Digital Communications


Never have we been able to communicate so easily. Social media, like Facebook and texting, have changed the way we communicate forever.  I love my cell phone!!

Technology itself is not good or bad, it is the way we use it.  In this unit we will examine the ways we use digital devices for communication and discuss possible some ways that it can be hurtful.
