Key Concepts in New Information Technologies

In the first week of the course we jumped right in with hands-on work. By now (as part of the first mini-project) each student should have created a personal WordPress weblog to use for the course and should have posted one entry of her or his own. (Be sure you have sent me the email with the required information.) In addition, you should know the basics of making a link and of posting a photo, which we covered in class last week.

Today in class we will discuss some important terms for the course as we give a preliminary answer to the question, “What are New Information Technologies?” We will cover the following key concepts:

  • Technologies
  • Information
  • Digital
  • Networked
  • Interactive

Be sure to take notes during the discussion. These are ideas that will be important throughout the term.
