Hear me out, I’ve never been one to shy away from technology. I’m a “Zillenial,” so I’m preconditioned to want to keep learning more and more in this digital age. However, I’ve had some difficulties, specifically with this Digital History class…
I had so much trouble and went through the whole back and forth with technical support for Reclaim Hosting just to get this site up and running. Once I got that figured out, I had trouble with editing and realized that I had to redownload the WordPress application. There’s been a lot of hard work this early in the semester, but I truly believe it’s worth it.
This class has taught me so much already, and I am so incredibly excited to continue learning even more. I now have my own domain and personal web-space, and I learn each day how to use and control it a little better. The articles that we have read in class have opened my eyes to the possibilities that fall under the digitization of history. Technology has advanced so much in the past two decades that sometimes scientists have a hard time keeping up, so learning something new during every class period makes me feel smarter than a scientist for a short while.
I know that this class will teach me valuable skills that I can use to jazz up my resume and that will help me in my everyday, or at least make it more interesting! Technology likes to keep people on their toes, and I welcome that.
