an understanding of communication
in a digitally connected space
The research question presented within this capstone project is as follows, are the changes in digital culture diminishing language as we know it, and how does this shift in the paradigm affect literacy?
Through research, we'll get a better understanding of each of the chosen words. We'll begin to develop a greater understanding of the way that each word is interconnected. The meanings of each of these keywords will demonstrate the connection they share, both to each other and the changing format of communication in a digitally immersed society.
Gaining an understanding of these connections, and what those connections may entail for the future, is just as equally important as understanding the connections themselves. Digital culture is something that nearly every person participates in, whether they are aware of it or not.
Technology is changing and shaping communication, language, and, therefore, literacy.What we do with this new technology, how we share it, and how we move forward will, in the end, shape the fate of both language and literacy.
