Since readings mention new technologies and its effect, I have tried finding an innovative way to participate in the discussion. You can watch it below.

However, I would like to add some thoughts about the process.
Regarding difficulties, it took more time than I expected and I struggled to find the middle of academic and social media texting (Because readings mentioned it). Moreover, I was late for a day to upload my answer to the discussion forum.
On the other hand, I would like to stress that I have just enjoyed the creation process, despite it being so long compared to writing just an answer. In other words, this kind of approach was just a passion for me compared to writing an academic text. Furthermore, I have learned some new skills during the process.
In addition, it was made on PowerPoint!
That’s why I advocate utilizing digital literacy!

Hi Abdu,
This is TERRIFIC! I love how you really took hold of this digital form of self-expression. I look forward to hearing more about your process when we meet on November 1st. What do you see as the benefits to scholars like you having this ability to promote their research and ideas in video (over text)? Do you think PhD programs should emphasize their students’ development of multimedia forms of expression? Currently, I think most PhD programs emphasize the development of critical thinking/critical reading and academic writing skills to the exclusion of other literacies.

The most noticeable thing is that creating digital media is more interesting and effective for me. Actually, when I write text, including articles, I should have a 15-20 minutes break each hour, otherwise, I will have a headache. However, despite I have worked 4 hours for one session for this media I have felt just joy. In addition, for the general auditorium, such expression is more interesting than reading a big number of texts. Therefore, since one image and illustration could express the meaning of a number of words and it is interesting than texts, we can reach the engagement of youth to the research world.
