This forum conversation will focus on the classroom discussion on the, ‘Arab Spring’. I have shared a link with you to the google drive where you will find 2 videos and an article to help you develop your comments.
One of the videos, titled, ‘ Images of a Revolution’ specifically discusses the role of images that became powerful political tools in the context of the Uprisings in the Arab world and the creative use of social networking, mobile phones and the internet. The second video is a scholarly perspective of the use of social media in the Arab Spring.
Based on the classroom conversation, the google drive resources you are to make observations about your own view points of this phenomenon, discussing the impact of the internet on these political upheavals in the Arab world.
The forum will be open to comments from 22 – 29 March . The forum contribution should be between 4 – 5 comments.
