Final Post: Reflection

At the beginning of the semester, I did not know what to expect from this FYOS course.  I chose it because it was a course that appealed to me the most while conveniently working with my schedule. However, I’m very glad I ended up choosing this FYOS. The workload was manageable and allowed for personal reflection, the in class discussions were insightful, and I really learned about my own media usage. As a result of this course, I learned the most about how dependent I am on media, as observed through my daily media logs, and that this usage exceeds more than just social media, ranging from PowerPoint presentations in class to music on Spotify. I think what will stick with me the most from this course is an increased awareness of my media usage and an overall understanding of the effects media has in my future, especially in my career.
