Reflect on digital activism

Learners reflect on digital activism.
Rainbow colours reflected on the ground

Congratulations. We are now at the end of Week 3.

Our focus this week was on digital activism and the opportunities and challenges brought by digital technologies to the organisation of social movement. We have focused the discussion and activities on connection action.

In this final task, please identify an example of connective action, explain what it is and why do you think it is a connective action. You are welcome to use the same connective action that you shared an image of in a previous step.

We have discussed how digital technologies change activism this week. Next week, we will explore how digital technologies change contemporary political campaigns, another important element of contemporary politics.
