Digital Stories 2011!

Check out MyMediaUCT on YouTube! I’m posting Nicholas’s one here as a teaser – be sure to check them out and comment.



Seminar – Monday 4 April

Welcome back for the second half of the semester! We’ll be continuing with digital storytelling today. Litha and Christine will be presenting on the Jean Burgess reading “Hearing ordinary voices: cultural studies, vernacular creativity and digital storytelling”. Tendai will also present for us, deconstructing a digital story she found online using the 7 elements of digital storytelling. If you have not visited our folder in resources (on Vula), please do so – lots of interesting resources that I’ve put up for you there. 

Also, please complete the twitter questionnaire and email it to me, I have only received 8 thus far. Today we’ll take a look at your blogs so far and each one is required to chat about their blogs, where they hope to take it and classmates can offer feedback and suggestions. Please email me your blog address if it is not displayed on the right and I’ll add it asap.

How are the digital stories coming along? How are you enjoying this topic so far? Feel free to add your comments:) Here is an interesting blog post on digital storytelling, Krista’s Tech Tidbits which has links to lots of nice resources.
