My final project was turning Obama into a Superhero. I personally feel as though to some women and men, he is almost their real life superhero (take the mother who couldn’t afford her child’s health insurance). I hope that people do not take this extremely politically. To a certain extent, I’m sure someone could do a Romney or W. Bush superhero. Anyways, I hope that the reader views this as a “joke” story and not as a serious political stance (even though it sort of is). I really enjoyed combining all the my “skillz” into one project.
My week 3 blog seemed to be forever ago. My definition has changed slightly. I said that any old flickr picture or youtube video counted as digital storytelling. To an extent, this is true. However, I now feel that this flickr photo must have been taken for a reason for that youtube video must have been shot for a purpose to count as digital storytelling.
My link to my tutorial/assignment/daily create posts contains my tutorials (one on Corgis, another on iMovie), my assignment ideas (“Post Secret”, and TV Intro Backwards) and then my ideas for daily creates (take a picture of what you do when you first wake up and favorite place to do homework).
My best work category contains the assignments I had the most fun doing. They may not have actually been my “best work”, but these were the assignments that I did and thought “wow, that was actually a fun break from real work”. I also included ones that I got a lot of comments on.
My advice post is all in gifs and a few words. GIFs, I think, express more than a picture and less that a video, so it is “just right”.
I loved DS106. At first I was pretty stressful because I’d never used Twitter before and my computer was essentially a “Facebook Machine”. But I feel like I not only know the world of blogging better, but I know the way around my computer. I don’t think I have any complaints about DS106 at all.
