  15. 15. Back to digital stories! #DS106 and similar can build digital literacy and confidence online. I can learn flexibly how and when I want. It has been challenging learning new technology. It has stretched my thinking. I have sometimes felt an outsider. I get more professional contacts through my blog than I do my work website. Since 2013 my blog has improved my writing and confidence in my writing! In my two previous applications for funding, I’ve had to include a promotional video! DS106 enabled me to do this. I’ve developed an interest in photography. Particularly trees. I’ve made Radio Shows. I built the ‘National Teaching Fellow’ blog which now reaches around the world. My open education project blogs and YouTube channel have exceeded a million views.
