This course helped in showing how important of a role and how much our media really does factor into our lives,which is neither a good thing or a bad thing. This day in time, media is something that we need to learn to co-habitate with because it is not going to go away. New and interesting and often very confusing and foreign topics were discussed which is a good thing because it made us really think about media and the effect that it has on our lives. Media is everywhere and it is only going to show up more and more. Having grown up with media my whole life, the course made known to me how difficult it is for others before my time to learn how to use these new technologies and how to apply them into their lives today. Also it questions us about our reality and what we know to be ‘real’. It’s up to us and our own interpretation to decide between ‘reality’ and a ‘virtual reality’.
