The Conversation Prism
October 8, 2009
The conversation prism is a visual display that has basically organized all the functions, programs and tools that are available through the Internet and sorted into specific categories. This is a helpful tool because anyone that visits and views this educational graphic can determine which sites and tools they should utilize according to their goal or topic.
For example, if you wanted to see and read about the reviews or perspectives on a certain product, you could go to the Reviews and Ratings petal to see a myriad of sites that you can visit in order to get that information. Also, if you wanted to start your own blog you could look at the conversation prism in the blog platforms petal and figure out which blogging program would be best to use.
Almost anyone can use this as a source. When our class creates our own version, we assume that our audience will be students, professionals, people within the interactive media field, business people and some of the people within the higher education field.
Here is the site if you would like to find it online:
