Matthew Dunn's 'Digital Media' keynote address will be live-streamed
A presentation from digital media guru Matthew Dunn, co-founder of Say It Visually, will keynote Western Washington University’s forthcoming event, “Digital Media: The Future is N.O.W.” on April 11 at the PAC.
Dunn’s presentation will be at 4 p.m. on the PAC Mainstage, and is free and open to the public. His keynote address will also be live-streamed on Western's Ustream channel, http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wwu-live-events1.
Faculty are encouraged to attend and bring their students or encourage them to attend as well; Dunn's insights into how we all use digital communication, social media, and digital storytelling as ways of getting messages across various media are applicable to almost any field of study.
Dunn’s company, Say It Visually!, explains complex topics with compelling visual stories. Launched in 2008, the company is already the world’s largest creator of private-label explanatory media. Dunn, a former CIO at Microsoft, will lead a presentation and discussion on visual literacy for the new millennium.
