"Now you see me...Now you don't"
The importance of understanding identity both in-person and online.
Students will demonstrate both influences and projections of their identity in social media and in-person via visual, written, video, or performance. Students must demonstrate their understanding of several key concepts through this final project by incorporating three different types of content (text, image, and video). Student’s should also highlight some of the major differences in perception, communication and expression between their online and in-person expressions.
