Bread Loaf Guest Speaker Donnie Sackey

On Teaching with Technology Philosophies

This past week, my Bread Loaf Multimodal Literacy class read "Teaching with Technology: Remediating the Teaching Philosophy" by Phill Alexander, Karissa Chabot, Matt Cox, Dànielle Nicole DeVoss, Barb Gerber, Staci Perryman-Clark, Julie Platt, Donnie Johnson Sackey, Mary Wendt. Dànielle DeVoss was great about consulting with me on this course when she visited SCU in March, and the article was well received because of how it spelled out the exigency and outcomes for the assignments we're currently composing.

Today, Donnie Sackey was generous with his time and skyped into Santa Fe, NM from Germany and answered questions from members of the class about his experiences with the writing of the article, the motivation behind the article and how he continues to (re)mediate with students.

The class appreciated hearing the perspectives on how digital media can be used in social justice contexts, how multimodal writing can be hand-drawn field journals, and why (re)mediating alphabetic texts can inform pedagogical and writing practices.

Thank you again Donnie for your generous contribution to our classroom dialogue!
