Communications ...current Curricula and social media
I continue to see blog posts, articles, speeches, nay-sayers, etc. expounding on the evils and detriment of life - regarding social media and specifically Facebook.
Can we also accept that this 'new' communication medium is here to stay and has increased our sphere of influence, our life experience...deepened relationships and opened new doors?
..there is tremendous value in that.
If you want to see where we are headed, pay attention to what is being taught to our children...and their children.
Go ahead...Google "College curriculum communications"
See what comes up.

Curriculum Definition: "The subjects comprising a course of study in a school or college"
Communication (from Latin commūnicāre, meaning "to share" ) is the activity of conveying information through the exchange of ideas, feelings, intentions, attitudes, expectations, perceptions or commands, as by speech, non-verbal gestures, writings, behavior and possibly by other means such as electromagnetic, chemical or physical phenomena and smell. It is the meaningful exchange of information between two or more participants (machines, organisms or their parts). (Wikipedia)
