Part 1

Topic: Finding Truth in Theory

In weeks/modules 3 and 4 you have read a significant amount of information on both media and human theory in Ruddock (2017) and Littlejohn, Foss, and Oetzel (2017). As you are a Strategic Communication scholar it is important for you to consider how these theories begin to help us emerge ideas for how theory can align with real-life. As Strategic Communication scholars we need to understand how media creates perceptions that affect how societies perceive social issues. Also, we need to consider that when media and people interact the output is a phenomenon that automatically connects people to society, history, and culture. Therefore the key methodological insights result from the success of small-scale studies that take these elements into account.

In your post, discuss media ritual research, methodological best practices, and how researchers can ‘know’ that there is truth in Strategic Communication studies in light of the theories compiled by Ruddock (2017) and Littlejohn, Foss, and Oetzel (2017) using the directions from the “Discussion Board Forum Instructions” section of this course.

Part 2

Topic: Introducing Strategic Communication Theory

In weeks/modules 1 and 2 you have read a significant amount of information on both media and human theory in Ruddock (2017) and Littlejojn, Foss, and Oetzel (2017). As you are a Strategic Communication scholar it is important for you to consider how these theories collide. Media scholars and media industries agree that media content plays a significant role in developing social values. Also, historically, there have been many different ways of conceiving and examining media power; but most scholars agree that the most important question facing us is how the general presence of media in the middle of public life exercises a long-term influence over fundamental values about how societies are, and how they should be managed.

In your post, discuss this important question, in light of the theories compiled by Ruddock (2017) and Littlejohn, Foss, and Oetzel (2017) using the directions from the “Discussion Board Forum Instructions” section of this course.

The question often arises, what is the limit to how far we take the use of information, technology, and media, at what point do we cross the morality line or prevent ourselves from being robotized in this era of information overload.

Call them necessary evils, considering a scenario such that in today’s society one can manipulate the turn of events in an election just by broadcasting false information by sounding convincing people enough, simultaneously it is a great means to reach the masses. Tools power enough to shape one’s entire perspective and some cases their entire world.

Per Ruddock’s theories, information is to be verified and approved worthy of consumption before broadcast but I’m wondering whether the sources used in the verification process can yet be trusted.

There is also a scenario, where the backgrounds of people determine how they process information, for instance, there was a story that went viral on social media, and 3 groups of people took different stands with respect to the story, a fourth party reading comments from 3 different groups of opinions is left confused and probably forms their own fourth opinion.

I believe the effects of technology, information, and media should be carefully researched before being disseminated.

For part 2, you can develop this further, but if it makes it complicated then easier don’t bother
