DISCUSSION POINT 7: TECHNOLOGY AND THE MEDIA
Dyfodol believes that:
It is plain to see this is where culture, the economy and social interaction are being transformed at an extraordinary rate. It is central to the project.
How to use technology and the media to strengthen the Welsh language and to serve Welsh speakers is too large a question to discuss in detail here. But the main players, S4C and the BBC, need to accept their responsibility not only to provide content, but also to promote the Welsh language in the digital world including the social media. An essential step, which Cymdeithas yr Iaith are campaigning for, is the establishment of a Welsh Ofcom.
DO YOU AGREE WITH US? HAVE YOU ANY FURTHER COMMENTS ON HOW TECHNOLOGY AND THE MEDIA CAN SUPPORT THE GROWTH OF THE WELSH LANGUAGE?
