    This assignment asked that I “create a supercut montage of overused dialogue, themes, motifs, filmmaking techniques, etc. for a particular character, tv show, film, and/or public figure.”

    The first thing I thought of was Obama’s repetition of “let me be clear,” but it turns out that TIME magazine and the …

    Full Metal Jacket


    For this assignment you create a misleading T.V. guide synopsis of a movie or show that uses actual facts to distort the story.  I chose the film Full Metal Jacket and make it sound almost patriotic or noble in its portrayal of Marine life.  I think Stanley Kubrick had different …

    Six Word Memoir



     “As an autobiographical challenge, the six-word limitation forces us to pinpoint who we are and what matters most – at least in the moment. The constraint fuels rather than limits our creativity.”

    -Larry Smith

    For the Six Word Memoir Assignment, you have to think through how you would …

    For this assignment, you are asked to create a recipe using haiku.

    “Write an entire recipe only in haiku. Stick to the 5/7/5 syllable pattern as much as possible, but don’t leave out any key instructions!”

    Illustrated Lyrics Post


    I loved seeing different photos and getting to choose what lyrics I wanted to put on it because so many people use lyrics already written to compare and express themselves through. I loved doing this assignment because yes I am one of those people who listens to music and each …

    Shakespearean Cats


    I chose the Shakespearean LOLcat assignment where you combine a cat picture with an appropriate Shakespeare quote.  Because I don’t particularly like cats, I chose a Shakespeare quote with a negative connotation and found a picture by searching for “mean cats” on Google images.  I then added text to the …

    Blog Post #10 – Digital Teacher Identity


    I think the first step in establishing my credible online identity as a teacher is to evaluate my facebook page, and likely make a new one. I made facebook when it first came out and used it often like many from my generation, but I fell off of it quickly. …

    Blog Post #9 – Reading and Writing Online


    Here is a trajectory of what a typical 3-4 page research paper looks to me.

    What’s irritating in this whole process for me is my inability to focus on a task. I have the uncanny, and terrible trait to procrastinate for as long as I can humanly get away with. …

    Blog Post #8 – Transmedia Franchise


    For my discussion of a transmedia franchise, I chose Star Wars, a franchise I am very familiar with.

    Blog Post #7 – DS106 Assignment C


    For the third ds106 assignment I did the Animated 2600 assignment under the gif category. It appealed to me because of how simply ridiculous older games look and seeing how far we’ve progressed in terms of what we can animate with machinery, and it’s a sort of homage to an …

    For my last ds106 post, I chose the visual assignment, Post Secret. The task is not to write a secret at all, but to write a dream or aspiration on a post-it note– in my case, I used flower post-its– and take a picture. I had two ideas for …
