Socials 8-1/8-2: Current Events

Today we had a discussion that took two associated tacks - one was on Twitter and the role of social media in making sense of our contemporary world, and the other was on the recent events around the magazine Charlie Hebdo, in Paris. I was pleased with the level of engagement and participation in today's discussions. We heard from some class members who are usually more quiet.  I hope you are encouraged to get out an gain more access to world and local events on a more regular basis. There is no homework (that was a trick: your homework is to watch the news). 
We talked about Twitter and how the rise of technology
continues to influence the way we interact with information.
We decided a Venn diagram was a better tool to discuss Twitter
than a simple T chart.  There are many good ideas here.
