    DS106: Complete


    Who would have thought we’d finally reach the end of the road.

    The journey here in ds106 has been long, but informative, insightful, and indescribable. I have learned far more than I could have ever mustered up at the beginning of the semester. From video to audio, design, photography, and …

    Wow, just one more week left here in ds106! It’s crazy to look back and see all that I have accomplished and learned within this thrilling and liberating semester.

    Mission 12: Complete


    Closer and closer to the end we come!

    This week was all about mashups and remixes. Probably like everyone else I am familiar with the two, however something I learned this week was the true distinction between the two. For anyone who is curious at what the difference is… a …

    Need help?


    Ever go to work on something and feel like you can’t seem to understand how to complete it? Well don’t worry, you’re not the only one. Certainly here in ds 106 we all have been introduced to assignments that consist of various aspects such as audio, design, video, images, etc. …

    Final Mission


    Since this week is about mashups and remixes, so it’s only fitting that we have to put together a blog post about a potential final mission mashup. Last week in my blog post I listed off three ideas that I believed would be good final mission ideas. The thought of …

    Where’s Waldo?


    My second and last remix assignment was one that involved the famous “where’s waldo”?

    Like my last remix assignment I wanted to go back in and remix an assignment I have already participated in. This in my opinion is easier than creating a new assignment and remixing it at the …

    Did someone say karaoke?


    For my final mashup assignment this week I decided to do another 5 star assignment. I believe partaking in two 5 star assignments, ultimately getting me to the overall assigned 10, makes it easier on myself. I rather challenge myself with higher star assignments because it helps build my creativity …

    Oh the places…


    This week is all about mashups and remixes so I went ahead and decided to try one of my first remixes. I actually chose to remix one of my previous assignments that I partook in earlier this semester. Actually, it was one of my first one’s I did.

    The assignment …

    The Text


    This week is all about mashups and remixes. Prior to this week I never really knew the difference between the two and typically linked them together. Since reading our weekly assignment post I now know the difference between a mashup and a remix.

    The assignment page stated that a remix …

    Mission 11: Complete


    Week 11 is complete and I can’t help but think about how close we are to the end of the semester. It’s hard to imagine what this past couple of months would have been like without ds106.

    Unlike last week this week was much more relaxed for me. I am …

    Getting There


    We did it, we finished filming! Our video show “Girl Power” is almost done and I couldn’t be more excited.

    Filming today was a breeze, my group mates and I got together and began filming away. Like I mentioned earlier we utilized the outline we created for our show and …

    Making Progress


    Today’s the day, aka filming day!

    My group has been planning our video out for the past week now and today we are finally going to be getting into action. With an outline put together, we have the basis for what we want to discuss and do in our video …

    Did someone say mission?


    As secret agents we’ve encountered numerous missions since our time here in ds106. Now as the semester is nearing an end, am I seeing one last mission in our future?

    A couple ideas come to mind for a potential last mission…

    One idea that I have is that our secret …

    Mission 10: Complete


    Another week has come to an end and I feel like I am finally getting the hang of this whole video thing. This week specifically was dedicated to video and how filming techniques really create stories. We’ve previously looked at design, photography, audio, etc and sought to comprehend how that …

    Video Show Plan


    This week we were given the option of two video assignments; one option consisted of working individually in order to complete 10 stars of video assignments, while the other option is to work in groups similar to your radio show and create a video show.

    So with that Christiana Meyers, …

    The Interview


    The next video assignment assigned this week was known as the interview. This assignment asked that students take recordings of individuals asking questions that were provided for us and create a video that consists of the interviewee and the interviewer having a conversation.

    I read a couple individuals blog posts …

    An Incredible Essay


    This week is all about video, specifically analyzing cinematic camerawork and how it brings everything together. Since we have been looking at numerous aspects such as color, design, photos, audio, etc. throughout this course I was particularly excited to explore a different aspect of storytelling such as video.

    Prior to …

    Mission 9: Complete


    Another busy week completed here in digital storytelling 106. Since turning in our radio show projects last week, this week came in full force with a heavy, but exciting work load. Our main focus this week was exploring the web and the storytelling that’s told within it. In order to …

    Create and Connect


    Like usual we had to participate in three daily creates this week. However, that being said we then needed to find a way to connect them together. The three creates I did were; heart transplant, top trumps, and secret agent selfie.

    If someone were to receive my heart they'd be …

    Take Two


    This week we were asked to revise one 3, 4, or 5 star assignment we have created in a previous week. Once picked we needed to revise, improve, or remix it in so way shape or form.

    With that I spent some time looking back at all of the assignments …

    Remixing The Web


    This week has been all about the web! Between participating in web assignments and exploring how storytelling can be told through web I have had the opportunity to partake in some pretty cool assignments.

    One assignment in particular that we were asked to do this week was called web storytelling. …

    This evening I had the pleasure of tuning into ds106 radio to listen to some of my classmates very own radio shows they created from the previous two weeks. I was super excited to listen in because everyones show’s had very different ideas and themes so with that I was …

    Another week down and a radio show complete!

    vvSurprisingly this was the first week of ds 106 where I felt I wasn’t engulfed with numerous projects or work. This week was really dedicated to finishing our radio shows and further producing content to fill it. Before diving into …

    Work in Progress
