Ever wish you could “un-send” an email? Were you ever confused by someone’s texts? Ever have your picture “tagged” by someone when you really did not want anyone to know? In this assignment do the following:
- Describe a misunderstanding or misinterpretation of a message that was delivered through a channel of communication that involves technology (such as e-mail, text, or phone call). Maybe you were trying to be funny, but the message was interpreted as serious; maybe some complex message wasn’t described very clearly; or maybe a message was accidentally sent to unintended receivers. Describe the message that was sent and what channel was used.
- How might the misunderstanding have been avoided using a different channel of communication; why? Which channel do you think could have been more effective, or created less misunderstanding, for this message?
Write your responses in 250 or more words. Submit your work by the last day of the academic week.
