Become a (Super)model
Task: Find a way to actively engage in being a digital citizen in a public way. It should be an activity that is outside of your norm.
Not-so-secret objective(s): 1) Encourage learning about digital citizenship by engaging in it. 2) Model good digital citizenship for others.
I chose to become a (super)model by answering calls for participation on Twitter and engaging in online conversations via video.
I answered Autumm Caines’ (@Autumm) call to do an online meet-up with Gardner Campbell (@GardnerCampbell) as part of a Virtual Connecting event (@VConnecting) at the New Media Consortium conference (#NMC16). I had learned of Virtual Connecting and the conference buddy system a while back but hadn’t done anything with it. Since we were assigned a reading and video by Gardner, I thought it was a great opportunity that tied to this Nousion/digital citizenship course in several ways. You may view the meet-up below. We met live on video together in Google Hangouts and had some great discussion. It was also broadcast live and recorded.
When I was looking at other scheduled meet-ups, I saw one with Bryan Alexander for later in the day. I know him from my ONID digital storytelling class so didn’t want to miss it. Here is the recording of that one.
As if that wasn’t enough, I also responded to Alan Levine’s (@cogdog) call for video responses to the question, What if there was a Creative Commons certification? Here is my response.
