I think that every digital literacy has a place in today’s world. This is a digital world that we currently live in, and it is only going to become more so. I see all electronic media as beneficial in there own way. From the business world to our own personal usage, social media can allow us to connect to everyone and everyone in the world. We can see every news story on Facebook and Twitter, while we chat with our close friends and colleagues. Podcasts, videos, blogs, and whatever else allows us to create a way to share our voice with the world. Websites can be used to portray businesses, musicians, bands, artists, photographers, and anyone else who wishes to share their passions with the world. The internet is our canvas to the paint any picture we wish through so many different ways. And the best part is that all of these digital literacies connect to one another. Links allow us to connect everything we’ve created together, so nothing can be missed by viewers. You can jump from a website to any social media, youtube account, or whatever else and vice versa. It’s a beautiful network of limitless possibilities.
Everything that I’ve created or helped create was a learning experience. I have the mind of a perfectionist, so I am not satisfied with anything I uploaded. I think that that doesn’t make everything I’ve uploaded bad, but there is always room for improvement. Looking back on my group video, I still think about fixing some one the final credits and a couple pictures uploaded as well. The Podcast needed a shorter final interview, and maybe a couple more interviews as well. My blogs were decent but could use much more work with links and captions. I did improve on those at the end, but I think I could try to make everything look more appealing to the audience. My website I was very passionate about making, and I think it looks pretty good. I see a few more details I wish to work out, but as I said previously there’s always room for improvement. I have grown much more confident in my skills as someone who is able to creatively use all digital literacies as we have, however I also see many more hours of work to perfect everything I’ve worked on.
The only way I see myself improving is by putting in as many hours as I can in producing and creating videos, music, and whatever else that interests me. I also prefer the idea of quality over quantity. For example, I would rather put out one amazing video compared to putting out ten mediocre ones. It is important to push yourself creatively. The more unique you are, the more you stand out. This is crucial for success in whatever you do. You always need to ask yourself, “What separates you from everyone else doing this?” When you find that answer, you know you are on the right track.
