This report should be easy and perhaps even fun. Your job is to interview an older person (a relative, a parent, guardian, aunt or uncle, or acquaintance). A grandparent or great grandparent is even better. Ask them about their experiences with new communication technology (e.g., television, cable TV, the Internet, texting). For example, do your parents remember their first computer, or the first time they went on the Internet? Do your grandparents remember their first television set? Ask them to describe the experience. How did it affect their lives? Write up a 200 400 word report (not a verbatim transcript) of your interview. Include your reaction to their experiences. What surprised you? What did you find most interesting? Do you see any similarities with your media experiences?
Type AND SAVE your report in a Word file.
