Virtual Symposium: Infomancy

I was inspired by Jolene Kemos’ virtual garden and I used Thinglink for my virtual symposium as well. (Title inspired by Harris, 2006).

Here is the link:

    Wow. Seriously. Wow. Beautiful.

  • Bob Lucore

    Very impressive indeed!

  • Darren

    How wonderful! I love to see each person’s personality come through in their projects. We’re all catalysts that create something new out of what come into contact with. The lines that affected me the most was from the Cohen poem:
    There is a crack in everything
    That’s how the light gets in.
    Thank you so much!

  • Molly McKinney

    @darren Thanks! I’ve loved those lines for a long time, I can’t even remember when I first heard them. This was fun to put together, I started with the Robert frost poem and after that the poem associations came pretty fast.

  • Stephenie Springer

    The poetry was a nice touch. Very creative!

  • Michael Stephens

    SO COOL! The poetry adds so much dimension to your approach to the class and your learnings. The passage about the heart and soul was lovely.

  • Tammi Bozich

    Wow, very beautiful presentation. It was so cool to hear that first song again. I actually sang it when I was in choir in high school. Good times. I love your pictures and your poems and all of it! 🙂 How did you find all those lovely poems?

    • Molly McKinney

      Thanks @tbozich ! I sang that in high school choir as well! 🙂

      All of those poems are favorites of mine. After I got the initial association (the stars being the different things I wanted to highlight from the seminar, and the Robert Frost poem came to mind), the poetic associations came rather quickly. I have all of them in books at home–books that are still piled on and all around my desk at the moment! 😉
