I found an online archive called ‘Futurism’ (http://futurism.com/networksociety/) which has a section on Network Society. ‘Futurism’ has 1,615,047 likes on Facebook and a daily email service. The Network Society section includes many articles that have videos and pictures attached to them to gain a better understanding on the subject.
On top of that there is a discussions section to the archive where a member can write a statement or question and other members can discuss ideas, which is really helpful for students to get involved and delve deeper within the topic.
Being someone who learns better from actively learning I find that the videos and discussions will really help students in this module because if they didn’t understand something that was mentioned in the lecture or weekly readings then they can come to ‘Futurism’ and find out more by watching videos and getting involved in discussions.
For example there is an article called ‘Happy Birthday, Websites. The World’s First Website Turns 25 Years-Old’ (as pictured the video content within the article) which we could of linked to the modules first Lecture ‘The Internet And Now’. The article will add to the students learning as it is something extra that they can refer to.
Throughout this module I will defiantly carry on looking at the content within this archive as I feel this will defiantly help students studying ‘Network Society and The Media’ and add to their learning.
