Breaking Up in the Digital Age

The following cartoon is a tale of breaking up and communicating in general in the digital age.  Helena Burns and myself worked on this ‘fun’ project together.  We both like GoAnimate and we wanted to create a funny cartoon about how digital technology is transforming communication.  We were both inspired by the public service announcement, Dumb Ways to Die. The song is catchy and darkly funny – it conveys the point of being safe around trains without being too indignant.  We wanted to do the same thing, but teach media literacy skills.  We brainstormed a public service announcement in which we comically discuss faux pas in communication.  So here we present “Breaking Up in the Digital Age” in three scenes.

Scene 1 – Jeremy Breaks the Bad News

Scene 2 – Prof. Turner Shares Her Perspective

Scene 3 – Jeremy Breaks The News to Ashley and Learns an Important Lesson
