3 Specific Media Artifacts

3 Specific Media Artifacts Description –Since the beginning, we’ve explored the cognitive and developmental perspectives of media. We have learned that people move through different developmental periods as their thinking and processing change. By understanding cognitive development, logical thinking, and technology we have seen why so much time, effort and funding goes into research teams to create media that is both interesting and educationally exciting. Keep this in mind as you craft your final projects. –do not skip any questions. Provide readings: -Harris, Richard. (2014). A Cognitive Psychology of Mass Communication. 6th Edition. Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc.: New Jersey. Chapters 1-9, 11-12 (DO NOT USE CHAPTER 10) -readings in the compressed file Questions!!! Instruction with Media Artifacts: During this course, we have examined several media: e.g., television, film, video, video games, virtual reality, etc… REQUIRED CONTENT TO ANSWER: 1) Take some topic you would like to communicate and describe how you would use a combination of these media with at least 3 SPECIFIC ARTIFACTS ** (DO NOT CREATE YOUR OWN) to communicate this message to an audience (for instance to teach a second language to children you could use: Dora the Explorer, 123teachme.com’s Spanish Lessons, Rosetta Stone’s language projects). The topic or message can be either something you would like the audience to learn (e.g., a science theory) and/or something you would like to persuade them about (e.g., to lead healthy lives), or both. ***You may use the media artifact(Instagram) from the first paper as one of the three required media. (this paper is in the additional file, you can read as example, but do not copy paste in this paper. You can definitely choose not use Instagram if it does not fit your plan) 2) Describe your intended audience. Whom are you trying to reach? What do they require for effective learning? 3) Ground your discussion by relating it explicitly to the research we have covered in the course. 4) Discuss the advantages, disadvantages, and biases of each media artifact.
