You will complete one Forum for each Lesson.  Each Forum will be worth 30 points.  You will receive 20 points for your original forum post and 5 points for your two peer posts.  For the original post, I expect two good paragraphs, a good paragraph being 8-12 sentences with unity, coherence, and authentic reflection.  Your two peer posts should be one good paragraph each.  

Assignment Directions

In this forum, tell us about how media, technology, and the corporate world influence your life.  What types of media/technology are in your life every day, which do you rely on, spend the most time with, wish you could do without, etc.? How does it feel to be part of a consumer world?  Review your own social media accounts.  What do they tell the world about your values, happiness, and beliefs?  Then, evaluate the positive and negative aspects of such influence in your life.
