    Response to Chapter 7 Reading for INTE 5340

    by

    The chapter 7 reading was intriguing. This time, the amount of academic theory about learning was essentially the entirety of the chapter, and this provided much more substance to delve into. To begin, the concept of social learning is one that is very popular these days. In many ways, this …

    Personal Reflective Summary for INTE 5340

    As we come into the last portion of this course, it seems as though (in both the readings and out assignments) there is an increased emphasis on the participatory, interconnected nature of digital storytelling. That is to say, that an important part of digital storytelling, apart from just the ability …

    Response to New Literacies Chapter 6 for INTE 5340

    by

    Chapter 6 was a definite improvement over the previous chapter that had more or less spent the majority of its time explaining some fairly straightforward examples of uses of blogs. This chapter, however, really decided to dig into more of the academic theory behind the way humans interact with one …

    I continue to learn that digital storytelling, not unlike the opening definition of “literacy” in New Literacies, is a much broader concept than expected (and it continues to grow). The design assignment from the DS106 portion of class definitely demonstrated this. It was odd to approach the concept of digital …

    Response to Chapter Five of New Literacies

    by

    Chapter 5 was probably the chapter that I already knew the most about before reading so far. Most people from my generation are already very familiar with things like blogs: we grew up with them! It’s hard to remember a time when they didn’t already exist.

    So, in this particular …

    Response to Additional Reading for INTE 5340

    by

    Since the digital story I critiqued last week was a VR/360 Video, I decided to look for readings on how to make these digital stories. As it turns out, there’s not a ton of literature out there that isn’t essentially very surface-level advertisement (i.e. look at how great the cameras …

    Personal Reflective Summary INTE 5340

    by

    These last two weeks have been good in INTE 5340 one again. I’ve been primarily interested in our readings in terms of how they can be viewed from a larger scale. Rather than the explanations of minute individual examples/styles of digital storytelling (in the readings), the way those larger concepts …

    New Literacies Chapter Response for INTE 5340

    by

    The primary points of interest came in the opening portion of the chapter, specifically with the broadening definition of the word “remix.” Much like the term literacy, the term “remix” has been broadened beyond its more common usage (remixes of songs, i.e. when DJs remix other popular pop, rock or …

    Personal Reflective Summary for INTE 5340

    by

    These last two weeks I’ve learned about some intriguing new elements of digital storytelling from our assignments, but in particular, I was struck by the idea of digitally-mediated stories versus “truly” digital stories. It arose after reading a blog post from Darren (also in INTE 5340), who read one of …

    Response to Chapter 3 of New Literacies

    by

    Chapter 3 of New Literacies was an intriguing exploration of the myriad ways that recent technology has facilitated new literacies. This leads into an almost inevitable question on page 59 that asks why new literacy practices through technology (digital content creation, social media, etc.) frequently aren’t considered important—especially in comparison …
