    Es hora de dejar de criticar a los alumnos


    Como padres o profesores en muchas ocasiones nos sentimos tentados a criticar a los alumnos. Lo hacemos con la mejor de las intenciones. Queremos que crezcan, que sean mejores y que tengan éxito en la vida. Pero la crítica no siempre es la mejor manera de conseguirlo. De hecho, es …

    Listening to & Learning Design


    Scher and Carson both made me question my definition of design. Some of the “designs” that they showed seemed like everyday things to me.

    When looking at this image from Scher’s talk, I simply saw a t-shirt. Of course, I knew that shirts have to be created, but I had …

    Parliament in the Mist


    February 20, 2018. One thing I like about Ottawa is driving by the Parliament Buildings just in the course of an everyday day. Here I’m driving over the Alexandra Bridge after a workshop in Gatineau and traffic was slow enough (ie., stopped) to allow me to take this photo of…

    A Son Elaborates and Clarifies


    Dad’s last post encapsulates a lot of what I loved listening to while he was doing all of that research.

    First, it included a lot of the crazy, insane-seeming, ultra-detail-oriented fine-tooth-comb gumshoeing that dad always seemed so good at. Sorting through handwritten census records to find a name that had …

    Adding Authentication to YelpCamp


    This week I worked on adding authentication to the YelpCamp app I was building through the bootcamp tutorials. I used the npms express-session, passport, passport-local, and passport-local-mongoose. The first I did was call the npms and configure passport so that it ran properly on the app. This included making the …

    New York City: June 18, 2058


    Week 3: Tell it/Tweet it

    Crystalline frost crawled across the landscape like an animated summoning from some Ancient Ice Demon, engulfing trees, creeping up buildings, glossing over puddles and fountains, and turning them solid. I watched from my perch on the ninth floor of my apartment building the ice sheet …

    Alex in his natural habitat


    I decided to create Alex in his natural/happiest place. Wouldn’t you like him to help you out at a local blockbuster? He shouldn’t be this buff but I got him as skinny as possible without it looking weird.

    Winston’s Character Word Cloud


    For this assignment I had a lot of fun! I took time and thought of things and words that I felt best represented my character. I had to think hard about my character’s past, present, and future when creating this word cloud! I actually used the website called Word It …

    RIP HUMAN RACE: Contradiction Creation


    For this assignment I had to create a graphic that was designed for a certain feeling or theme. For my graphics (I made 3) I decided I wanted it to kind of have a “End of the world propaganda” theme. I created these graphics to be ironic, like the assignment …

    That Soft Rain Actually Won’t Be Here For A While So


    Alternative Ending: There will Come Soft Rain, Ray Bradbury, 1950

    Harry lurched forward, gasping as he came to. The image of a family’s white paint shadow silhouettes starkly contrasting against the charred wall in the middle of a wasteland was all he could see. He blinked his eyes, clutching his …

    Apocalyptic Writing That Got All Up In The Feels


    Week 3: Short Story Readings



    Finis, Frank Lillie Pollock, 1906


    Well that was terrifying. This is one Apocalyptic concept that I had never originally considered before. At the beginning, I had forgotten the Apocalyptic element of the narrative – I too was excited about the concept of …

    I never really thought about memes being art but now looking into it an being able to create my first meme. It definitely is a way to express feelings or thought. I would definitely say memes and even gifs are still a form of art.

    Project Ideas


    While looking into the DS106 site one of the assignments I found interesting is a 2-3 minute clip of your favorite actor mashed together. From their earliest movies to some more recent movies. You would have to explain why you choose this actor, and how they have developed over the …
