It’s Thursday night. Tomorrow will be the final day of the Digital Pedagogy Lab. And I’ve created a thing. A couple of things, actually, all combined into one product. Here’s the story (pun? intended. Is that a pun?) of its creation. One of the things I’ve loved most about the Digital Storytelling track is the […]
I set myself an ambitious day today: I was trying to finish two different digital story projects. (And participate in some discussions. And help out some of my fellow DPL folks. And attend a workshop!) Well, so it turns out that I only finished one project. The other is still in progress, and even though […]
My favorite part of today’s Media Exploration Day in Digital Storytelling at DPL 2018 was this project. I did a slightly modified version of a prompt asking us to record sounds from a particular space and create a 5 minute soundscape of that space. But here’s the thing: for storytelling to feel real and important […]
Instructions from Martha in the digital storytelling track today: Start creating your own designed meaning. I signed up for the digital storytelling track at DigPed hoping for the space to make some meaning of nearly two decades of digital storytelling work. This has included teaching students in media and communication at Muhlenberg College, Allentown teenagers…

Another Digital Storytelling mini-challenge: illustrate principles of design through photos taken in 20 minutes repetition alignment & hierarchy contrast space & color balance & proximity … yet to come! 😉
As part of our Digital Storytelling course here at the 2018 Digital Pedagogy Lab, I completed a photoblitz challenge in 20 minutes in response to these prompts: Find a grid pattern somewhere (brick sidewalk or ceiling tiles) Get close! Photograph an ordinary object from as close as you can manage. Illustrate attraction in a photograph today. […]
I started out at the visual table and began with trying the Photoblitz activity. A lot of fun, but I didn’t produce anything that really seemed great for sharing. So I moved on to the 5 photo story activity and found Unsplash photos to tell the story that I told on the first day of […]
This week, I am participating in the Digital Storytelling track at DigPed Lab 2018 in Fredricksburg, VA, taught by the amazing @mburtis. Working collaboratively with @ReidRiggle, my goals for this workshop include the establishment of a Full Spectrum Learning website. (check), reviving my blogging habits (check – kind of), and develop a SHORT story to …
Yes to questions of when *not* to participate in community digital storytelling, what kind of story, to what extent is participation equitable and inclusive? I was pleased to share our #DHSI18 #CritPrax project with Chris Friend (http://www.digitalpedagogylab.com/dhsi2018/ ) and my Detroit-based pedagogical work with folx at this afternoon’s #DigPed workshop led by Anqi Shen. Looking forward …

Campus life in 1968 was a micro version of life in the United States–protests, radical speakers, rattled administrators and trustees. Yes, Muhlenberg College students shook off their quiet conservatism to s…
As I’m writing this at the end of the day, I’m pleasantly tired after two days at DigiPed and my brain is a little fuzzy, so the takeaway I’m describing here isn’t earthshattering. In trying to think about what I’ve learned, I think the biggest takeaway so far is the huge number of digital […]
