The Personal Cyber-Infrastructure

Monday, January 18th, 2010

The idea of a personal web space was something that I had thought of but had never really considered to the depth that it was presented by Gardner Campbell and Jim Groom. For me the web had always been a resource and a technical innovation that is helpful for the research and for learning.  However, […]

I really liked being in this class.  When I first found signed up for this class i had no idea of what I was getting myself into. The first day when he said no test I was like YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! My very first class where all I have to do  is learn and keep it to […]

Final Reflection

Alright, so I just wanted to start off saying that I loved this class. It was by far one of my favorite classes I have ever taken here at Mary Washington! However, the first day I walked into the class and found out that we would have to set up our own spaces and eventually […]

Course Reflection

I had a lot of fun taking this class. Being a computer science major, I knew it wouldn’t be too difficult for me, but I didn’t expect it to be as fun as it turned out to be. For the first time teaching the class, I thought the professor did a pretty decent job. There […]

I feel like it will paint a better picture of what our class has meant to me and the effect it had on me if I go about this reflection from a completely different angle. No matter how I look … Continue reading

Digital Storytelling: Week 1

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

I’ve been meaning to write this post ( and the following three) incrementally over the past month, but time has been tough on me these last few weeks. I’m getting the blogging DTs being away from the bava for so long, but reading and interacting with the blogs the students in Digital Storytelling have set […]

Augementing Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

 I understand what Douglas C. Engelbart is explaining in his paper but its just the thought of having a computers do all of this for us makes us seem a little lazy. And last time I checked, being lazy wasn’t a good thing. But the way Engelbart breaks down how we process information in our brains […]

Reflection: Personal Dynamic Media/Personal Cyber Infrastructure

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

A dangerous misconception may sound like the name of a bad suspense movie or band, but that’s exactly what we’re dealing with here. Not the movie, or the band; but the lack of realization.  I am referring to is something Gardner … Continue reading

I’ve always lamented the terrible computer training students receive throughout their educational careers, from elementary school to college. Quality digital curricula has been reserved for the IT guys and CS majors. For those of us who consider ourselves tech savvy yet not necessarily professionals, or even hobbyists, this has been more than a little frustrating. […]

Digital Storytelling: the Course

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

OK, so I’ve been on paternity leave enjoying some quiet time with my ever growing family, and as a result the bava as well as my general annoying presence online has been limited as a result. But, despite that, I’ve been developing (while at the same time teaching) a course titled Digital Storytelling for the […]
