    LAST Weekly Summary

    For this project, I chose to focus on The Beast losing his powers and how he moved on with his life. We don’t normally see superheroes as everyday people, so I thought this was a cool perspective to take. I had decided to use audio, design, and video to put together this story (as outlined in […]

    Saving The Beast, Part 2

    The Beast realized his powers were gone. He documented when he first realized his powers no longer existed and his feelings about becoming a “normal” kid in a journal entry titled Is this the end?   Flash forward ten years and The Beast is now “just” a man campaigning against bullying. He revealed his alter […]

    Anti-Bullying Campaign

    After he lost his powers, The Beast grew up to become an anti-bullying advocate and used his platform as a former superhero to spread the message of “everyone can do something to prevent bullying.” This “poster” was created to be shared across social media as a message from The Beast. the tagline was intentionally kept […]

    Is this the end?

    Dear Journal,   The other day at school I overheard someone talking about how they were shoved up against the lockers, so I planned on being there at the same time the next day. I showed up to confront the bullies expecting everything to be normal. But when I had to step up to the […]

    When reflecting on this course and thinking of the advice I would give to future ds 106ers, I think it would come down to time management. Assignments may seem simple when you first read them, but once you start them, issues begin to develop and the assignment can become way more time consuming than you […]

    Weekly Summary: Week Twelve

    This week I was tasked with completing 12 stars of MashUp assignments. So, first up for 4.5 stars was the “Close Up” assignment that challenged me to take a close up picture of someone and put it on a new background. Check out the new Mt. Rushmore (renamed to Eastrush) in my blog post Eastrush. […]

    Weekly Summary: Week Nine

    For my choice of assignments this week I chose “Photo Through Different Lenses” where I took an everyday object, like a pen, and photographed it in unique ways. I documented my process in A pen is a pen, unless…. This week I also completed six stars of web assignments. I started with making a “Finsta” for […]

    Holiday MashUp

    For my next mashup assignment I created a “Holiday MashUp.” My three holidays I chose were Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day. Christmas is my absolute most favorite holiday. EVER. I’m so excited to start decorating, but haven’t been able to start yes because I’ve been so busy with school! I also like Easter and Independence […]

    Pictionary 2.0

    For one of my web assignments I chose the assignments “Google Draw Something.” I had never heard of this before and it was fun! My 10 year old watched me complete this and was eager to try himself! For some reason I couldn’t share my results on twitter, so I took a screen shot of […]

    Final Crisis

    I’m a little lost as to what we should do for our final project. When I think of superheroes, I think of DC Comics versus Marvel. Maybe we could divide the class superheroes into two different superhero “clubs” and have them face the same villain or disaster. Then we could see which group of superheroes […]

    Summary: Week 11

    This week was more fun than last week. I enjoyed putting my videos together and it came easier to me than it did last week. This week’s challenge was time management. As the semester progresses I find it difficult to remember this course until mid-week then I scramble to complete everything whereas in the beginning […]

    Dear Amanda

    For one of my assignment bank assignments this week I chose to complete “Sixteen Year Old Me” where I gave advice to the 16 year old me. I did modify the assignment somewhat by choosing to give advice to my 17 year old self. That year in my life was pivotal and  I struggled to find […]

    Summary: Week 10

    Holy moly! What a week! This week was super busy for ds106 assignments. But, one must carry on…and that we did.   First up, the daily creates! I always forget about these until the last 48 hours. Luckily, only two were required this week!   @ds106dc #tdc2115 I’m the worst drawer I know…so I focused […]

    I’ll Have Eight Egg Whites

    For my life hack video I chose to show how you can quickly and easily separate an egg yolk from the egg white. I was inspired by my boyfriend’s recent request for egg whites and the grocery budget. Egg whites in a carton are much more expensive than whole eggs, so I now use this […]

    Your move, chief

    The first task this week was to do a video essay of a scene of my choice. One of my favorite movies is “Good Will Hunting,” so I decided to roll with this option. In the movie Robin Williams plays a psychologist who is trying to help a brilliant young man (Matt Damon) who is […]

    Weekly Summary: Week 8

    This week has proved to be a challenge. I think the biggest challenge was trying to coordinate, collaborate, and work with a few people I didn’t know, all online. For the most part this worked great. We cut our deadline pretty close, but the final product turned out pretty good. The SCAR Radio show on […]

    Radio Show, Part 2

    During this final week the radio show has proved to be a little challenging. It was difficult to get everyone on the same page because it took a few days to get everyone on the same page. That being said, our group came up with some great segments. It was great being able to collaborate […]

    Radio Show: Week One

    This week’s planning of the radio show was kicked off on Tuesday, when I sent an e-mail to the group. Ashley responded with a Google doc link to be used for collaborating and brainstorming. On Wednesday morning I went into the Google doc and started putting together the ideas from the team mates into an outline […]
