    Making Toast- And other Creative Adventures


    Creativity is an illusive idea, most commonly it is thought of as something that you have or you don’t.  However, as humans, we all have the inate ability to learn and conceive, remember and imagine.  These qualities all make up a creative mind, it’s simply a matter of perspective.

    After …

    Final Reflection and Portfolio for INTE 5340



    Mother Natures cure for stress, the natural Zen Garden. I could read stories by this all day long!

    When I reflect back over this course it does feel like a blur. Perhaps, this is due to the fact that I had to take a break in order to complete …

    Week 7: Reflective Summary


    The content of this week was important, relevant, and slightly disturbing. The realization that we have so far to go when it comes to having real conversations around privilege, power, and whiteness is unnerving. The readings brought me back to a time where my job was to learn, discuss, challenge, …

    Week 7: Digital Story Telling Critique


    I wanted to come back to my original inspiration for choosing my theme for this course, Dr. Brene Brown. I was delighted when I found this short animated film that overlays one of her talks.

    What types of “involvement” – and by the author/creator(s), participant(s), and/or audience – are…

    Reading Response: Week 7


    I have always been interested in narrative and the power of telling a story. Storytelling has passed down family tales, folklore, connection, and meaning making. There is also great responsibility in the stories we tell the public and ourselves. As Kress asserts, “The world told is different from the world …

    Week 6 Reflective Summary: Getting Back Into the Flow


    Returning to the course a year after starting my work brought a mixed bag of challenges. Taking time to figure out where I left off required relearning some of the simple things like posting in WordPress, creating links, and remembering the flow of the course were required. When I opened …

    Week Six: Reading Response


    Calibrate your voice. This just represents the “push” mentality of creating spaces for learning. “We,” those who have power will give you what you need in order to learn and “we” will attempt to control what is allowed into a space. Calibrate your voice… this just instantly did not sit …

    Learning to Rise Again


    The journey began a year ago. I signed up to take INTE 5340 and chose the focal theme of vulnerability. I did not know it would become a person theme or that my life was about to be broken open- wide open.

    Brene Brown wrote, “Vulnerability sounds like truth and …

    Webinar 101: Hosting and Posting


    Hi All,

    For my masters class on hosting live events we were asked to host two webinars.  The first would be a short, 15 minute webinar where we tried hosting out for a change.  You can view my webinar here!

    CARP in design


    If you’ve ever done a presentation you have been exposed to the principles of CARP-Contrast, Alignment, Repetition and Proximity.  These keep whatever you are presenting organized and easy to read.

    Contrast- relative size or color to convey meaning or importance

    Alignment- keeping text, corners or grids on the same plane…

    The Rebellion Takes Action

    Week 207 (countdown) San Francisco, Rebel Alliance, Jan. 21, 2017

    I’m opposed to the labels, name-calling and emotional arrows. I’ve been countering the president’s assault on my values with constructive activism. This is mainly a blog about action and following my personal quest for good conscience actions.

    My media hole …

    Today I March


    I’m lazy. I don’t want to fight. But if I don’t fight, then someone else is working to remold my reality.

    I need to stand up to injustice and distinguish what’s not right. I might not be able to change someone else’s behavior, but I can try to have a …

    Privacy in Social Media


    I know that I am more on the conservative side of public information and privacy.  I know, from personal experience doing my fair share of investigating other people via social media, that a lot can be found on websites that people don’t realize are out there.

    My personal pages have …

    Enhanced Reality


    True innovation is rarely the result of new technology. No, true innovation comes from an insightful application of new technology.

    This is the reality facing innovators in augmented reality (AR).

    Mixed-reality technologies could have as great an impact on how we operate within society as social media had, perhaps even …

    Tribes- Your true fans


    My mom used to tell me a story about a professor she had in college.  He told his class that it was proven that college students only retain about 80% of the material taught in his class, so he said, I will be teaching 120% of the material so that …

    What’s up 2


    My second hot topic I from my personal facebook.  I have to say, I find it REALLY creepy that I always have ads for things I have done or previously purchased.  I know that there is something to do with “cookies” and search history- but I swear sometimes facebook reads …

    What’s Up 1


    Hello World!

    Please excuse my absence, my life has dissolved into utter chaos- aka the school year began and I still feel like I’m trying to catch up.  I’m taking my master’s classes, taking Gifted Courses, teaching full time and piloting a new co-teaching program while managing 47 kids!  It’s …

    Final Reflection


    First of all, may I start with the fact that it is Sunday night and I am filled with a plethora of emotions!  My boyfriend was SUPPOSED to be home tonight, he travels for work.  He had a plane scheduled and then had to cancel it for what looks like …

    Final Project for INTE 5680


    My final project is a series of videos that goes with Jacqui Zaralban’s videos, as we are co teaching this coming year.

    These videos are meant to be fun introductions to the things that we plan to cover in the first week of school.  We will give a brief introduction …

    Final Reflections on ILT5340


    My final reflections on the summer ILT5340 Digital Storytelling course taught by Professor Remi Holden.

    Final Reflection and Portfolio


    I have had some serious fun in this course. For my final portfolio, I used MS Office Mix to create a narrated video. Hopefully, it’s not too long but contains some of my thinking from a journal I kept during the summer to help me organize my thoughts week by …
