    Connected Daily Creates


    The Daily Creates I created this week was a haiku for Hope, picking out select words from a page of a book I’m reading, and describing what my heart is like if it would be used for a heart transplant.

    I am connecting these Daily Creates to tell a story …

    Radio Listen


    This week we’re listening to radio shows! Monday night I listened to “Girl Power” and “Rogue Agents.”

    I decided to do my blog post on Rogue Agents. The radio show started off first with personal introductions of each of the members partaking by pretending to be the secret agent they …

    Radio Show Week Two


    So our radio show is done!

    Creating the radio show was much easier than I expected it to be. My group members and I kept a running Google Doc that we shared with our professor. On the Google Doc, we kept a list of our commercials and bumpers we created, …

    So this week my group members and I outlined our ideas for our radio show and got some promotional work done for it. We decided to incorporate the theme of the class, secret agents, by talking about spies, real and fictional. Our show is called “Spies: Reality or Fiction” on …

    DS106 Phone Call

    3 Stars

    This was the last assignment I completed for the 10 stars required in Audio Assignments for the week. This one required me to tell a story, basically pretend I was making a phone call, and add background noise to make it more realistic.

    I decided to incorporate my …

    DS106 Radio Commerical

    3.5 Stars

    This assignment served a couple of purposes the week. I used it first as part of the 10 stars required this week in Audio Assignments and also as a possible commercial for my group’s radio show next week.

    Creating the commercial was really easy. I recorded myself talking …

    Sound Track Mashup

    4 Stars

    For this assignment, I was instructed to take two songs and do a mashup of them. Then I was supposed to compare the differences among the songs such as instruments, changes in volume, etc.

    Instead of only doing two songs, I decided to pick four. These four are …

    Radio Show Promo


    Here is my promo flyer for my group’s radio show! Our show’s episode for the next two weeks is “Spies: Real of Fiction” where we talk about the secret agents we made up, compare them to spies in film, and discuss how spies in movies or tv shows are different …

    Design Blitz


    The design blitz was a fun assignment. I chose to take pictures of the concepts color, typography, dominance, and unity. The design resource page was a lot of help to give a more detailed description of each of the elements! Most of my pictures came from around my house because …

    Destination Post Card

    3 Stars

    This is my last assignment for the Design Assignments this week! This assignment required me to make a postcard. I decided to use a picture of the Scottish Highlands because I went there for Christmas this past year and absolutely loved it.

    I again used Canva for this …

    Contradiction Creation

    2.5 Stars

    This assignment required me to create a “contradiction creation.” I simply had to make a design with an image accompanied by a text that is the opposite of the image. I decided to choose a picture of a landfill with the text “it’s a beautiful world.” I thought …

    Charity Ad

    3.5 Stars

    This assignment required me to create an ad for a charity, made up or real, to encourage someone to donate. I chose the non-profit, Kiva. Kiva isn’t a charity in the traditional way. Kiva is a microloan lending nonprofit that allows someone to loan any amount of …

    Week 5 Summary


    Another week in DS106 is coming to an end! This week was definitely one of the more challenging and time-consuming weeks. I got a late start to it and was a little stressed looking at all the requirements, but I learn a lot. I have never used any sort of …

    Live Tweet Along


    I listened to the DS106 radio show Wednesday and did my live tweet along. It was a cool experience and something I’ve never done before. I did some have technical difficulties trying to hear the story properly. However, it was an interesting topic and it clearly showed how sound effects …

    Create a Place


    My final assignment for this week’s Audio Assignment component was using sounds to create a place. I decided to use sounds to make the listener feel as if they were at a basketball game. The sounds I used were from freesound.org except for the sound of the buzzer going off. …

    Disney Song Mashup


    This assignment was 4 of the 12 stars required from the Audio Assignments this week. It required me to make a mashup of popular Disney songs. The mashup didn’t have to make any logical sense, which mine definitely does not. I chose the song “Reflection” from Mulan (1998), “Evermore” from …

    Radio Bumper?


    While the live tweet along for the DS106 Radio is over for the week, I made a Radio Bumper earlier this week and posted it to my SoundCloud. I have not listened to the radio in years since I usually connect my phone to my car’s Bluetooth to listen to …

    Radio Show Ideas


    I think a cool radio show idea would be to talk about how UMW has changed to developed since we started here as freshman. Maybe new events on campus, dining services, new infrastructure, etc. Maybe even how we have changed now compared to what we were like our first year.…

    Sound Effect Story


    I did it! I successfully used Audacity! I did need some help from the Digital Knowledge Center at UMW, but I did it! My Sound Effect Story isn’t very interesting, but it’s relatable. It is intended to be the story of someone’s morning as they head to work. It begins …

    Moon Graffiti


    After listening to “Moon Graffiti,” it was very interesting to see how moving just sound mixed in with someone talking can give so much detail. There were no pictures in the podcast, but yet there was so much given in these short 16 minutes. The story told in Moon …

    Weekly Summary


    This week was another week full of learning in DS106. I liked this week because of the photography aspect of it. Like last week, I did three daily creates that I posted on Twitter. This week also included a reflection on my current approach to photography, a Photoblitz, learning about …
