I have chosen this picture of the New York Public Library Archives for several reasons. One, it represents a large repository of information which is stored in familiar book form. And two, because it shows the hallway in perspective, representing a single way of looking at the world. Recently, the advances in technology have begun to change our culture’s perspective. Now, we can store more information in a smaller area and we can look at the written word in a more fluid way.
Hi everyone, I’m Heather. This is my third course in the program and I’m really happy to be here. The last course that I took was ETEC 500, research methodology. In it, I began to research digital storytelling and narrative writing. Through this process, I began to understand that the definition of text and writing is already changing. It caused me to become very interested in the subject so I took this course to explore the matter further.
