One of my assignments this week read, in part, as follows:
As you have explored and worked with content creation tools (or other technology) what assumptions and biases have you noticed? What is built into the templates? Are the online tutorials beginner user friendly or do they assume that all audience members know what is meant by click and drag, menu bar, open, privacy settings, post, etc. etc.
I happened to come across a new digital tool just as I was about the answer this prompt. The tool is called PowToon and can be used to create short movies and slide shows. I wanted to try it out, so I decided to answer this prompt using PowToon. This was a great learning experience and it was interesting for me to learn about this tool while focusing on the assumptions and biases of the program. See below for what I learned.
