an invited presentation for the Media Literacy initiative at Wagner College, presented April 26, 2013



Digital Footprints and Creativity: Dive into ds106


From your own ledge, the waters of online space may be clear and inviting, murky and dangerous, or just not worth the effort. This session offers a known and safe place to take a safe dive into blogging and digital storytelling, and offers a sampling of the experience people have had for 2 years with the open digital storytelling class, ds106 (http://ds106.us/). The jumps will include

seeking our own digital footprints

  • exploring the work of current students in ds106
  • creating a digital space of your own, a personal cyber infrastructure
  • finding or starting a digital / personal voice
  • connecting as a participant in the ds106 community
  • communicating within a Wagner ds106 cohort and beyond
  • creating media in response to the ds106 assignments http://assignments.ds106.us/
  • completing daily create challenges http://tdc.ds106.us/
  • narrating ideas and process in an online space

Watkins:
As with any school assignment, I endeavored to follow the parameters: “Find nearest over-looked everyday object. Fabricate a story about it being a key part of your childhood.” whilst retaining internet anonymity and furthering my own creative development. I feel that TDC is a fantastic motivator to practice drawing from life, my dream of being creative every day.

Lara Audio burden lifted
I’m no longer afraid of audio. I’ve come to terms with doing the assignments and I’m very familiar now with the programs that accompany it (such as Audacity).
