Somewhere in the dissertation I should draw attention to all of the digital tools I've used during the dissertation. Actually, this is a section that should sit within the Acknowledgements and Bibliography section.
When I talk about the different tools that are available to students - or perhaps more specifically when I talk about my plans to create original work in the rationale - I would then hyperlink to the different tools I have used myself during the dissertation.
During the dissemination rationale I will discuss the idea of originality and discuss whether we should be acknowledging the digital tools and spaces that can significantly influence how we represent our ideas.
Just a quick thought on what this might include (and perhaps I would group them by their function or by how I've used them): Photoshop, PowerPoint, Word, Weebly, Sound Studio, Thing link, Bloom. Actually, I should stick to the compositional and representational tools and spaces, not stuff like Dropbox.
Do I title, caption or have some explanatory statement alongside images within the text?
Or do I leave the reader the space to critically reflect on the content?
Maybe I come with the approach - reflected in the literature - that if the images are strong enough they need not be accompanied by words.
What I would instead do is perhaps have a hyperlink to the list of images? Perhaps with an identifying number? Or perhaps I reproduce the image smallsize, alongside a caption, organised by section within an appendix or similar.
This way, the reader has the space to draw her own critical conclusions on the image alongside the text, but can seek clarification and 'bibliographical detail' as desired as a later time, without interrupting the flow of the audience experience.
