Newberry Teachers' Consortium

Few inventions have influenced contemporary American society as much as television, and as a constant presence in our lives, television both reflects and shapes societal shifts. This seminar will address changes in television such as the fragmentation of television audiences, the rise of interactivity like tweeting reality TV, reality TV itself, the audience as stars on Youtube and vines, and as mediators on blogs, social media, and through piracy. Participants will investigate the transition from watching television on a television screen to watching on other devices anywhere and anytime. Finally the seminar will examine how these changes in television impact the family, student learning in schools, and American society more broadly.
