    Audio Assignment #2 Otis Remix Tutorial


    So I decided to make my own rap song to one of my favorite songs Otis by Jay-Z and Kanye West. I thought that this task would be extremely difficult to complete; however, it was quite simple. The fact that I had a MacBook made this task even more simple …

    Make Your Own Ringtone


    In order to create my ringtone, I used a program called Soundations. Find this free program at soundation.com. The program gives options to utilize a free program, but you can also buy the Premium or Power package which allows for more storage and additional music selections.

    It didn’t take …

    Remix #2 (Audio): Jingle Jangle


    I have to admit, I love mixing audio into a video file.  It’s one of my favorite things to do.  Finding the perfect song that matches the mood of an image – purely delicious.  That’s why this project challenged me to tell my tale with just my voice and music.  …

    Twitter Thoughts


    I have never been a proponent of Twitter, and only created an account under extreme duress from my professor. Okay, so maybe I am exaggerating a bit, but I really could care less about having a Twitter account. So when I read our assignment to tweet at least once a …

    So this assignment was taken from DS106. This is one of four of my remix assignments on a visual, audio, and film. The assignment is to find an article and blackout the words, and the words remaining (non-blackout words) will read a poem, short s tory, or just whatever.

    A Little Birdie Named Twitter


    Twitter has been such an influential tool for social and media purposes. Many of our students are in the know about the ins and outs of Twitter, while we are still in hesitation and confusion about the purpose or just simple pondering about what to write in that square box. …

    Remix #1: Time of Day from My Window


    My New Appreciation for Photo Editors
    I’m not going to lie…When asked to edit an image in Pixlr or Photoshop, I was a little nervous. I have never done anything but a collage. In fact, the biggest difficulty I encountered while trying to complete this task was figuring out how …

    Remix #1 Creep on a Movie Scene


    For my first remix assignment I thought I’d do a little movie creeping. I really enjoy many movies and found myself at a crossroad when selecting one that can be considered “famous!” Then I thought back to a trip I took to Universal Studios in Orlando Florida for Labor Day …

    Remix #1 (Visual) Prufrock’s Love Song


    So, when I read Prufrock, I think of a highly intelligent, over-dramatic (and melodramatic), egocentric kinda guy.  I feel like he is well-liked, but tired of always feeling examined or inspected.  His obsession with his outer appearance raises his anxiety levels to an absurd level, as far as calling himself …

    Remix #1 – Picturing Prufrock In a Fog


    Picturing Prufrock

    So many images, so little time!  Prufrock is a regular image-palooza, so deciding on one to depict was the tough part.  Once I locked on to the lines describing the yellow fog and the yellow smoke, I decided to blend these images with the person of Eliot himself, …

    Remix #1


    This is a photo of my youngest daughter, Erica, from Easter 2011. I’ve always loved the expression on her face and the bright colors in the picture. I tried to add effects that made the picture more dream-like. Erica is my free-spirited child who often loses herself in imaginary play …

    Wikipedia takes on Britannica and Encyclopedia Americana


    When discussing how to teach crap detection, of course Wikipedia always arises. There are those that absolutely, under no circumstances, allow their students to use Wikipedia. However, if students are made to research a topic on which they are not experts, isn’t a starting point going to have to be …

    My Statement Teaching Image


    My intentions with this piece were to sum my teaching style up so I thought a collage would be a good way to show more of what happens in my classroom. I love the larger image because it reflects my relationship with many of my students. I love to initiate …

    Exorcism, Wikipedia, & Britannica – Oh my!


    Our task was to examine an entry into three different mediums. The topic of examination was exorcism and we researched this term through a hardback encyclopedia, an online encyclopedia, and Wikipedia. We all have a perception that what we read in an encyclopedia is true. Similarly, a any believe that …

    Wikipedia Experiment


    Often times as a student when writing papers and trying to find credible sources I was told NEVER to go on Wikipedia. Today we put our skills to the test and were asked to use an “old school,” Encyclopedia, Wikipedia, and Britannica to search something that was Moderately obscure. …

    Wiki and Me, Part 1


    After consulting the 1999 Encyclopedia Americana (book), www.Britannica.com, and Wikipedia.org for information on the elusive chokecherry, I have made many interesting discoveries.  For starters, the Encyclopedia Americana offered a roughly 150-word entry that describes in dry academic language the chokecherry.  It is accompanied by a small black and white …

    My Teaching Life


    The Images
    What is my day like as a teacher?  That’s a complicated question for any teacher to answer.  We would all say that our job is to educate the minds of the future, but the reality of being a teacher goes so much farther!  The images I chose go …
