After viewing both the video and reading the short article I have come to the conclusion that there are amazing possibilities for the education world through use of the internet. With the rise of digital use in the modern day and sites such as facebook and twitter, people are easily available to communicate with one another. The usage of a personal cyberinfastructure would be ideal in my eyes and would vastly improve the learning system in some ways. The part where Campbell discusses the possibilities that can be done through cpanel was very enlightening. This video and article made me much more excited for this digital storytelling class and the learning experiences that can be achieved along with it. Through the whole process of sharing and receiving info through various online media sources, the education system as a whole could definitely be improved on. Having a personal website is a crucial first step in this process and offers an educational experience in itself. Overall, the material from both the video and the article was very interesting and eye-opening. I’m super excited about what we will be doing in the future with all of this technology available at our hands.
