary Media Issues - Media in the Online Age Candidates must prepare and use specific case studies, texts, debates and research of the topic to demonstrate understanding of the contemporary issue. This understanding must combine knowledge of at least two media and a range of texts, industries, audiences and debates. The topic is accompanied by four prompt questions, and candidates must be prepared to answer an exam question that relates to one or more of these four prompts: • How have online media developed? • What has been the impact of the Internet on media production? • How is consumer behaviour and audience response transformed by online media, in relation to the past? • To what extent has convergence transformed the media?
  6. 6. OCR Specification continued: There should be emphasis on the historical, the contemporary and the future in relation to the chosen topic, with most attention on the present: • Historical – dependent on the requirements of the topic, candidates must summarise the development of the media forms in question in theoretical contexts. • Contemporary – current issues within the topic area. • Future – candidates must demonstrate personal engagement with debates about the future of the media forms / issues that the topic relates to. Candidates might explore combinations of any two media, considering how each (or the two in converged forms) can be analysed from the above prompts. Examples might be music downloading and distribution, the film industry and the internet, online television, online gaming, online news provision, various forms of online media production by the public or a range of other online media forms.
