A simple tweet or a facebook post is far removed to the media my parents accessed many years ago. I have been long fascinated by the way media has developed around me and the role I play in the evolution of it. Production of digital media not only excites me, but challenges my very being as I am only a minor part in an ever developing media world. The evolution of media stemming from technologies and innovations which are changed, adapted and evolved everyday brings a whole new level of relevance to the core of the course. The many facets of technological media has changed the way we live, the way we communicate and the way we interact as a society. Not only does it allow me to be creative with my digital designing, but it also allows me …show more content…
I hope to broaden my knowledge and understanding of professional film-making with my upcoming trip to the ECU Film Festival in Paris. Other A-levels I study include Geography and Business alongside an Extended Project Qualification in media. Geography has allowed me to enhance my essay-writing skills as well as gathering and analysing research both individually and in a team. Human Geography effectively links with media communications in varying ways; globalisation and development being the most explicit. Business has allowed me to understand the scope of the business industry which can easily be integrated within the media. Analytical skills are one of the most essential aspects I have taken away from Business and it has allowed me to apply theory-based research onto paper with a lot more fluidity. I have been involved in various extra-curricular activities which I believe were a progressive way of enhancing my transferable skills throughout the years. Peer mentoring has been a big part of my school life and it has allowed me to develop into an understanding and a communicative counsellor. Other activities such as open parent evenings, instrumental, designing and debating sessions were also some of the things that have truly transformed me into

I have chosen the movie Signs to do my worldview analysis on. First, I will discuss the worldviews that the main characters in the movie have. I will then answer the question of if the characters were true to their worldviews. I will also discuss the obstacles that the main characters faced that deterred the character or characters from living out their worldview. Lastly, I will describe mental, emotional, or spiritual reactions I had to the movie as well as explain if I agree or disagree with the worldview present in the movie.
Psychology can be presented by the media in forms such as magazine or newspaper articles, and the most popular today is through commercials watched on TV. Psychology is presented in a form of science today compared to what it was viewed as in the late 1800s and onto the 1900s. It is more of a science nature because viewers have to think about the meaning of the article or commercial to understand the message that is being presented. Then, psychology was viewed as a form or common sense. Psychology was never really looked at as a science but rather as philosophy in the 1980s. The public was often confused with the subject of psychology because it was always
In this modern age, the majority of society has adapted to social media and the newest technology to fit around our lives. Technology provides tools that are imperative to the making and the use of other tools. It is a tool in itself. Technology is changing rapidly; so rapidly, in fact, there can be cultural gaps between generations. The construction of social media has enabled access to innovative phenomenon, broken barriers, changed our perspectives on ideas, and has even opened doors to new opportunities.
A Comparison of Two Media Texts I am going to compare two articles about medical testing on animals. One is a newspaper article written by Polly Toynbee and is called ‘Sorry, but I think dying people are more important than dumb animals,’ this was published in the Guardian. The other is a leaflet with the title ‘It’s a crying shame’ which is design for animal aid.
- Concept of new digital tools shaping society and the way individuals interact is explored. The aspect of the past fundamental experience has changed over generations as “we shape our tools and after a while our tools shape us”. Linking to the digital text as the digital article has altered the way the audience perspective and the way individuals read and experience the
What comes to mind when you hear Popeye the Sailor? Is it a strong man on a boat eating spinach that saves the damsel in distress from the big, bad bully? What about Bugs Bunny, everyone’s favorite carrot eating mammal that runs around causing mischief for all involved? If you have warm and pleasant thoughts for these two characters, then you are not alone. These cartoon characters have been making people around the world laugh since the 1930’s. Parents and children alike have been finding themselves sitting on their couch binge watching episode after episode relishing in the humor. The sad truth is that these characters have not always been used for lighthearted fun and entertainment. In the quest for money and continued success, media production companies have been known to turn these children based images into dark, message heavy vehicles that are anything but the normal easygoing cartoons. Next time you turn on the cartoon channel try picturing your favorite character being racially insensitive or treating others in a way that you might not be able to easily explain to your children. That is just what the parents during World War II were faced with. The question that comes to mind in this situation is whether or not these parents felt the need to bring up racial discrimination to their children or if they thought the cartoons were inappropriate to begin with. The children’s cartoons created by Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, and Paramount Pictures during World
The film “ Digital Nation” is an exploration of diverse people's views on digital media, in today's world. Some of the most important topics were on the virtual world, and the pros and cons of technology within different groups like gamers, students, families, teachers, administrators, children, military and businesses, as well as the experience of general people. In the movie, Prof. Sherry Turkle said, “Technology challenges us to assert our human values. Technology is not good or bad, is powerful, and it is complicated which means first we have to figure out what they are”. Currently, technology has taken over, wherever one, goes one will find it. Over the past years, social media in particular have spread worldwide; from Facebook to Instagram. There is constantly something new, extra advanced and creative. Overall, the technology has evolved the way humans interact with each other. In particular, technology influences by motivating students towards learning, saving time, building literacy and communication skills.
Media literacy is defined as "the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and communicate messages in a variety of forms" (Know TV). In more practical terms, media literacy means questioning the media and interpreting its many messages accordingly. Students are exposed to mass quantities of media on a daily basis. They watch television and movies, read books, newspapers, and magazines, listen to music, and in more recent years explore the Internet. This extreme exposure to media outlets leads to the need for education about the media. Media literacy is one way to help educate students about issues in which they are already actively engaged. Media literacy should be implemented into
Mass media is the methods of communication, including television, radio, magazines, films, internet and newspapers, that have become some of society’s most important agents of socialization. In this paper I will talk about media and its effects on society today, things such as stereotypes the media portrays, the way media illustrates women and what that does to body images of women. I will also be talking about medias effects on teenagers, and sexualization in the media.
The Role of Media in the Society Media has always played a huge role in our society. For a long time media was one of the methods of controlling people and leisure. In ancient times when there was no newspapers and television, people used literature as source of information, some books like "the Iliad", and different stories about great kings, shows those people the information about them. Nowadays media is one of the main part of our lives and our society, because we use word media, to combine all sources of information. Average man is spending 4 hours a day on watching TV and reading newspapers.
The worth of media is a very controversial topic. Media has given us the ability to do things in new and creative ways such as how we learn and accomplish our everyday tasks. However, we do not always know how to interpurate this information. The technology available today is constantly impacting and influencing society in tremendous ways. Many of the impacts that are accocated with media are addressed in negative ways, but can be seen from a positive perspective as well. In the current generation, media and its influences can be found everywhere. These influences widely impact today’s adolescents and maturing teenagers because they are still developing into adults. Medias purpose is not only to inform us, but to allow us to mold ourselves in how we want to be perceived online. Also, it allows us easy access to unbelievable amounts of information. Living in an era known as the “information age” is riveting, but what are we suppose to do with all of this new technology and information?
The 21st century is often referred to as the digital age. Former ways of communicating ideas and communicating with each other are becoming obsolete as cyber culture takes over. For many of us the use of new technologies and social media sites have changed our way of life and has shaped how others view us on online platforms. Many view mass media and digital culture as a brilliant and successful phenomenon as it’s a product of the development of technology however to what extent is it impacting our lives and how we view the world, ourselves, and others?

Have you ever had an original thought? Why do we dress the way we do, watch what we watch or even live the way we do. Through our means of entertainment, it is almost a guide in how one should live their life. With the technology we have in our world we are persuaded to believe what is right and what is wrong. Although we create our own world, our thoughts were imposed upon us since the day we are born. “What if the world is some kind of show. What if we are only talents assembled by the Great Talent Scout Up Above! The Great Show of Life! Starring Everybody! Suppose entertainment is the Purpose of Life,” says Gabler. We wake up in the morning where most of us have a daily routine we go through. Why do we put on
