Edwards: The Communication Age
We are in "the communication age." No matter who you are or how you communicate―from baby boomers to millenials, born digital or getting there―we are all members of a society who connect through the internet, not just to it. From face-to-face to Facebook, this book invites you to join the conversation about today′s issues and have your voice heard. This contemporary and engaging text is built from the ground up to bridge the gap and unites our diverse community. It shows students how to apply foundational concepts while incorporating technology, media, and speech communication to foster civic engagement for a better future. We are communication.
This dynamic new format is ideal for students in online and traditional courses who prefer a more contemporary, multimedia-integrated presentation for learning. It provides students with integrated links to engaging video and audio as well as access to complete academic and professional articles, all from the same pages found in the printed text.
