My name is Caitlin I am a mother of four aged 6-18 from Northern NSW who is very new to this area of study having previously concentrated both undergraduate and postgraduate awards on Political Science and Peace Studies. I am hoping to broaden my horizons and career prospects and work in Academic Libraries or archives.
I am not normally part of the digital world and have no facebook, twitter, instagram or a smart phone. So far the delivery of this unit is proving a little challenging. I even managed to introduce my self initally anonymously.
I am particulalry interested in the way changes to technology effects information management and preservation, and can both broaden and restrict our participation in society whether we are aware or not.
I don’t think I have a super power although I have been described as “infuriatingly optimistic” and I am good with chaos. I have never really wanted a super power although would love more time and to travel through Europe with my kids so perhaps flight would be useful. I also don’t drive and walk every where including school, music lessons, work and sport with the kids so perhaps walking is my super power.
