Welcome to Journalism 101: Intro to Mass Media and Society. You are entering your first stage as journalists and marketing communicators, whether it is your declared major or not.
This blog is part of the class and on its pages is where all the discussions are going to take place. So, look for this blog on a daily basis and enter your discussions in the comment section. Keep in mind that any comments posted after midnight will not count. Also note that the time on the blog is GMT time, which is 6 hours ahead of us. So anything posted after 6:00 a.m. GMT will not count.
Today your first discussion (keep in mind, each discussion is worth 5 points) is about the changing role of the media and their platforms in an age described as “isolated connectivity” by your professor. Is this a good thing or a bad thing for the future of journalism. Do you agree that we live in an age of “isolated connectivity” or we are better off today than we were years ago? Why and why not. Be specific with your comments and refer to the course syllabus to see how your comments are going to be graded.
All the best and good luck as you enter the Experience Makers era of your college life!
