    Final Portfolio: How and why is it important for you to tell stories?

    What is a story? In the simplest terms, a story is a report of real or fictitious events. Seems simple enough right? Hardly. Have you ever listened to two different people recount the same event, yet there is a stark contract between these two stories? One person can break away on tangents trying to relay … Continue reading Final Portfolio: How and why is it important for you to tell stories?

    Digital Story Critique

    I came across this Great Big Story video of a 55 generation family tradition. The Sudo family in Japan has been making sake for over 850 years, and has been directly passed down from generation to generation. Economy: I feel that the economy of the story was very well thought out. We receive a … Continue reading Digital Story Critique

    I love this picture of our neighborhood. I did not grow up in the US, so when I saw this image down our street I knew I had to grab a picture. To me, this is a quintessential autumn picture of cozy American life. Hometown, USA #TDC1740 #inte5340 — Kelly Santa Maria (@KelSanMar) October … Continue reading Daily Create 10/13

    More than a single story

    “The consequence of the single story is this, it robs people of their dignity.” As a part of the “normative” American stereotype, I have never had any issue finding stories to which I can relate. White, middle class, nuclear families with 2 kids are a dime a dozen. But are they really?

    Our night skies

    I grew up in a small town where the night stars were visible every clear night. In the town itself street lamps waited on every corner, but hundreds of acres were set aside outside the town for natural forests. No lights were allowed, and the only paths were those made by forest hikers. Now I … Continue reading Our night skies

    When working in an office where everything is the same, you need to express your individuality in some way. For me, one of the ways I express myself is by having an array of colored pens. Colored pens are my downfall #inte5340 #tdc1709

    Visual Networks

    This week’s reflection is over Guy Merchant’s chapter Visual networks: Learning and photosharing The main aspect of this chapter was centered around the photosharing site Flickr. Flickr was once the photosharing site of the internet with it’s original idea of a social site devoted to photosharing. In it’s heyday, Flickr ruled the photosharing business with … Continue reading Visual Networks
