With this module, you will be looking at “new” technologies that affect the way we communicate with one another inside the classroom and beyond. Because this course is interested in the way technology has impacted literature, I encourage you to look at a writer’s blog or a series of YouTube videos that a writer has put together. In module three, you looked at the way a writer managed his/her online presence. With this module, you’re going to look at the ways in which technology functions with regard to literature. Where does literature exist online? How has literature evolved to take advantage of technology? Of course, literature is a wide field, so you might be interested in a kind of literature that is very different from what I might enjoy or that your classmates might enjoy. No worries. I don’t pre-define what literature means. You can focus on fiction or non-fiction. It’s up to you. The job here is to consider the ways in which technology has rearranged our views of literature or, perhaps, the way in which we access literature. To give you an example, go to the app store on your favorite device and do a search for “literature.” If you find something that looks interesting, give it a try (especially if it’s free). Try searching for a particular author. As it is near Halloween, I looked up Edgar Allan Poe and found some very interesting apps, including animated versions of some of his frightful stories. 1,000 words.
