  4. Dale MacDonald introduces us to Learning Portfolios, Dean Balsamo administers a 20 question 'what came first?' quiz segment, reviews McLuhan & cultural studies, and introduces questions of media literacy. An action packed section, this week.

    If you're in NYC and interested in attending the pre-class meetup next week, get in contact with Shiva Bayat for more information.

    NOTE: Milos was Google-jockeying during the segment; I eventually made a decision not to include it because it was difficult to get a good balance between the exposure for the projection and the room. (Plus, I figured you could basically get the same experience at home by opening another window.)
    I'd be interested to know whether you would prefer that I widen the frame to include the Google-projector, or, alternately, if you might prefer I remain close on Dean Balsamo and keep the focus on her presentation, cutting occasionally to the accompanying slides. Feedback welcome.
