I am replying to your letter from last week. I also wanted to tell you that if you are gointo deliver me a letter, do not do it on the back of a unicorn. It’s “disguise” did not work at all. It only made the unicorn more obvious. People started to call the cops, and I had to get the unicorn to run away, which is much harder than it actually sounds.
I am very thankful that I can help you Aris. I had a great time helping arganee, and now that it is safe, I feel good about your future. M told me that when you traveled here you used the door. Why didn’t you pop out in our classroom? In your letter you said that there was a past gateway that made Arganee “explosive”. There are a lot of bad people online, and that can be a major problem. Was it people abusing the network that caused Arganee to become explosive? Or was their a bad alchemist controlling it? Also, Tokyo isn’t in the Bronx but Japan, and Cambridge is in England, not the U.S. You really need to take Earth studies. You have a lot to learn Aris, but that is ok. Me too.
I do have quite a bit to learn. Here are the some of things I learned in Networked Narratives and also in my travels to Arganee:
- I learned how to make memes and gifs.
- I learned how to use twitter in a responsible and fun way
- I learned how to use a hashtag to connect
- I learned how to build a thoughtful blog
- I learned how to use a network
- I learned how to write blackout poetry
- I learned how to do improv and netprov
- I learned the beginnings of digital alchemy
- I learned how to make a character who is like me, but also really different than me
- I learned how to connect with other people
- I learned how to use Hypothes.is
- I learned how to share in a webinar
- I learned how to make and edit sound files
- I learned how to participate in a twitter chat
- I learned how to “Cook with Anger”
- I learned how to write in different digital spaces
- I learned how to collaborate with other people to make a bigger story
I learned a lot in #NetNarr. I am glad I participated in it,. Every Wednesday I would wake up and look forward to it. I am so happy I was the first kid to ever participate in it. I am sad that it is “paused for now”, but next year I will be able to help other kids be a part of the alchemy. I will try to keep the hashtag alive with some posts here and there.
Joining Networked Narratives was one of the best things I ever did.
Thank you NetNarr for the digital alchemy. Thank you Arganee for the fun.
