Inter-generational technology applications

As technological appliances evolve into new forms through human generations, people's consumption habits evolve with these new forms.

The comic shows "this totally retro "I-POD" as its predecessor, the cassette tape or Sony Walkman. Electronic devices are given names by marketers to reflect the latest technological innovation such as 'iPad'. Net or 'cyber' language is created by new media communication forms. For example: I had to learn what a "widget" or an electronic "gadget" was by creating this blog!

In this media blog, Ms Koppen examines issues that exist when youth cultures engage with mobile media. The posts contribute contemporary thought, academic literature and musings about transformations of youth culture and innovative pedagogies for educators.
