Hi and welcome to Assignment 1
My Digital Literacy Journey:
In the podcast above I mention a highlight of my digital literacy journey was having a co-authored paper accepted for presentation in New York at the Media Ecology Association Conference. If you have interest in the e-book and it’s impact on the publishing industry please take a look at my latest blog post “Teresa and Judith’s Excellent Academic Adventure” where either our paper or a newly released video of the occasion has been provided (Video prepared especially for this assignment!). A paper on Transformational Leadership, which focused on the new NAIT CEO, also received a story in NAIT Techlife Magazine. Lastly, the Telephone Historic Centre appreciated our group project which explored “The Role of the Telephone in Edmonton as an Expression of Civic Identity”, a small excerpt on their website under “University Study”. Lastly, I also enjoy doing interviews when the media call on NAIT for a Public Relations perspective on a news story.
Putting the Podcast together:
Putting together the podcast was truly an adventure. It is a good thing that I am a stubborn woman. I thank YouTube for some great videos tutoring me on how to build a podcast in GarageBand. I also found a blog post on the topic with very clear directions and a step-by-step approach with pictures. I found the easiest part was laying down my voice track. The challenge came in layering in all the sound effects, which all have different volumes. I sourced the sound effects from the Internet, iTunes and GarageBand the timing and sound volumes were an all day challenge. Thanks also to Jess for bearing with me as I figured out how to post all of this into the class blog.
My preferred means of communication is always face-to-face, but as my podcast mentions I have been establishing my “brand” across a number of social media platforms, so please connect with me in your preferred way:
