En el taller “Gifs, Memes and Cool Web Stuff” ofrecido por Alan Levine el miércoles 3 de febrero asistieron un grupo de alrededor de 12 estudiantes, a los cuales se añadieron profesores de informática. El Sr. Alan habló de diferentes temas relacionados al área de redes sociales, blogging, creación de GIFs y memes y como utilizarlos con un propósito más allá que hacernos reír. El taller fue dinámico ya que los estudiantes participaron de un corto juego que tiene como propósito preparar a la persona para una presentación oral. También se presentó una lista de diferentes páginas en internet que pueden ser útiles para los estudiantes.

Les compartimos un pequeña biografía de Alan Levine

He is recognized for expertise in the application of new technologies to education. A pioneer on the web in the 1990s and an early proponent of blogs and RSS, Alan shares his ideas and discoveries at CogDogBlog. Among his recent interests are new forms of web storytelling (including 50+ Web 2.0 Ways To Tell a Storypechaflickr, and the StoryBox), as well as leading and teaching the open digital storytelling class, ds106.

Most recently (October 2014-March 2015) spending four months as an Open Learning Fellow at Thompson Rivers University, he typically fills time consulting with higher educational institutions on digital technologies and the affordances of the open web working with institutions such as the Digital Media Hub, Mozilla, and Virginia Commonwealth University. He has served as an instructional technology specialist at the University of Mary Washington, following leadership positions at the New Media Consortium and the Maricopa Community Colleges.

When possible, he enjoys the peace of a little cabin in Strawberry, Arizona. His interests include digital photography, bending WordPress to his whims, and randomly dipping into the infinite rivers of the internet.
