Why should writing be taught as a skill when so many correcting services (auto-correct, auto-capitalization, Grammarly, etc.) can be used?
The ability to write well is, seemingly, becoming a lost art. In this age of technology, many services advertise the ability to do something for you so that you do not have to. A great deal of these services offer to fix poor writing. It is important that people continue to learn and practice good writing in order to intelligently and effectively communicate information. Writing is one of the most important methods of information exchange, and should regarded as such. The more that outside services are relied upon, the less capable we become. Many tasks can and should be completed with more efficiency using an automatic service, but writing is not one of them; each person should strive for the ability to write well.
Subject: Digital Media
How does digital media relate to modern society?
Digital media has increasingly become the primary method of information sharing. The technological developments of the late 20th century leading into the 21st century have created an environment in which most information can be shared more effectively by digital means (e.g. email campaigns) than physical means (e.g. newspapers). Because of this, becoming literate in the study of digital media can be a useful skill in navigating this digital society. Digital media is a vast realm, dealing with the creative presentation of information as well as the study of analytics that reveal the reception of that information. It is clear that digital media has quickly become an indispensible aspect of the progression of modern society.
Why is the study of communication useful?
The study of communication extends beyond a simple two-way conversation; it relates to the many ways in which information is communicated and perceived. Instances of communication can be found in nearly every aspect of everyday life: conversation, hand gestures, facial expressions, advertisements, and countless other things. The study of communications allows us to understand what is being said and why, and enables us to operate more effectively within the world with this knowledge. The world becomes a much more interesting place once you are able to perceive underlying messages.
