    Whiteboard Solutions for the Digital Classroom

    March 15th (2:00-3:00 pm)

    with Jason Block and John Zayac

    Description: We will discuss many different methods for doing what would normally be done on a classroom chalkboard. We will describe in detail the best way to carry out each method, as well as both necessary and optional software/hardware needed for each method. The methods discussed will range from low tech (filming yourself at a physical whiteboard, filming a piece of paper as you write on it, using a zoom/blackboard digital white board) to higher tech (using collaborative digital whiteboards, using an infinite space whiteboard, using a wacom).

The workshop is also meant to provide attendants with strategies for conducting remote research as an alternative for traditional fieldwork which may be impacted by  COVID-19-related restrictions.

    Digital Ethnography: Practices and Methods

    March 25th (12:30-1:30pm)

    with Agustina Checa and Miryam Nacimento

    Description: This workshop builds from the theoretical considerations explored in the first workshop of the Digital Ethnography series. It provides an overview of practices and digital tools for retrieving different sets of data from online social worlds and explores more pragmatic considerations such as how to store this information and how to incorporate practices of digital ethnography into IRB protocols. Participants will learn from the projects of researchers at the GC who are applying practices of social media scraping and digital ethnography in their work.

    Web Scraping with Python (bs4) (in collaboration with the GC Digital Initiatives)

    April 19th (12:00-1:00pm)

    with Filipa Calado from GC Digital Initiatives

    This workshop explores a Python library that allows users to work with and analyze web-based data. The Beautiful Soup (bs4) Python library enables users to pull data out of web pages made of HTML and XML. They can then use bs4 to search, categorize, and structure HTML and XML documents. Bs4 is relatively lightweight and easy to get up and running, and we will practice scraping popular websites like the New York Times. Though bs4 offers a beginner-friendly approach to web scraping, some basic familiarity with Python and HTML is highly encouraged. NOTE: This workshop is also included as part of GC Digital Initiatives Workshops.
