For the final blog post, I am going to listen 3 different student’s interview. It is interesting to listen those interviews, and I learn a lot of stuff after listening the interviews.
The first audio story that I listened was made by Jenna Walker. In her audio, she interviewed her grandma about the experience of using typewriter, hand write, and type on computer. Jenna’s grandma is big on writing and reading, and she mentioned that she is currently in a writing class. She had experience on using typewrite and computer. As she mentioned, she prefer to type on computer rather that to type on typewrite, because computer can automatically find out the spelling mistake and grammar mistake. However, you need to go back and check the typing paragraph when you type on typewrite. It is a good example of oral history. Jenna’s grandma showed her personal experience on using different typing tools orally.
The second audio story that I listened was made by Ashley Cole. In her audio, she interviewed her father about the photo development in his experience. Ashley father mentioned a car phone, payphone, and cell phone in this interview. As her father mentioned that he needed to check his messages every time when he used payphone and this was the only way to communicate with others with payphone at that time. When the cell phone showed up, communication became easier. He can use cell phone to send a message of phone call when he needed. It is a good example of oral history. Ashley’s father shared his personal experience on using different phones orally.
The third audio story that I listened was made by Liz Kurtz. In her audio, she interviewed her father about digital influence on his architect career. Liz’s father mentions computer, AutoCAD and Revit in this video. He used hand drawing for architect at high school and college. However, he mostly used digital such as AutoCAD for architect when he got his first job. He mentioned that it was convenient to use digital to share and make architect in his career. It is a good example of oral history. Liz’s father shared his personal different experience on using computer to make architect and drawing architect on paper.
