Teacher Friends and Group Texts

As I mentioned in this post, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with some incredible teachers and scholars since I started my academic journey at SSU. My hope to continue working on projects with these people has come to fruition several times this summer. Today’s post, in particular, focuses on a project I’ve worked on with Danah Hashem and Megan Grandmont.

These ladies have been great sources for talking through academic issues and questions, and this summer, after Megan posted her transmedia series on her blog, we began discussing the difference between transmedia and transmodality in a (very) long group-text. Through this conversation, we attempt to determine what these concepts mean, and although I’m not sure we all still completely agree on the definitions, the resulting conversation was fascinating. At the end of the conversation, Megan suggested we turn our long-winded and (dare I say) interesting group-text into a Storify. Over the next few weeks, we created a multimodal story that exemplifies our process of determining meaning for these two complex terms. Please enjoy our Storify!

*Update: I have updated the link to the story above because Storify ended.
