First ideas for Social media conference.


The Question: How do you see YOUR use of social media tools supporting concrete social change?

I think no one can change something in global, but each of us can do something local. But there is another problem too. You can’t make somebody to listen to what you say if they aren’t interested in it, even if you try to make them sure that if they listen they will become involved in it. But……
For example I can ask my friends, which can use internet, to listen to me, and I am sure that they will do it. And after listening me, they will understand that using web 2.0 tools will make their life easier, they will be able to find what they want, and what is interesting them. And I will be able to teach them how to express their opinion, and how to find people which have the same interests. And I will do it, and I am sure they will be glad and grateful to me, for “opening their eyes”. And I will be happy if ever one of them pass this knowledge to only one person, and I hope that after some time big part of students of our school will be able to use Web 2.0 technologies and express their opinion by help of blog or some social webs.
The second step will be making trainings by the help of my friends for that part of our school society which isn’t interested at Web at all, and on their real example I will be able to show changes that have happened in their life. And how we all know REAL example is great power, and THIS will be able to make them to think about using Social media for Social change ( expressing their opinion and making in life their ideas)

DOTCOM Phase #3, Module 2 - Exploring REEL BAD ARABS

First of all I want to say that I am glad to see new Module. And I am looking forward to see all of direction and participants from USA in Armenia.

1.The first thing that came into my mind when I thought about word “Arab” was “Iran”. I can’t explain why, but it was so, maybe because Iran is our neighbor, maybe because this is the biggest Arabic country.
At first seconds of watching this film it was feeling that this film will be about something mysterious, because this film is about Arabs, and almost in all what I listen about Arabs was mystery, at this moment worked REPTILIAN part of my brain.
When I was watching this film at first time the first thing that I think about was horror, I saw dying people, and I think that at that time work Limbic part of my brain.
When I watched this film at second time I think about role of Arabs in the world and cinema. And this is work of neo-cortex part of my brain.
2. PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES-Music.
Music which was used in this film make us to think about Arabs, because when the man hear music which is usual for any nation, our brain begin think about this nation, and we begin listen more carefully and understand better.
3. PERSUASIVE TECHNIQUES-1.RHETORICAL QUESTIONS-When in film the man said “if Arabs are so?”
2. Fear/Defensive nationalism- in film the announcer said “at first Arabs were associated with terrorists”
3. Testimonial- in film was used fragment from film with governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger. All of us know him, and that why believe this part of film.
4. SUGGESTIONS-I think “REAL BAD ARABS” is good film, and it can become better if the filmmakers has shown the real life of Arabs today. Show their night clubs, restaurants and their usual life. Yes there are different, but they are people too. We must only try to understand them and to learn about them more. Believe me Arabs have good character traits, which we can adopt.
5. Yes I do. Because in this film man can see the history of changing relation to Arabs during the time, and I think it will be interesting to them to watch this film.

My Top Three REEL ACTION Themes

My Top Three REEL ACTION Themes are:
1. Environment
2. Media
3. Peace/War/Conflict



1. ENVIRONMENT

First of all my own opinion is so: “We are that, what is around us!”
I was born in Erevan in 1993. In that time Erevan and whole world where more clean and more healthy. There wasn’t so many fabrics, cars and other things, which was polluting world atmosphere, there were a lot of kinds animals and plants, which isn’t know. The water was cleaner! Now let’s think, if during 15 years people have changed the world so much, and how we know periods of evolution are becoming shorter and shorter how will be the world when I will be 30 years old! There won’t be clean air, clean water, there won’t be 30% of biosphere! It’ so sad!
BUT!
During hundreds year people destroy the world, but in 20th century was created new science: “nanotechnology”. With the help of it people can save the world and all on it! And I think that now days people understand that we must save the world, even if don't destroy it!
And I hope that during my life thee world will becaome clearer, niver and better, and I will do all for it!


2.MEDIA!

Only 1% of people who live in Yerevan know what does it mean, but 100% of them use it every day!

Let's understand what does it means "MEDIA"

In my opinion MEDIA is tool in the hands of people, which help them be included in the world’s life! All of us use it! We all watch TV, the big part of us read books, newspapers and magazines, and only some of us use Internet! Yes of course all of this (TV, internet, magazines, and books) are part of media! And our task is to tell people around us about that part of media, that they don’t know about, such as blogs =))! And of course every man who count him part of society must tell his opinion if he have any opportunity to do it! =))


3. Peace/War/Conflict

The first and the most important guarantee of life on the world is PEACE. We ( all peoples on the world) must live in peace! And in this way any country of the world will become better, and each man on world will be able to sleep calm.


Such as PEACE is the first guarantee of life on the world WAR is the first danger of it! The wars begins goverments of countries but from it suffer usual people. And different peoples become enemies. And this fact is very-very sad! Becouse why for examplle people who have friends of "enemies nationality" can't tell about it his friends in own country? I don't understand it.

CONFLICT is usual part of our life!There are a lot of conflicts between persons, but there are conflicts between countries too, and they must be solved by the peace negotiations and no by the help of weapons!

THIS IS MY OPINION =)))))))))))))))))))
