I have been challenged a lot, especially by CSS, this week, but this is definitely a week of firsts for me. It’s the first time I’ve created a podcast, the first time I’ve used codes to set up a website, and it’s the first time I’ve used Twine! Exploring the applications for reclaim hosting was also helpful as I see what else is available to use.
Since there have been so many firsts this week, it’s a great feeling to have completed so many new tasks. I’m still doing some work on my website and on Twine though, because there’s so much that can be done on them. I’m really enjoying Twine. When I turn my attention back to my classes for the fall, I want to begin creating opportunities to use a wiki and to use Twine. Those tools are the ones I have most quickly seen opportunities for, but I’m hoping to use my website as well.
I want to use digital practice more in my classes to give my students a new kind of responsibility and agency with their work. I believe if they know their work will be online, where others can see it, then it will impact how they look at assignments. They should also come to experience the confidence like what I have gained from embracing challenges of technology this week!
