Taking Media Life has given me an entirely new perspective of media. So many people make claims that media has been a detriment to social interaction. However, this course has helped me realize it is neither advantageous or disadvantageous, it is simply a new way of going about our everyday lives. Media, as technology evolves, it does not necessarily improve, it simply changes laterally.
Through this class I have learned to view media as an integral aspect of life. Media has grown to make it practically impossible to “escape” media. We are living in a world where we cannot separate the “real” world with the media world. One thing I will take from this class is I will be able to acknowledge the massive role media has in the world today.
