    My reflections of DS106

    I think DS106 is a really amazing class. Unlike other classes that are very structured, Ds106 allows the student s to decide what assignment they want to do. I really loved this class and I’ve really discovered how creative I really am. My favorite assignment by far  the final project. I’ve never had an assignment ...

    Letter to future Digital storytelling student

    Dear prospective storytelling students First and foremost this class should be at the top of your grocery list for next semester.

    The Mashup Musuem

    Since for my final project I am doing a video mashup, I decided to go visual on this one. I really enjoy art history and I also like playing around with photoshop.

    The world of Mashups

    I think the author’s argument it the article Praxis 2.0: Escaping the edu-travelogue is very inspiring and fresh. I think it’s important for someone to express his or her creativity and I think it still counts as creating even if you are altering someone else’s work. I think that education today is boring and not ...

    What the font? HAL: Tutorial

    I knew this assignment would be kinda of challenge, but that was just more incentive to do it. I had to pick an image that was basic yet one that was recognizable. 2001 A Space Odyssey is one of my favorite movies and I though HAL would be familiar to some people at least. I ...
