Me…A Digital Storyteller?

benI entered the class because I wanted to do something I wasn’t sure off.  I love writing poetry and I text quite a bit, but I never viewed it as creating narratives. The third objective, “Explore a variety of digital technologies for the explicit purpose of employing them to create various narrative forms.” defines what I have been doing when I write a text or send an email or my ocassional posts, sending pictures, likes or messages on Facebook. One of my digital expressors says it like this, “sampling different forms of telling. Expressing your ideas and opinions using the media such as online social networking and music are ways that I can fully express my understanding of the concept. creating an identity for ourselves of who we are is important in being able to show the world what we think. Leaving your work out there and inspiring others to express themselves is something i am hoping to fulfill. Contributing in the process of bettering the world through ideas ,specifically story telling.” I have been telling digital stories and writing my narratives for so long and didn’t know it. Clarity at last! I have accepted it and now added to my resume “BLOGGER “. Hello world!

  1. I write poetry and raps as well. At first, I didn’t look at them as forms of storytelling either, but second looks usually change perspectives. And I like the fact that storytelling is diverse in this sense.

  2. HELLLLLLOOOOOOO WORLD! That will be coming soon on your own site, with your own domain name, and with your very own web hosting account. We like to call them ‘grown-up blogs’ as they are fully under your control and use your own thought out name (no myblog.tumblr.com).
