    Vlogging/youtube sounds good! You could talk about how it allows people to share things without mediation, look up some marxist theories and say it gives power to people, or find some theories on audiences becoming producers, and 2 step flow
    For examples you could do things like Tom Daley coming out over youtube and Kylie Jenner announcing her pregnancy on it.

    My teachers are so useless and outdated, they literally think email and podcasts are new and digital media

    Thats so annoying, my teacher for section B is okay, she just threw it at us expecting to understand what to do straight away so was a bit annoying. I'm now doing cyberterrorism and looking at wikileaks and anonymous so should be interesting just unsure of what to look for I have a lot like their ideologies and so forth but still a lot to look for

    Aw if you have any resources that would be amazing! We've been given information sheets about representation and theories and stuff but they're not great.
    I got a C because my coursework pulled it up but I really need an A, and my friend got an E

    Whats your target grade if you don't mind me asking?

    OMG - so glad I actually found this question. I need some general ideas on case study ideas... Originally I was wanting to choose British identity as well but figured I could do female representation since I understand most of that stuff... Can I get some ideas or something?? Thanks!!

    I’m doing media too and I honestly don’t have a clue what I’m gonna do 😩 I got an A last year in the exam and coursework, I got really high marks in the exam. But I don’t think I’m gonna do well in this year’s exam. I’m thinking of doing YouTube but I don’t have much notes. My teacher doesn’t even know what she’s doing 😩😩 I basically taught myself last year

    Female identity is a good one, you could talk about the influence of the kardashians.
    One thing you do need to be careful with is that identities doesn't just mean representation, its more focussed on how you represent yourself

    I'm struggling with british identity for examples

    my email is [email protected], it'd be great if you could send me any good AS resources

    Mine is an A, but because of that my teacher always just marks my work as an A without checking when actually its not good enough, so I got a C in the exam last year

    Thanks for the suggestions!!

    I know, I myself am finding it hard to find something to do with British identity... I think it has a very wide scope of things you could do... I guess if you try something narrower and contemporary... the whole thing about the exam is scaring me honestly.....

    The thing I really worry about it how we'll fit the case study... I can only hope that the questions in the exam are good ones... and I have a big issue with time management, I think I need lots of timed exam practice but I really can't concentrate sitting down for hours on an exam paper

    Oh my gosh I’m doing this exam too! I really struggled with the chewing gum extract last year, but managed to do ok.

    This year though my teacher is off ill constantly and there is only 1 media teacher in the school -.- i was thinking either female identity or LGBT+ for mine. My mock went ok, I based it on Disney but my teacher was rather pissy I used none of her texts 😂 I would love to share resources with you guys though!
