Techniques for adding comments to Conversation pages

[edit | edit source]

Inserting a transclusion of a section of a conversation journal page into a conversation page

[edit | edit source]
  • Create a section in student journal with a name that matches the conversation. For example, if you are commenting on Orality on September 10, 2023, create two new paragraphs in your journal page: one styled as Heading 2 with the date, and one styled Heading 3 with the word matching the title of the conversation page, in this case, Orality. You can also copy/paste the code below in the code box, and use edit source instead of edit.

In our collaborative conversation, ChatGPT suggested that social media exhibits

some characteristics of orality due to its real-time nature and conversational style. Social media platforms often facilitate quick exchanges of information, similar to face-to-face conversations in oral cultures. However, social media is primarily a written medium, as the information is typically conveyed through text, images, and videos, rather than solely through spoken words. Therefore, while it may embrace some oral-like features, it remains essentially a written form of communication.

I'm not sure I agree with this. I think social media is much more oral than written. It may be circumstantial: perhaps some type of social media, that is immediate, is oral. And others that are more delayed are written? I guess we will see. (edited at 11:36am)
