My Students Look at their Screens When I Talk

      Teaching a class where every student is "on the computer" most of an entire class period is a little unnerving, but necessary. Limestone students in CM 410 (Digital Literacies 1) are currently working to set up their blogs - trying out different templates, experimenting with colors and images, and adding functionality like a "blog list" to connect all our classmates into a social-networking community.
       Their first posts will be introductory reflections about their involvement with digital media - but they will also be reading and responding to Kevin Kelly's NY Times article on "Screen Literacy." Watch the blog list at the right of this column for their posts on these and other interesting reflections as they matriculate through this class and engage the Brave New World of Digital Literacy!
