A2: Homework - Censorship & China & Google!

Reminder - tomorrow's double is the last lesson on Media Regulation & Censorship. You will be moving onto Media & Collective Identity with Mr Ford next week.
Please make sure you read the rest of "Electronic Child Abuse" by David Buckingham from the book: Ill Effect, BARKER et al, 2001
Then read / re-read the Google Blog Post here: "A new approach to China" and answer the following questions:

  • What issues / moral implications are raised by China’s “Internet Firewall”?
  • What do you think about the Google Blog Post: “A new approach to China”?
  • What links can you make between this form of censorship and the forms of censorship we have encountered in the unit so far?
  • How would you feel as a British citizen if our government imposed similar censorship upon us?

You could also look at the following website (thanks Sehb / Sophie!): "Great Firewall of China".
You also need to read "Video Games" from the book Censored, MATTHEWS, 1994
See you tomorrow and well done to those of you who made in today, inspite of the snow!
Mr. M.
