Summarise how and why media and communication forms have changed over the last century. How have these changes impacted society and the media? An essay by Carmen Álvarez-Mayo (2002) 


"We live at a new frontier… where media, computing and telecommunications converge to create ‘wired worlds’… where words, sounds and images flash around the globe in digital data streams… where access to digital information is central to work, entertainment and education… where prosperity is governed by the ability to question and use knowledge"
