research paper

This 5-6 page paper requires you to critically analyze some aspect of how we communicate using social media and/or personal digital devices.  You will be exploring how digital technology is shaping how we view and use communication using social media and/or personal devices. The overall purpose is not to determine if the use of these devices are “good” or “bad” for our culture or us, but rather that technology is never passive—it alters both the individual user and the society that supports it.

This assignment will also focus on research methods and documentation, accurate assessment and response to the rhetorical situation.
