    Final Project!! (Week Fourteen)

    It has been a week! I just when I though my weeks couldn’t get any busier, the final week of classes hit!! Most of my classes had project based finals that were due this week so the good news is I am almost done with classes, bad news is this week was stacked to the […]

    Week Thirteen!

    Well, the time has come. We are officially rolling into the final week of classes. How did that happen!?! Now that we are nearing the end, the DS106 students are hard at work piecing together their final endeavors. For me, I have decided to dive into the the AIDs Epidemic of the 1980’s and the […]

    Week Twelve

    It’s time to buckle up as the craziness has only just begun! This week was a little slower in my academic world, which was much appreciated – especially as we move into the final weeks of classes (SAY WHAT!?!)! I can’t believe our semester is almost over. It has been quite possibly the craziest one […]

    More Thoughts!

    I can’t believe we are already talking about the final project! I feel like we just started not too long ago. Suffice to say it’s been an interesting semester! In looking ahead I am still fumbling around with ideas, but I still like the two I had last time focusing on a blend of modern […]

    Week Eleven

    It’s been another long week with online classes and quarantined lifestyle!! Luckily, this week I was able to devote Friday to creating DS106 videos and I actually had a really good time! I continued with the individual Video Bank Assignments. I really wanted to learn more about tools within iMovie and GarageBand that could aid […]

    Daily Creates Connection

    This week our Daily Creates had a bit of an extra challenge attached to it – we needed to create a connection between all three – perhaps a story. My first daily create was Wednesday, which has us create a Holi inspired art design using a Google Easter egg (it is actually a fun little […]

    Week Eight

    *Warning Longer Post, my Apologies!* Welp, this has been a week! 😂 Coming off of Spring Break, a time change, and now classes moving to online. It’s been odd that’s for sure! It’s a little more comforting to know that everyone seems to be in the same boat though. Sterling was able to lock down […]

    It’s radio week!! Lots of fun things are happening in the ds106 world. This week Kaitlyn and I joined forces with Allison and Sterling to create our radio show group. So far we’ve nailed down our topic, brainstormed information to talk about, and set up a time to meet and record. Starting out our first […]

    Around the World….

    Welcome to our radio show!! I am super excited to explore some cool (and very different) cultures and how they experienced the 1980’s. For my promo, I utilized photoshop and Canva. I have come to love Canva!! There is so much you can do on it and can personalize every detail. Tried a few different […]

    Week Six!

    Week six is now done! This week was ‘design week.’ It was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed being able to continue to work with expanding my familiarity with Photoshop for my Assignment Back projects. I learned a lot about graphic design, which was also a lot of fun. It reminded me of my […]

    Graphic Design

    When I first read the Chip Kidd piece I was reminded of my high school Humanities course and where we talked extensively about style and design, especially in regards to art. We even took a trip to the Virginia Fine Arts Museum (if you haven’t been, I highly recommend!). I quick realized what Professor Bond […]

    This week we were asked to complete a DesignBlitz were we took pictures of different design concepts we found in our everyday lives. I decided to complete the challenge in non other than Target (where I spend way too much time 😂). It didn’t take much time to see design concepts all around. Color Minimalism/Use […]
