I used Screencast-O-Matic to create a video autobiography of my digital writing life for the NWP Summer Institute.
A few quick reflections after creating the video
2008 was a really productive/fruitful time for me when it came to digital writing. I think some of that came as a result of feeling somewhat isolated in a new job. I tend to turn to digital spaces when I’m not getting my needs (curiosity, support, companionship, etc.) met physical spaces. Ideally, I’m in both physical and digital spaces writing and having conversations. My explosion of digital writing in 2008 was also the result of having encouragement from our Instructional Tech Director.
There’s a lot of crossover for me from one space to another. I’ll see a link to an article on a friend’s Facebook, tweet the link and discuss it on Twitter, and then summarize the conversation in a blog post.
