The United States has been accused of exporting its culture and values through films and television. Sometimes referred to as “Coca-Colonization,” the mass exportation of American culture is expected to increase as more and more people have access to the Internet. But is digital distribution a one-way street? In this assignment your task is to identify and discuss the importation of cultures to the United States in the context of Information Technology. You may discuss your own experiences, but make sure to also include real-world examples from the news, research articles, and /or credible online sources.
- The long- and short-term impacts of the identified IT-related culture on individuals, organizations, communities, and/or the society as a whole.
- How technologies (for example, Internet, YouTube, Facebook, and so on) aid or discourage such cross-cultural interchanges.
Use the MS Word skills you learned in this module and write a four-page paper (cover page and reference page plus 2 pages of your findings). Make sure you cite specific examples and offer your ideas on and include a list of references on a separate page. Use the American Psychological Association (APA) style (6th edition) for writing your assignment.
