Spinning always impresses with her “reaching” into the unkown. An excellent thing because a lot of what she does is of her own devising, a reaching out of the cube of the classroom.
This leads me back to considering how we make progress. The students are taking the text version of Little Red Cap and manipulating it into a visual version which plays with representation, presentation, and effects. What will they learn is the question. The common concepts we want to know, such as new media’s elements of modularity, media ecology and topology, programming, interactivity, and complex structure are coming along, but one of the more interesting and exciting issues is what the students are teaching each other and teaching themselves. Riveting.
We are working in experimental space. Thinking beyond what’s in line, going behind Milton.
