General Student Information
This course will examine digital cultures and practice making different kinds of digital media, including websites, blogs, podcasts, videos, and interactive narratives. We'll pay special attention to collaborative modes of participation, making, playing, and learning.
In addition we'll be thinking about current issues in digital culture such as: social media, copyright/copyleft, hacking, security, digital learning, including the DIY: do-it-yourself movement and edupunk, digital storytelling and serious games.
We will use the city of Pittsburgh as our laboratory and learning "playground." So you can expect to explore and digitally document the City.
