Critical Thinking About Digital Media 6 1/2" x 9 1/8" • 80 pp. • Full-Color Photographs

In recent years, our consumption of media has changed in ways we could never have anticipated. Just as CNN’s 24-hour news cycle showed us that news didn’t have to sleep, independent bloggers and the popularity of social media proved that media also didn’t have to be newspaper- or television-bound. The internet allows us all to take part in a public dialogue—for better or worse. In this thoughtful and entertaining series, students will explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of the new media wave: from the fake news that tipped the 2016 US election to fun memes that brighten our days; from weaponized social media hashtags like #HasJustineLandedYet to the blessings and curses of living in a culture where any post, tweet, video, or message can go viral in the blink of an eye.
