2013 - The Year We Make Contact?

Welcome, digital literati of the 21st-century!
You will use this spot to check for assignments, find documents and other media, to link to your colleagues blogs, and to form a mini-network of fellow digital composers. (So, yes, in a way, we will make contact - with a brave new digital world!) Let's get started with a simple assignment that will help us connect to each other and establish a place to express our digital creativity:

Digi Lit II Students - Take Note - Complete Before Friday's Class:
Getting Started with Blogger

  1. Create a Blogger blog and customize it to your selection of colors, etc. (You will revisit and redesign it many times throughout the course - so just get something you like that is easy to use and easy to read.)  
  2. Watch the Video below. Then think about these questions:
    • What is my experience with digital media - e.g. blogs, websites, social networks, etc.? Particularly with digital video?
    • How has my world changed since the introduction of YouTube? Can you categorize and describe some of these changes?
    •  How is online video (YouTube, Hulu, Amazon, Vimeo, etc.) different than television?
    • What are some implications (social, spiritual, educational, professional, etc.) related to the brave new digital age that is shaped by our online connections, including video?
After watching the video and considering the questions - post your first blog entry about your thoughts.
