Presentation Posts - Creative Writing in Digital Spaces

Greetings, Class Community. 

We are beginning to share our knowledge with others. Over the next few weeks, we will be conducting class presentations in order to share what software programs we are familiar with with the larger class community. 

Our goal is to create an in class presentation about one aspect of digital writing or an electronic software product that we think enhances creative writing in digital spaces. 

Some students may also choose to present on an artist or creative writer that does creative writing in digital spaces.

The presentation should include the following:
  1. A personal introduction and an introduction to the software or topic
  2. A description of the software’s capabilities
  3. A demonstration about how the software can be used to create digital stories
  4. And an example about how the presenter used the digital writing or software in his/her work. The presenter should include a sample of his/her work using that software or medium.
  5. A conclusion; in the conclusion of the presentation make a statement that includes an opinion  and/or critical views writing in digital spaces. Is digital writing a medium  that is here 'to stay'? Is the software presented a permanent fixture in digital space and will continue to be a medium that people will use to tell stories in the future?
Because someone else in our class community may find the research helpful. Please post a public version of your presentation link in the comment box below. 

Yours truly, 

Dr. Hill

Considerations for Remixing

Greetings, Class Community.

Today we are going to discuss some remix possibilities for your "My Name" assignment.

Some of the remixing techniques that we will consider will be rooted in:

  • a revision strategy that incorporates literary devices into the draft assignment. may be a helpful reminder about literary devices and possibilities. 
  • incorporating images that hold symbolic significance and meaning within your culture or to your audience.  Ways of Seeing by John Berger is always helpful.  
  • a revision strategy that looks at color and font strategically to reflect mood and tone in the work. may be helpful.
  • considering the F Shaped Pattern reading strategies associated with internet literacy to appeal more directly to your readers. 

If you have any questions of concerns, please present them in class or leave comments on this post.

Yours truly,

Dr. Hill
