Wednesday 9-11:30am, 420 Chadbourne Hall
Joline Blais and Jon Ippolito
Spring 2011

This course examines the role new media can play in the transformation of a broken world. Students will explore cutting-edge developments such as the use of Facebook and Twitter in the Arab Spring uprisings, Open Space in #OccupyWallStreet, and YouTube in promoting community gardens. Students will combine these many-to-many tactics with practice in scripting language of HTML5 to build a network that solves a social or ecological problem. Some knowledge of HTML desirable but not necessary. Open to all students inside or outside of New Media.
