Moving to Syracuse

As part of my new learning at Syracuse University, I began playing around with the possibilities of using digital storytelling to make sense of my post-Kentucky learning.  Specifically, I tried to teach myself how to podcast and write a digital story through assignments given to me in my coursework.

Thinking about this, I realize there were three steps: ┬áMy poetic doodles, my attempt at a podcast for what visual thinking sounds like, and then with a project I dedicated to James A’Kech Mangui.
