Beginning with the earliest technology (writing) we will explore the various social, political, cultural, and economic impacts of new communication technology. The course goals are threefold: To help students build a technical vocabulary to better understand new communication technology To provide a sense of background, history, and origins of new communication technologies, particularly computers To have students engage with technology in a series of hands-on exercises which will familiarize students with new technology Assignments: Students will be expected to attend class and discussion sections and complete all assignments. In addition, there will be two midterm examinations and a final (non-cumulative) exam, each worth 25% of your grade. Exams will be a combination of multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions. There will also be four discussion section assignments, worth a total of 25% of your grade. These are "hands-on" assignments, where you will be expected to apply course concepts. Grades will be computed using a basic scale (97-100 = A+, 94-96 = A, 90-93 = A-, etc.). Unfortunately, there is no credit for effort, except as evidenced in your work. No late assignments will be accepted. Make up exams will be scheduled only in cases of documented physical illness or in case of emergency.
