In this podcast episode, I explain what residential schools are, why they were created, who they affected and when they were created. I explained the story of a survivor who attended one of these residential schools. His name is Walter West. I explained his life before attending, while attending and a little bit after attending the residential school. I also explain where he came from, The Takla Nation. I explain where The Takla Nation is located and I describe what they are.
Here is my podcast outline w/works cited at the bottom of the document;
The company that this commercial is representing is Extra. This company is selling gum. The target audience for this commercial could possibly be parents. This is because they are using their product, gum, as a way to create these unbreakable bonds with their child. Throughout this commercial, the parent gives his daughter a lot of gum as she grows up. Every time that he gives her a piece of gum, he creates an origami crane out of the wrapper. He then gives this piece of origami to his daughter. The daughter collects these pieces of origami as a way to always be reminded of him. This is representing the impact that the gum has on this father-daughter bond.
Timeline – Communication
This interactive timeline shows how the invention of the most recent phone came about. This timeline goes form the earliest invention to the latest invention as a continuity. The earliest invention, the telegraph, was the first invention that allowed long-distance communication. The telegraph helped create the telephone as the telephone uses the same concept but is easier to communicate with as the telegraph uses symbolic codes whereas the telephone allows two people to talk directly to one another. The telephone then helped the invention of the radio. The radio had the same concept as the telephone but was more mobile. The radio then helped with the invention of the mobile phone. Not only did the radio help with the invention of the mobile phone, but the telephone helped as well. The mobile phone used the same concept of the telephone and radio but was easier to carry around. The invention of the first mobile phone inspired the creation of all modern-day mobile phones as they all have the same concept but over time, they got more features and uses. One thing that connects all phones and technology is the world wide web. The world wide web is used with all technology today. The world wide web allows people to communicate with all their devices. This timeline will go into more detail about these inventions and will even name more.

New media is the modern form of two-way communication. It is a way of communicating through a vast number of social media platforms, websites and mobile phone apps. It is on demand and interactive. Most consumers use this modern form of media as a pass time. In recent years “the average american spent more than 12 hours a day with various media” (Donovan 2018). One may use it on the way to work, at work and after work. In other words, one may consume new media for hours on end with very little breaks. Therefore, it can lead to depression, substandard eyesight and many more things. With all these negative outcomes, one may think, there has to be healthier ways to consume media, which there are. Some examples of healthier ways to consume media are, reading the newspaper, having a face-to-face conversation and reading books.

There are many ways of consuming this “new Media”. You can do it through your mobile phone where you can then imessage someone or send them a direct message on many different social media platforms, such as instagram. People tend to use their phones and computers all day every day as it’s a way to pass the time quickly. They use them on the way to school or work and they use them after as a fun pass time. Most of the time people can spend too much time on their phone or playing video games and can then ruin their eyesight, make them become more depressed and many other negative things. Even though there are all these negative things, there are some healthier ways to consume media. Such as, reading the newspaper or a book or having a normal face-to-face conversation with someone instead of direct messaging them on your phone.
