Weekly Summary: Nine

This week was all about Web Assignments. Before now, I had never thought how creating and altering web pages could be a form of digital storytelling. I now see how this can be a great tool in telling digital stories through editing HTML, as well as utilizing social media to create characters which tell their own stories simply through profile descriptions and Pinterest pins.

I felt that I completed all of the assignments this week to the best of my ability. Some of them were definitely more challenging than others, but I feel that I learned a lot about using the Web as a mode of digital storytelling. Already I have started viewing social media sites and existing web pages differently: what stories do they tell? The information compiled together on someone’s Facebook profile page definitely tells the story of that individual, and I guess I took that for granted for what it really was up to this point. The pictures, statuses, and information provided are a story (hopefully real) of an individual that you and I go to school with or work with on a daily basis. This week has really affected how I approach digital storytelling on the Web.
