    Disneyland and Storytelling

    Let me just put this out there and let everyone know once and for all that I am a total Disneyland nut.  And while I am not ashamed of this fact, I will also be one of the first to say that I know the reasoning behind this is deeply psychological.  Disneyland holds a great ...

    Integrating Open Resources into the Clasroom

    This week for EDUC 206, we were assigned the task of integrating copyright free or open resources into one of our classes.  The class that I decided upon was my Film Studies class.  Right now in the class, I do not use a text book.  Film Studies text books can be dense and expensive, and ...

    My work thus far

    It’s tough to write about my own work that I’ve created in this class, because I’ve mostly been blown away by the other work that I have seen in the class.  It is truly great to see so many people putting their time into often non-required material.  I think we are all here to develop ...

    Course Favorites Thus Far

    DS106 has gone in waves for me and I am still not sure what it is.  In the beginning of the class, I remember stressing out over my first story — I was still in the mindset of I needed to do a project as outlined and I need to do it to impress other ...

    The Post Post Show – Episode 4

    Here’s the new episode of the Post Post Show.  I’m not sure what time it airs, but I just need to put it up for organizational sakes. I’m really growing to love this process of creating these shows.  Just so you know, I create all of my shows in Garageband — which is the reason ...

    Dailyshoot Feb 10th “Unusual Point of View”

    Dailyshoot Feb 10th "Unusual Point of View", originally uploaded by robnyland. Today I was tasked with creating a photograph with an unusual point of view. I always wanted to try the Fridge shot that you see in movies, unfortunately, it doesn’t translate as well into a still image. Have fun figuring out all of the ...

    Minimalist Poster: Primer

    If any of you have not seen the movie Primer you really need to get on Netflix right now and watch it.  For the design project, I decided to do the minimalist Movie poster.  I did the poster in illustrator, because I thought it would be relatively easy to build a box, but I spent ...

    Dailyshoot Feb 6th “Electical Plug”

    Dailyshoot Feb 6th "Electical Plug", originally uploaded by robnyland. Today’s challenge was to take an artistic photo of an electric plug. Once again my 50mm came in handy. The shallow depth of field gives it an almost tilt-shift like quality.

    The Post Post Show — Episode 2

    Even episode 2 of the Post Post show already aired on ds106 radio.  I have not as yet put up the set list.  Overall, I didn’t love episode 2 as much as episode 1.  But the process of creation is really fantastic.  Once again, I pulled most of my samples from  The music tracklist ...

    Howard Gardner and Incorporating Multiple Intelligences

    Howard Gardner by The Aspen Institute A few weeks ago in my Teaching and Facilitating Learning class at Lake Washington Technical College, we discussed the work of Howard Gardner.   Gardner is a Harvard professor whose research work focused on the theory of multiple intelligences.  In the classroom, this translates into the fact that we must ...

    Daily Shoot 1-31 "Repetition", originally uploaded by robnyland. For the next two weeks in ds106, we are going to participate in a daily shoot activity. While I have actually been following @dailyshoot for a while, I have not yet participated yet. That’s what I love about classes — even though I may not be getting ...

    The Post Post Show

    So I just finished my first half hour set for DS 106 radio.  I love what the radio project has become, but I think about it way too much and probably devote too much time to thinking about what kind of things I can devise for it.  So, I’m telling myself that after this, I ...

    Bumpers Made for ds106 radio

    It’s been a little hard to do the actual work for ds106 because all I want to do is create bumpers and programs for the ds106 radio station.  Anyway, here is a bumper that I created, incorporating some good ol’ Freaks and Geeks into it. Bu...

    After completing (maybe skimming a bit) this weeks readings for ds106, one of the things that popped out to me most in terms of what defines web 2.0 is the idea of microcontent.  The matter and substance of web 2.0 is small chunks of information, that we knowingly scatter across the web in the form ...

    Wading Through the cPanel

    When I started this class and bought some additional commodity web-hosting one of my projects was to redirect the content from a previous now-defunct mp3 blog/podcast —  That site was an experiment for my 26 year old self who was obsessed with indie-music and hipsterdom and at the time mp3 blogging seemed to be ...

    DS 106 Assignment #1: 30 second story

    Right now I am taking Jim Groom’s open course DS106- Digital Storytelling.  I am excited for the challenges that the course will offer me.  Oftentimes as a teacher I feel hypocritical for making my students create digital media around certain parameters while I feel like I don’t rise to the same challenge.  Our assignment this ...
