After reviewing this week’s learning resources, respond to the following prompts:

  • Discuss how entertainment has shaped and been shaped society. Provide some examples. 
  • What do you think are the benefits and challenges of having readily available entertainment at our fingertips?
  • Shear (2019) observed that throughout most of history, entertainment was a “multi-player” endeavor, but somewhere along the way, it became a solitary activity. Why do you think this occurred? How can entertainment technology be used to promote a greater sense of community?
