a work of electronic literature for each web 2.0 tool
Mark Merino over at Writer Response Theory posts a fabulous table matching up a work of electronic literature to each popular web 2.0 tool. I’ve stolen the whole thing, it’s so useful – I hope Mark doesn’t mind (yell at me if you do, Mark!). Mark suggests using these creative works of fiction and poetry to enrich a course where students learn about social technologies and web 2.0: “You wouldnít think of teaching writing without some examples of powerful rhetoric or inspirational works of literary mastery. At the very least, youíd expect students to be aware of some of the poetic, evocative, and creative potential of language. So why teach a course in Web 2.0 tools without some examples that push the boundaries of functional literacy with these tools?”
Have any of you experience with using creative works like these in teaching web 2.0 and the like?
