TV commercials are increasingly influencing opinions about the world we live in. Children are more vulnerable than adults, more willing to comply with the community’s demands on the use of well-known trademarks.
During the “Media Messages” workshop (25. 1. 2022.), I discussed with sixth graders several examples of media manipulation.
Many images are manipulated around the world every day using various methods and techniques to achieve the desired results. Some photographic manipulations may be considered works of art, but they are, in fact, unethical practices, especially when used to deceive the public.
Misinformation is an intervention on the basic elements of a communication process, manipulation is a form of social influence, which relies on a change in the opinions, attitudes, and behaviors of a person.
Workshop conducted by Prof. Marius-Pop Iuliana.
