New media research is a kind of researching that requires the independent initiative and knowledge to be able to gather the relevant credible information on the required subject being studied while using multiple forms of media to form the best possible understanding. Its essential while doing this to stay open minded and in search for new ideas and unique ways of thinking, doing this you will be more efficient and have a good variety. New media research also requires one to stay up to date with the rapidly evolving technology because modern technology now provides us with the most and easiest accessible information. If one chooses not to stay up to date with modern day technology they will quickly fall behind and lose the opportunity of having a vast amount of easily accessible information.
I feel that I personally am a strong a new media researcher due to my open mindedness and ability to absorb and sort through information. I think its helped my generation a lot growing up with the internet because its made us very familiar with technology at such a young age which makes it easy for us to adapt to the rapidly evolving technologies that make so much information so easy to access.
New Media Research is being able to understand how to gather relevant information, which leads you to the completion of your final project. You should be able to view the information with an open mind and understand it both creatively and factually.
