A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an invitation to hypnosis.
DigiURI Media Club: "#Being13: The Secret World of Teens" documentary
Join us August 5 at 9am ET to discuss "#Being13: Inside the Secret World of Teens," a forty-five minute documentary by CNN that seeks to shed light on how young people are using social media and what we older folks should know about it. What may be more interesting than the documentary itself are the comments posted by teens below the video. We'll explore both as we talk about how quickly a documentary like this becomes outdated given its nature and more!
NEW THIS MONTH! Join the conversation on Twitter:
1. Live Twitter chat August 5 @9am ET hosted by @DevinaSarwatay #digiuri #mediaclub
