“It’s a dialogue, not a monologue, and some people don’t understand that. Social media is more like a telephone than a television.”
— AMY JO MARTIN, AN AUTHOR, SPEAKER, AND ENTREPRENEUR
Media can be a component of active learning strategies such as group discussions or case studies. Media could be a film clip, a song you hear on the radio, podcast of a lecture or newspaper article.
