Feeling wonderful with only one assessment left in my double degree! I just completed an assessment for a unit called Digital Media Literacy at the University of Canberra. This unit looked into digital media technologies and how they fit into and impact the communication industry.
My last assessment for this unit was to create a Storify based on a particular topic and comment on the discourse surrounding the topic. For my topic I chose the #wrongminewrongplace hashtag and gathered discourse off sites such as Twitter, Facebook and media outlets such as The Namoi Valley Independent and ABC Rural. The main aspect I found interesting surrounding the discourse was that majority of participants on social media surrounding the topic were against the Shenhua mine being approved on the Liverpool Plains, NSW. It is also interesting to consider the large impact social media has had on this topic in letting individuals speak there opinions via the internet. As the conversation continues the hashtag is increasingly being used. See for your self on Twitter!
