I am an Academic Computing Consultant for Vassar College.
I have a Master’s degree in Education with a focus on Instructional Technology. I taught for 16 years before coming to Vassar. love to develop multimedia projects in support of learning and teaching.
I am VC ’90 and a product of Vassar’s Education department. I have K-16 teaching experience in Indonesia, Japan and the United States. My last job before coming to Vassar was teaching Computer Science and Information Technology at Carver Center for Arts & Technology in the Baltimore County School System.
Hi! My name is Mia Geiduschek and I am a sophomore at Vassar College. I grew up in Menlo Park, California which is about an hour south of San Francisco in the middle of the Silicon Valley tech boom. Aside from this giving me the ability to name WAY too many tech companies off the top of my head, this also gives me the unique ability to be consistently cold here in New York. At home I live with my parents and our two cats: Ricky and Fred. I also have an older sister who lives in San Francisco. At Vassar, I am studying Psychology and Education and I am interested in the intersection between these two topics. When I am not in class or studying, I am usually asleep. However, I do make time for my other campus activities: circus, tour guiding, being a peer listener with The Listening Center, and participating in Jewish Life. I also love spending time hiking, swimming, and cooking.
Hi! My name is Mia Geiduschek and I am a Sophomore at Vassar. I am originally from Menlo Park, California which is about an hour south of San Francisco, right in the middle of the Silicon Valley tech boom. At home I live with my parents, and our two cats: Ricky and Fred. I also have an older sister who lives in San Francisco. At Vassar I am studying Psychology and Education, but I also really love taking art and history classes. When I’m not in class or studying I am usually asleep, but I usually manage to make room for my other campus activities, which are: circus, tour guiding, acting as a peer listener for The Listening Center and participating in Jewish life on campus. I also enjoy spending time outside hiking or swimming, as well as cooking and baking.
“Digital storytelling at its most basic core is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. There are a wealth of other terms used to describe this practice, such as digital documentaries, computer-based narratives, digital essays, electronic memoirs, interactive storytelling, etc.; but in general, they all revolve around the idea of combining the art of telling stories with a variety of multimedia, including graphics, audio, video, and Web publishing.
As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips, and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between 2 and 10 minutes. The topics used in digital storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one’s own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between.”
