After studying the assigned reading 21st Century Communication: A Reference Handbook, Chapter 54: “Traditional and New Media,” and the assigned reading “The Impact of New Media on Intercultural Communication in Global Context,” complete the following assignment by synthesizing the readings. Considering the statement “technologies are simply tools” write a short essay that incorporates answers to the following prompts:
A) Explain how that statement relates to the keywords describing new media: “manipulate, converge, and instant.”
B) How does the concept of intercultural impact of new media increase the complexity of the statement? You should especially consider the new experiences, for human beings that the convergences of new media and globalization bring about.
Support your responses with research from the Learning Resources. Use APA in-text citations where necessary and cite any outside sources. Create an APA reference list at the end of the document (make sure Turnitin Score is 20% or below for all assignments; otherwise, revisions will have to be made before grading).
The response should be in 12pt type, at least 1-1.5 pages in length, double-spaced. I suggest that you make sure that you have information on the second page to be safe and avoid the loss of points.
