My apologies to my fellow classmates who are certainly on the ball. I thought I knew what I would do for the 60 second presentation. Then I reread the guidelines, and I may have the wrong idea.
My plan was to use Prezi–since I like what I’ve read about it. I have not actually used it before. I’m not sure I can use it on my acer notebook (it’s been acting up lately, like I need to update everything) so I’ll explore it more at a tech lab somewhere.
I wanted to use photos of manuscript production, printing press, typewriter, moving into the present with word processors and current programs and publication on demand.
I wanted to use the words from a music video called “Words” by the group called Hawk Nelson.
That’s as far as I’ve gotten.
Added: 11/12/13–I’ve reread the guidelines. What is my understanding of the term “new media”? How can I present that in a 60 second video?
I still plan to use Prezi–if I can find a lab that has it on the computers. I’m not sure I know how to strip the audio from a video.
Maybe my idea was too ambitious. Maybe I need to think smaller, shorter. That’s one reason I like poetry. You can say a lot in a few words. How about how new media has effected the classroom? Elementary? Secondary? Or how new media has affected how a poet creates/writes/publishes/performs a poem?
