In Week 2, we learned about various theories, models, and effects that people extend or apply when studying the social implications of communication technologies. We also learned about emerging technologies. This reflection assignment will ask you to think about both of these topics in two different parts. You must complete each part to earn full credit. If you have questions about this assignment, please ask!General instructions: You need to write in complete sentences for this assignment (with the exception of references of course). Please submit this assignment as a word document or pdf using APA style on Carmen. Formatting your paper in APA style means that you should include the following: a title page, running heads, page numbers, double-spaced texts, indentation, one-inch margins (default setting), and a reference list on a separate page if any. You do NOT need to include an abstract, introduction, or conclusion for all papers in this course.The body of your paper should NOT go over 3 pages (excluding the reference page).Part 1Theories and models explain real-life phenomena. For this part of the assignment, you will apply a theory, model, or effect that we learned about to your own experiences or observations. You may choose a theory, model, or effect we discussed in Week 3, or you may choose a different one from your readings. Describe how each part of this theory, model, or effect applies to a situation you have personally observed or experienced. For example, you might describe how the hyperpersonal model applies to your friend meeting someone on Tinder and developing a relationship. Your experience may be perfectly described by the theory, model, or effect. But, it is okay if your experiences or observations do not fit perfectly with the theory, model, or effect. In this case, you can point out parts of the theory or model that could be improved based on what you experienced or observed. You may have to look up additional information about your theory, model, or effect. If you do, please cite your sources.NOTES: For this part, please write about Social Information Processing Theory (SIP) (Walther, 1992)Part 2Later in this course, you will need to know how to find academic sources of information about communication technology. For this part of the assignment, you will practice finding these sources. Specifically, you need to find one peer-reviewed journal article about a communication technology of your choice (e.g., video games, cell phones, virtual reality, social media). In your submission, you need to 1) provide an APA style citation for the article (either the 6th or 7th edition of APA is fine), 2) briefly summarize the article, and 3) explain what this article can teach us about the communication technology you chose. Please keep your responses to this part brief, ideally no more than two paragraphs.NOTES: For this part, please write about Artificial Intelligence. I have found you a journal article and it is uploaded in the file. Use this one instead of the others.
