Questions relating to digital work, algorithms, Big Tech and transparency will be examined in the light of examples drawn from everyday life, art and journalism. A further focus is on the value of images, our role as users and our attention, which is key to the profit harvested from and with social platforms. Facilitated by playful approaches and active class involvement, students are afforded a critical look behind the scenes of social media.
