UY. New Media- like what?
So, I unfortunately cannot blog about the new media I have learned- since it is still a process (all great things take time). But I can tell you about the excellent plan I have devised.
I’m creating a website, possibly from scratch but possibly from google- really whatever my techdesk appointment at 6 pm today tells me is best. But the point of the website has transitioned from being a platform of information for people to access, but instead a platform for communication.
The website is going to have information, and naturally hyperlinks for people to learn even more- but the interactive component is going to be special. I have several teachers at the University that have taught me about gender differences in sports, society, economics etc and they are all excited to help give their viewpoint on how the university is teaching these differences and hearing my perspective about the impact this is having. After sharing these professor’s thoughts on essentially what was my paper topic, I am going to share the website with all of my friends to post their own thoughts on this potential imbalance and it’s implications.
I’m sure creating the website won’t be too bad, especially with some help from google experts but the perspective aspect will definitely take me a while. Especially because between explaining the project and hearing his input, I just met with my professor for an hour. But this is definitely going to be something worthwhile to create because it could really open doors to communication between students!!
