TheImpact of Cultural Diversity on Our day-to-day life

Culturein the United States is so diverse such that something can happen,and one fails to propositionally note the changes. However, culturaldiversity has created popularity in the United States especiallythrough social media Americans can watch television, movies, andlisten to music at their comfort (Hechtetal.,2003).This cultural growth has been heard and seen by most of the people inthe urban areas across the globe (Livingstone,2004).However, at one point in life, I failed to notice the issue of medialiteracy that is very popular to date. To me, media literacy wassomething that was very new because I had not heard about before.

Personally,I failed to understand that media literacy is based on universaleducation context and that it has brought about several meanings thatare different to the outside world. For instance, most of theAmericans have adopted the use of social platforms such as Facebook,Twitter, and other platforms to advertise the services or productsthey offer. However, I didn’t note that individuals had recognizedthe need to use and engage in popular cultural diversity, alsoreferred to as “critical media literacy approach.”

However,this does not mean that I am not an active participate in popularculture. I am convinced that I am an active participate in culturecreation and diversification. For this reason, I would like to createan artifact that is popular and provide universal access. Forinstance I can create an artifact on how to protect young childrenand the youths from popular culture and commercial messages theseaspects can be made common through cell phones, billboards,facebooks, and school buses. According to Lambertand Taylor (2010), weneed to protect the young children’s minds from been eroded bysocial media. The message to embed in the artifact is the benefits ofusing communication gadgets rightfully and for the intended purposethe message will also discourage children and the youths fromaccessing materials that can erode their minds (Spindler,2004).

Basedon what I have learned from the learning resources, it is paramountto create a difference in life for this reason, I feel the studentscan be encouraged to be capable and revisers of cultural growth.However, they need to be protected from culture and media that isbeyond their age.
