I am looking for specific behaviors that define terms from your text. For example, I can say:”In the film Officer Ryan pulled over Cameron and Christine. As he was interrogating the couple he was demonstrating mindless listening as he ignored any responses the two provided. Officer Ryan then violated Christine physically by abusing his power and positions as a police officer. This abuse of power reinforced a negative stereotype that police are racist. The discriminatory behavior also reinforced her perception that she would receive fair treatment from a law enforcement officer. At the same time, Officer Hanson was sympathetic to her position, he demonstrated sympathy by encouraging his partner to stand down. Ultimately, Officer Hanson was unable to intervene in the situation as he was helpless in this power dynamic. Officer Ryan had seniority and rank over Officer Hanson and out of fear of retaliation, Hanson was not able to stop the abusive behavior.Technical requirementsArial, 12 pt fontFULL APA (student edition)APA style (see APA Information)1″ marginsTitle pageReference pageShould include film and textDouble spaced 4 1/2 pages maxDirect connection with interpersonal concepts and specific scenes/actions from filmText terms should be in boldMinimum of 8 terms (C grade)Average terms for A papers is 15 termsGrading2-2 1/2 pages = 70% maxGrammar/spelling OKMinimal or no adaptation of concepts/terms from book2 1/2 – 3 pages = 71-89%Grammar/spelling OK to goodSome adaptation of concepts/terms from book4 pages = 90%Grammar/spelling good to excellentSeveral adaptations of concepts/terms from bookOnly the first submission is accepted without penalty, any additional submissions will receive a 20% deduction.

Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Any sources should be cited using a discipline-appropriate citation method.
The final project is no longer a group project. Instead, it is now an individual-based project. The current final project has only one component: A 45-page paper (excluding the title page and references).Your goal is to 1) use technology creatively to 2) do something prosocial or good for society and 3) to convince investors that your technology is a good idea. If you are struggling to think how your idea is beneficial to society as a whole (not individuals, companies, etc.), then it is not appropriate for this assignment.More specifically, you will come up with a new use of communication technology to benefit society. This project should NOT just be a report on how existing technology is used to benefit people. You must creatively apply existing technology in a new way or propose a new technology based on feasible advancements. If you have questions about whether or not your idea is appropriate for this assignment, please ask me.You will write a paper that fully explains your ideas.Idea BrainstormingHere are some different ways to start brainstorming:Think of broad social issues that need addressing. We dont live in a utopian world; whats wrong with society? What problems do we need to fix? What inequalities or injustices do you see? What fires you up?Think of an audience or group of people that could use help and reasonably benefit from a technological approach. For example, Paro is a stuffed animal/robot that has been used to provide comfort for elderly patients with dementia. There are several competitions for video games devoted to positive social change in a variety of areas, such as water conservation, responsible financial behavior, or protecting your privacy online.Think of as many technologies as you possibly can. Think creatively beyond just websites, apps, and social media.Good ideas have manageable and creative uses of technology; a clear yet creative goal; and a clear target (i.e., who it is you will help). Hint: Im going to teach the world by making a Facebook page about X is not a good idea by any of these parameters.PaperThe final paper will be due for ALL by 2am April 29th. For those graduating this spring, I need to post your final grades by April 30th so please make sure to submit your final paper on time.The paper will be approximately 4-5 pages (a little longer or shorter is fine) and cover: 1) evidence that your chosen focus is a social problem that needs addressing, 2) a description of your technology, and 3) evidence that your technology will be effective at helping the social problem. This last section should discuss affordances of your technology and theories that can contribute to our understanding of your technologys impact.This paper should be written in APA format with APA-style citations. You must include no fewer than 5 peer-reviewed journal articles outside of course readings.A potential outline for the paper may be: Introduction, Focus Area & Target Audience, Technological Means, Theoretical Reasoning (keep in mind this should apply to your tech choice as well as the approach in your content), Anticipated Outcomes, and Conclusion. Remember to justify your arguments with scientific research, not crap by some self-proclaimed technological guru, wizard, ninja, or expert. Note that 90% of the time, a website is not an appropriate source for justifying your arguments. Use credible, scientific sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles).GradingYour final paper is worth 90 points.Generally, the project will be graded on the following: effective use of appropriate technologies, accurate information presented in an appropriate manner, appropriate theory application, quality of submitted final paper, and creativity.READ THIS CAREFULLY: If you want a more specific break-down of how letter grades will be assigned, consider the grading criteria below.
