    Push or Pull- You choose!


    Well I choose Pull! In our reading this week about social learning it describes how the traditional education system is considered the “push” and the “pull” refers to informal, participatory learning that has the learning pulling up their own learning material and sources. I don’t want to be part of …

    The Animal of My Eye


    To say that I am obsessed with my dog is probably an understatement. I would take him with me everywhere I went if I could. His first trip was at three months old. He had broken his leg two days before but made the drive to Texas with me. The …

    Week 5 Reflection


    Well I decided to take 3 days off from school this week since we had family in town. I got to take a trip to Wyoming, and hike up a waterfall, but it made for a cramped week of work.

    Overall I enjoyed this week of work. Learning about participatory …

    Schwarzenegger And Stallone-Mashup


    MashUp was the name of the game this week and to go along with our reading and creating a participatory learning environment I enlisted the help of my husband. When I say this Mashup I immediately thought of my husband and his affinity for movies. So he helped me come …

    Thinking about thinking- week 4


    This week I have lacked serious motivation! This week I feel like I just checked off tasks and didn’t put a lot of work into my creations. Life got in the way this week with a visitor for 9 days who left Wednesday and trying to get everything done before …

    Meme Catastrophy


    When looking for a digital story to critique this week I wanted to try hard to stay away from videos because that is how I have stereotyped digital stories. I am going to try to take my new learning and step out of my comfort zone to find a different …

    Blogging- A new Literacy


    This week’s reading “Academic Blogging as a New Literacy” was interesting and I think directly tied to the work we are doing in ILT5340. I gained some familiarity with some terms such as autoethnographic and hypertext.Our blogs are all hypertexts because we link to other material and each post is …

    This has been a rough week for technology. First hypothesis had a bug and then Google Chrome decided to quit connecting to the internet. Then I tried to annotate with internet explorer and that was a fail. SO for this week I am currently short one story critique annotation I …

    Responding to Reading-week 3


    DIY! This week’s reading was all about the DIY culture and how it started as a home improvement term for people who didn’t want to pay high dollar to have something done around the house. This concept applied to new media is new for more but has started to make …

    Critiquing? Yes, we are! -Animal Rights


    As I watched this Digital story about animal rights I was questioning, “why?”

    Why these images? Why this music? Why so graphic? Why no dialogue?

    I’m sure the graphic part is to evoke some emotions and get people thinking about the things that happen to animals when they are slaughtered …

    Free Abused Animals


    That was a challenge but also a learning experience. For this week we were assigned a DS106 Audio Assignment and I chose FlickrSounds. I didn’t think this would be too hard but I did get stumped at one point.

    The assignment says:

    This is a simple mashup that searches …

    This week’s reading was yet again robust but easier to process with the use of hypothesis annotation. The chapter this week revolved around remixing and what all is a part of remixing in the sense of new literacies. Overall, the chapter made me think about the ways that we are …

    Dare to Dream



    Hmm… A visual bucket list, I think I can manage that. I was skimming through the DS106 assignment bank and came across the Bucket List assignment. I decide that this seemed simple enough for my first DS106 creation. So, I took it’s suggestion and hopped on over to Be
