The Hangout was part of a weeklong Network Narratives virtual tour that brought students, teachers and guests to youngwritersproject.org from Kean University in NJ as well as digital nomads and innovators from California, Arizona, Massachusetts, New Jersey -- all over. They comments, posted and shared work on the YWP Academy Netnarr Workshop here: https://youngwritersproject.org/netnarr 

Did you have fun with Netnarr? Let Geoff know:  Email me. Or send me a personal message. 

Here's the backstory:
  • Mia Zamora, an associate professor in digital writing/media at Kean (pronounced Cane) University in New Jersey, and Alan Levine, an internationally known digital educator and InterWeb tinkerer, have developed a course around the concept of building stories together on the Internet. 
  • This week they focused on writing and sound -- and on what happens in this networked community. College students, master's students, grad assistants, teachers, digital explorers, other writers, digital artists and hangers on have been visiting the site and have been granted user status.
