This unit explores digital and social media for professional, government and community practices. It begins with historical perspectives on digital technology and works towards understanding key principles associated with media syndication, linked data and location-based media. The unit draws on knowledge of cyborgs and post-human theory to situate digital media in cultural contexts. Themes in the unit include post-humanism, tracking, transmateriality, singularity, performative acts, social media analytics and interactive screens. The unit also introduces digital media futures and global perspectives, for example unmanned aerial vehicles used by media producers, and other shifts in digital and social media practices.
