Social Media has forever changed the way we digest, consume, share, and think about photography, and about imagery more generally. How does this proliferation of images on social media change the way society is communicating? This course explores why, how, and to what end will this evolution play out in today’s K-12 classroom. Educators will think deeply about- and design and plan lessons around- how social media has changed the way that artists and society relate to the photographic image.
