Kountze in the News: Effing the Ineffable (An East Texas Revery) | text2cloud - 13 views

  •  
    For teachers working with memoir and teachers interested in archival research, this might be of interest: a multimedia composing project that works with the journals and correspondence of a southern writer who spent much of his life recollecting, in ever finer detail, his childhood during the Depression in East Texas. I teach creative nonfiction and I'm always trying to push myself to think about the possibilities new media composing affords that my students could explore.

Through the Keyhole: Observations on the Ravi Trial | text2cloud - 1 views

  • martphone and the webcam have made it possible for all manner of sexual activity to be recorded and distributed for all the world to see free of charge. This is one way to explain why none of the people who read Ravi’s original tweet, none of the young women crowded around Wei’s computer to see what Clementi and his guest were up to, and none of the people who received Ravi’s invitation to view Clementi’s next liaison bestirred themselves to stay his hand. As Cicco testified, they “really didn’t think that it was that big of a deal.”

    The trial in the cyberspying case at Rutgers is now underway. There is so much here for students and teachers at all levels to consider about ethics, privacy, and the digital life sentence for the accused in the Age of the Google Search. I don't think even our most technologically adept students quite realize that what they text and tweet is there forever.

Well Endowed By Our Creator: Did George Washington Really Invent Viagra? | text2cloud - 6 views

  •  
    Can we use the current primary season to turn attention back to primary sources from U.S. History--the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the writings of the nation's first president?

Cut and Paste Reportage: The Rise of "Whatever Journalism" | text2cloud - 64 views

  •  
    What is plagiarism? A case study of a news story that keeps growing as the headlines change--racism, whites only screening, outrage--even though each story is simply a rewriting of a summary of a letter to the editor. The problem, ultimately, isn't the technology; it's the generation of readers and writers who prefer outrage to curiosity.
