Jerz: Writing for the Internet (EL 236)


11 September 2006

Alternative Views on Digital Literacy

When does nostalgia for the good old days become fear of the new? What would a TV news show stand to gain from airing a segment that stokes parents' fears about the internet? What would a new media journalism specialist have to gain from asking you to be critical of TV news coverage? (Please don't simply post a brief answer to each prompt; use these prompts to guide your thinking, as you weave the assigned readings together.)

Note: On Corey's blog, there's been some interesting discussion of free speech. Has anyone else participated in a good online discussion that they'd like to publicize here?
