Social Movements and Technology
In contemporary society (2000-present), social movements or uprisings do not need to occur in person. Many have been promoted and fought on the Web. Technology can provide a voice for those who would otherwise not able to express themselves.
How important is technology in countries that have limited freedom of assembly? Have you ever been in a social movement that was based on an electronic network? If so, describe the importance of technology to the movement’s goals. Based on your answers to the previous questions, explain how to be a force for positive change in the world?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
