My final prezi takes you through what writing started out as and how it changed over time. I would love for any feedback so visit it here: Megan Daly Final Prezi
-Megan Daly


For better or for worse I have completed my final project for module 1. I have put more hours in on this project in 5 weeks than I probably have on work I have done throughout an entire semester in other classes.  I have lived on very little sleep and have been difficult to live with, but I can finally put this to bed and say that I am done and I am proud of what I have created.  I hope that it accurately portrays my evolutionary process as a writer over my lifetime as well as the extensive creative progress that I have made as a result of this module.  I invite you to watch my screencast and welcome any comments you may have.


I was just reading through the requirements for the final project and I realized that you wanted us to write a blog post about the rough draft of the Prezi.  I created a widget in the sidebar of our blog with links for the reflections and the Prezis.  So this is the rough draft of my Prezi  http://prezi.com/5swpxurhjuhs/edit/. It is definitely rough.  I have put alot of thoughts and ideas together that I will begin stringing into a coherent, reflective explanation of my use of writing spaces. Hopefully it will make a lot more sense when it’s all finished.

By redefining the visual and conceptual spaces of writing, cyberspace
has become the term to describe almost anything that can be done on the
Internet and with electronic communication. The sites being visited are
bringing tons of information to the foreground.  Each writing space is
seen as a material and visual field because it is generated by the
interaction of materials and what the people want. The electronic style
is the contemporary writing space that refashions the earlier ways of
writing – papyrus roll, the codex, and the printed book. The readers are
the ones who help define the properties of the writing spaces, since they
put such high demand on the text and the technology.

Writing is when the writer composes a way to express his or her thoughts. The mind may also be seen as a writing space because we do such large amounts of thinking. Just because it simply is not written down does not mean it won’t be at one point in time. The interactions with people may also be seen as a writing space. We all learn things from others, so who is to say that what takes place between those interactions will not end up on some form of paper or technology?

Blogs and tweets are also seen as writing spaces. They are used as a way for the writer to express their feelings, share their lives, share what they feel is important, or even just share what they think is interesting. With blogging and tweeting, others are able to view what is being written within seconds. Once that tweet or blog is posted, it is out there for the entire internet world to see. Many are worried that strangers can see what they are posting, but that is generally the point of blogging and tweeting. One wants to either get their point across or they want opinions on something or they just want to see others who share the same interests. There are many reasons to blog or tweet, but if one gets too personal, many may not be interested.

Not only are blogs and tweets just for fun, but they also can be used on a more professional level. Students in a certain field of study can “follow” a major figure in that field of study and learn more and more everyday about what is going on. They can even interact with those people and ask them questions. Having those professional people out there, makes it much more exciting because one can see that tweets are not for just what someone ate for breakfast or what they are going to do over the weekend. The tweets of professional people are most likely more about how successful they are now, and what things were like when they were in the shoes of a student. It would be great to see advice being given to a student interested in that field of study. It is just a great way for people to interact in general.

Not knowing much about Twitter, is where I’m at right now, makes me that much more interested to see what is out there for me. I feel as though I am a step behind everyone else because I do not have “followers.” But I am willing to learn, and I as I see technology changing every day, I must jog to try and keep up.
