John Dailey

John Dailey, assistant professor of multimedia, uses blogs as online forums in his courses to share information and stimulate ideas—and it's a trend that's growing. The blogs extend classroom discussions and encourage Dailey's students to think more creatively about their course work. His digital storytelling students collaborated with German students to compare industrial cities in East Central Indiana and the former East Germany. They documented and shared their findings through their blog, adding an international perspective that led them to examine aspects they otherwise would not have considered.
