My talk with Ms. Diana Derry on the introduction of digital humanities tools, namely ArcView Storymaps and Voyant Tools text analysis, into Human Geography, GEOG 1103, was presented at the OU Academic Tex Expo this afternoon. The PDF can be found here.
Despite the low turnout, we garnered some feedback that focused on several issues we are considering as we revise and roll out improved discussion lab assignments:
- Are we trying to do introduce too much, too soon, in 15 weeks?
- Do we scaffold it well enough?
- What are the limits of using the specific platforms we use?
- How are we jsutifying the use of technologies as useful to students.
