You are asked to keep a diary of your media consumption for a single 24 hour period (ie one day) once during the first two weeks of this unit. At the end of the day, please do a summary of how much time you ve spent engaging with different media platforms. You will then share your diary and summary with the rest of the students in this unit no later than the end of Sunday in week 2. You should then post your diary and summary to your own web presence (which you ll have if you ve done Web 101 or Web 206) or a blog you ve set up. (If you feel that there is something deeply personal in your diary and you can t share it online, then you can post the whole thing to the appropriate discussion board rather than online.) You should then share a link to your diary entry by posting it to the relevant discussion forum on Blackboard.
You are being asked to complete part one early in the unit for two reasons: (a) to help you think about your own media consumption habits in relation to the media changes we are exploring in this unit; and (b) the collective diaries of all students in this unit form a mosaic, illustrating an important sample of contemporary media use and consumption which will help you think about how others consume media. You are strongly encouraged to read and comment on each others diaries.
Part 1 is done here:
Please do Part 2.
Part 2: Tomorrow s Diary & Reflections
For part two, you a required to write a second diary entry, covering a single 24 hour period (ie one day) set five years into the future relative to your original media diary entry. So, for example, if your original media diary was recorded on 9 December 2011, then your second diary entry will be written for 9 December 2016. As with the first entry, you should also include a summary of your time consuming each media type at the end. Utilising everything you have learnt in this unit about the way media are changing, your future media diary should simply describe what media you think you will be engaging with in five years time. This is not just a guess, but an informed estimate on the basis of what you learnt in module one, about where existing industries are heading, and in module two, about emerging web-based media forms.
Along with the second diary entry, you should also write a reflective statement of 1000 words, explaining (a) why you think your media consumption will take this form in five years and (b) how typical your future media consumption will be compared to other people in five years time. The reflective statement is an opportunity to contextualise your diary entries in relation to the unit and should make reference to unit readings (and potentially other sources, too). You must clearly indicate all references and sources for the material informing your statement. Any material you refer to from written sources, online, or anywhere else must be clearly indicated; all of your references should follow the APA style of citation.
