PLE Assignment 4: Video Blog Reflection

Paula Duckworth



As we reflect on what I learned about digital media and ways that we can create our own video resources. Our class materials consist of eBooks on teaching with Digital video: Watch, analyze, create and the second eBooks is Acquiring Digital video by Bernard Robin and Daniel Tillman. 

In the first eBook, we learned about the video a ubiquitous presence which is how digital video changed over the years.  According to the Digital Ethnography group at the University of Kansas (HTTP://  The eBook also talks about how the inclusion of video recording and mobile device as a profound effect on digital video.  “A video can be recorded on cell phones application, and wirelessly uploaded to YouTube.  As these technologies become more mobile devices has a profound effect. Ubiquitous, intuitive, and affordable, digital videos are being created at an exponential rate (Bell & Bull, 2010). 

The second eBook is Acquiring Digital Video, by Bernard Robin, and Daniel Tillman in this eBook they talk about how there has been changing the way information is, created shared and used in our world today.  The traditional analogy tools such as typewriters, phonograph record, films, and standard televisions have declined as they have been replaced by their digital counterparts: computers, compact discs, and MP3 files, digital video and high definition broadcasts” (Robin & Till).  Most people see this as new digital tools to better-sounding clearer looking digital output systems.  In this chapter of the eBook they talk about ways for editing and sharing video in a broader sense of some of those ways are:  

  • Playing digital video on a computer,  
  • Downloading video from the web 
  • Capturing video from your computer screen 
  • Embedding YouTube videos on your web page.   (Robin & Till) 

Just as digital images can be saved in different file formats such as JPEG, GIF, BMP, and PICT, digital video can be saved in a variety of file formats as well.

  1.   It is the way that information is shared through mobile, tablets, pc, laptop and desktops.  Which makes data appears attractive and informative to the end users.   

2.   How is digital media evolving in our lives? It evolves in our lives because the internet is almost at its peak state, digital media like domain are all set to be a part of our lives. “Whether in the form of education material like e-books for schools, universities or corporate e-learning or any kind of audio-visual clips concerning a documentary film etc. among others all act as a digital media” ( p-277-133-htm). 

3.   A dramatic changed with the invention of digital media is that it gets removed the wastage of paper.

I learned a lot about digital citizenship. One thing that really stuck out to me about digital citizenship is it is the way that one interacts online.  Terry Heick has offered that digital citizenship is “The quality of habits, actions, and consumption patterns that impact the ecology of digital content and communities.” In short, it’s taking care of the “things” we depend on in digital spaces (  Teach Thought Staff  November 18, 2018).  I also learned that at times we want to dismiss what we know about the digital age, because we don’t always use it or understand it, but it is here to stay and when we want to pretend that it doesn’t exist, it continues to evolve.  I remember ten years ago the way the internet and the tablets where you were lucky to have one now a day you are behind the time if you don’t own one.

  My personal statement:  I maintain educational integrity. I will be mindful of what I post online.  I will be respectful of what others and give them credit for using their work.  I will get involved to stop and report cyberbullying.  I will not allow myself to sit back and allow others to take advantage of another person’s work.

 I will take responsibility for what I post online if it offends or negativity effect another.  I will be respectful of others work crediting them when I use their work.  I will not allow myself to sit back and allow others to take advantage of another person’s work. I will maintain my ethical, professional and educational standard while using and interacting in the digital and naturally in the world.

            Throughout this week I have learned that digital citizenship is important in how I interact with technology. The definition of copyright is when the legal right, given to an originator or an assignee to print, publicly perform, film or record.  Literary, artistic, or musical material and to authorize others to do the same.  This article speaks about the five Dimension of Digital

Citizenship, which was very good read it touch on how technology is evolving and students adapting to the changes.

Copyright issues are the use of other people’s content, and other peoples use of information and capabilities you make available (   The definitions have really put a clear understanding for me about the importance of copyright and why it is important to protect other things in this digital age.  Information privacy is the privacy of personal information and usually relates to personal data stored on computer systems.  The article describes information privacy and makes sure to ensure that information is kept secure… by encryption, authentication and data masking.  The purpose of this way of protecting the data is to make sure that only those who are authorized to view it can have access to it (

My Experience for EDU 520

I am struggling with this class, It has a lot of things that are required weekly and pushing me to do things that I would not normally do. Online identity is something that I did not concern myself with or focus on. Through taking this online classes it is causing me to really be conscious about what I say and do online because it is part of my online identity. I mentor a set of young ladies and I was just speaking to them about what they are posting on their Instagram and Facebook.

While reading the 5 Ways to Protect Your Online Identity, the article said “Sharing too much on social media may put your personal information in the wrong hands. Pay attention to not only the pictures and posts you share but also to your privacy settings, as well, so that you’re limiting the number of people who can see what you’re sharing. The Center for Identity at the University of Texas offers tips for managing privacy settings on a variety of social media platforms. If your kids are on social media, you may also want to check their privacy settings. And when it comes to posting, make sure they understand what’s safe to share—and what’s not.”
