    ESTP Wanted Poster – Assignment Bank – Week 7

    For this week’s DS106 Assignment Bank assignment, I chose to create a Wanted Poster in the style of the Wild, Wild, West. My chosen story theme is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Each MBTI type has their own strengths and weaknesses. I chose the Robinhood (ESTP) character because he is a thief, but with good intentions. A classic ESTP, Robinhood is…

    ESFP Word Cloud – Assignment Bank – Week 6

      This week’s assignment was to use a site like or similar to create a word cloud.

    Finding Who? – Design Assignment Bank – Week 5

    This week’s mashup assignment was to take elements from multiple movie posters and mash them up into one. Change anything – the caption, the title, the main image, etc. Also, make it seem like it could be a real movie.

I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone could figure out the word I chose to spell. To create this video, I used an iPhone 6 to record the video and edited it with iMovie.…

I wanted to do this assignment because this is a reinactment of a real call that was made to the police not too long ago. I created this recording in GarageBand.

    Epic Proposal – Story Critique #1

    For this critique, I used Jason Ohler’s assessment traits. I focused three traits: Story Project planning Originality, voice, creativity I evaluated the story and the writing of the story. How well did the story work? Is it is complete and understandable? I looked at the level of project planning. Is there evidence of solid planning – story maps, scripts, storyboards? Finally, I focused on…

    Three Ways to Happiness

    My first Daily Create for ds106 is a collage of things that make me happy. I was extatic to discover that you can now add Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life to your Netflix list and it will show up when it becomes available. I can hardly wait! I feel a Gilmore Girls marathon coming on! I recently had…
