Transcript of Literacy Narrative

by Sara Pezzoni My Journey to Technological Literacy The Internet allowed me to branch out and experience the world in a completely new way Where It All Began ...and then along came the Internet... I was just four years old when I had my first experience with a computer. My parents owned a 1995 Macintosh Performa and I learned how to draw bodiless stick figures in a program called MacPaint. At age 7, my parents bought our family's first laptop, a Dell Inspiron. They began buying computer games for my brother and I to advance our reading, writing, math, and social studies skills through engaging and fun activities. These programs also helped me understand how to use a mouse, keyboard, and comprehend basic computer functions and navigation. (My Brother & I - aren't we adorable?) Upon reaching 4th grade, my school was introduced to a new computer system that allowed us to send emails to classmates and kids from other classrooms
(which were called "sticky notes")... Rachel: OMG MiChAeL tOtAlLy LyKeS u lollll Sara: OMG RELE? kool Rachel: ikr LOL (of course, these sometimes got us into trouble... but having that method of communication brought us closer together as a school and enhanced our computer and typing skills at a very young age) What does technology mean to me? I use technology as a way to express my thoughts and ideas. ...then came AOL Instant Messenger, which was a complete game-changer... The AIM craze started when I was just 8 years old and I was constantly online and constantly getting into trouble. But AIM did have its benefits - I attribute my quick typing skills to AIM and my
reading and writing comprehension spiked as a result of spending so much time online. AIM also helped me develop the ability to express myself through written words at a fairly young age. At age 9, I was invited to participate in a special class offered by my school for developing web pages for our school's teachers. I learned about the functions of a search engine and quickly became a master of basic HTML. Also at age 9, my parents bought our family's first digital camera, a Sony MVC, which recorded photos on a floppy disk and could only hold 10-15 photos at a time. C L I C K ! At age 11, I enrolled in my first formal typing class where we learned the various functions of a keyboard and the importance of ergonomics. I was already "above average" in the class due to typing practice with IM and email. ...incredibly high-tech for 2000... At age 13, I received my first personal point-and-shoot camera, a Kodak EasyShare. My camera served as a recording device for my life, I took photos of anything and everything so I would remember my younger years later on in life. This was definitely my "experimental photography" phase. At age 15, a family vacation to Hawaii introduced me to the art of photography; I was smitten. I was a young self-taught photographer and came to understand the mechanics of my camera through reading my manual and completing simple searches on Google. At age 16, I received my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D40
(and my second, a Nikon D7000, at 19).

Both of my DSLR's have contributed immensely to my
love for photography and helped create an outlet
for me artistically. I haven't fully mastered the mechanics of my DSLR, but I plan to learn more about my camera in the future.

Photography has allowed me to see a completely new world through my lens. My brother & me - aren't we cute? ...or has photography created a monster?... http://www.saudimac.com/ar/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/apple_macintosh_1984_low_res.jpeg
