I’ll be taping at Community TV in Santa Cruz next Tuesday, and I made a 1’40” clip from my “String Epiphany” piece for them to air.
Talking with Jon Silver of Migrant Media Productions who hosts a show on education in the local community about what he want to bring out in the 10 minutes we’ll hove to talk, we got into an exchange about attributing the decline in literacy to the increased use of technology. I countered that, properly used, technology should enhance and facilitate and inspire increased literacy, from the script writing, storyboard sequencing, and tech manual reading that’s required to create a digital storytelling piece, to the publicity and verbal skills used in promotion, when the student owns their piece and wants others to see it. And of course it has to begin with authentic writing.
Jon agreed, and I look forward to an interesting discussion.
