My oral presentation is about miscommunication on the Internet.
Thinking about miscommunication and how it happens so often on the Internet. I was able to find a good example through the use of memes. While reading more about Habermas’s theory of communicative action, I thought the use of “communicative acting” is a neat concept. You purposely send a message with intent. There’s no manipulation. Which, this is the way we all should be communicating.
I liked using audio software with this assignment. I’ve used Soundcloud before, but I was having some trouble this time around. So, I decided to use my cell phone’s voice memo app to see how it would work. I liked how I was able to record and instantly import into iMovie, which just made a voice clip. I then uploaded it to my YouTube. While this seems like a lot of steps, it worked out seamlessly. I may use this method in the future.
To complete this assignment, I had to think outside of the box because Soundcloud wasn’t working for me. Finding new ways to use technology is important. Technology is changing all the time.
