My motivation for this essay is to open the eyes of my generation and generations to come that while technology is interesting and useful it is also important to have a connection with people in the flesh.
This statement of purpose can apply to almost anyone. It does not apply as much to the older generation as much as the generation growing up in the time where technology is used almost anywhere and is a large part of our day to day lives.
I think this purpose is something everyone could share who uses technology frequently, which is a large audience around the world.
I believe this purpose is something I will be proud of sharing once I put it all together because I think it can be eye opening.
1. List of audience characteristics: Children, teens, young adults, and anyone else who uses technology often.
People you let technology get in the way during social gatherings or keeps them from going to social gatherings.
Class can be anyone who can afford to have a phone or access to other technologies.
2. I believe the audience will see good points in my purpose. They should be interested because a lot of people, including myself, focus too much of their phones and laptops instead of facing what is right in front of them. They might be disinterested, or hostile because they cannot imagine not having their phone with them all the time, especially
when at a social gathering.
Context: The context of this communication is one that will most likely happen in a class presentation, or a conference about technology’s effect on society.
The place of communication can be in a classroom or maybe a small gathering. Perhaps they could also be reading my purpose while in the comfort of their own home.
The space of the communication might be in a school assembly because that would be where I could reach the broadest of my audience.
My statement of purpose: Technology (mostly phones), while they may have benefits to society, are also hurting the social part of society when people are focusing on their technology rather than what is going on around them.
