Leading scholars in the field of emerging new media convergence, such as Henry Jenkins of the USC Annenberg School for Communication
and Journalism and Dr. Lisa Gitelman of NYU, posit that media convergence is more than a technological shift from traditional media to new media technologies.
The new media technologies are a process opposed to an end result.
Two dimensions are occurring in this process. The first dimension is the production of communication information and the secondary dimension includes the social and cultural norms and practices that occur with the technology.
Discuss a technological shift in society occurring in either of these new media dimensions.
Be sure to identify the characteristics of how the digital and/or traditional media are converging
. Are there certain protocols or practices that need to be recognized when communicating on the internet?
Are there outcomes and changes (social, political, cultural, or environmental) emerging from new media convergences?
What relationships have emerged or altered in society?
Your post needs to include the specific media technologies and their characteristics. This discussion topic will help you to develop your ideas for the Final Project Part I paper on emerging technology.
