Week 3: Web 2.0 Storytelling

Posted by

Assignment 3:

Part A: Readings

* Share (a.k.a. blog) your initial thoughts about the above readings and their relationship to one another (tag: web20readings) and prepare to discuss in class (if applicable) and online in post comments of your classmates—so you best have setup aggregation by this point!

Part B: Playing

After you have read and consider the above essays, distill a few key points and use one of the well over 50+ tools from Alan Levine‘s “50 Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Digital Story” to try and communicate those ideas in an experimental way using a Web 2.0 tool. Make sure the tool you use lets you embed the project in your blog.

Tag: this part of the assignment web20story

These assignments are due no later than Sunday, February 5th.

P.S. If you are looking for inspiration, check out this now classic video by Michael Wesch and his students put together to explain the impact of Web 2.0.
