Literate Acts in Social Media: Personal, Professional, and Pedagogical Uses of Social Media Today

In this talk, Dr. Stephanie Vie discusses one particularly revolutionary technology that has impacted our ways of communicating with each other. It’s changing how we perform mundane tasks as well as world-changing events. It’s affecting our understandings of ethical behavior, interactions with friends and family, the ways we conduct research. In short, social media is changing everything, and it’s difficult to not feel its impact on our lives. Audience members will hear how social media has shaped the various options available to individuals to use as they communicate with others personally, professionally, and pedagogically — and what the implications of those options might be.
