First of all. I have to remind myself that this blog is dedicated to reporting on learning everything I can about digital storytelling in all its definitions. To do this, I follow an online class open to the internet called DS (for Digital Storytellling) 106.
I often post the Daily Create challenges I do for that site.
However, I don’t often post my current thinking on topics that emerge, and I am about to change that. These posts won’t be for everybody, but I know there are a lot of my digital storytelling students following Mind on Fire who might be interested in what Lifelong Learning looks like.
Alan Levine, edugeek from Strawberry, Arizona, and one of the driving forces behind the DS 106 class, is currently challenging the heck out of my poor little not-so-post-modern brain by asking me/us/the class to consider the current culture of remix and mash-up art. To that end, I have been excessively informed by a four video series by Kirby Ferguson called Everything is a Remix.
Alan also posted some remixed videos on our assignment pages
