My Digital story!!!

This was a challenge, it is a great experience!!!

I love the idea when we share our stories in ITEC 800 class.
This is a community of learning, I felt so connected with my classmates and with the project.

I went to the workshop at KQED, 3 days.
I met amazing people and I learn how to use the digital programs.

I uploaded my Story in to my YouTube account, then here at my blogger and finally in my SFSU iLearn account. It was very easy I just follow the instructions in every case.

About my story i just want to say that this is one of my biggest fears... thanks for listening.
I hope you enjoy it as I did.

Net Generation

Hello all !!!

I want recommend to all of you the documentary of PBS Frontline, “Growing on-line” very linked with our reading for this week “Educating the Net Generation” by Oblinger Diana an James.

I hope you enjoy it as I did. Because it is amazing to find in a document and at the same time in a TV documentary how kids are getting socially connected and represented in the media, and how they learn from it.

The way net generation is using the web is so different from the one teachers and parents do. Today's Web is more participatory, more social and more flexible than ever before, kids grow up used to surfing and downloading content, they are involved also creating content (uploading photographs, posting opinions, maintaining an online journal, or blog, updating online profiles and creating new personalities thru avatars or "Web 2.0") as well as consuming it, scanning blogs, watching videos and listening music.

Watch it online:
