The above four links are my daily creates for the week. (The photos are hyperlinked) This was by far the most creative I have been throughout my years here. These assignments made me think outside the box and creatively.
The next few assignments are my weekly posts.
- Lodown Zone Response
- Cyberinfrastructure Feedback
- Wesch: Interactive Learning
- Splash of Color
- Hawaii Chair Gif
Overall I feel like I completed the assignments for the week very well. I just want to toot my own horn for not giving up! This week was a real struggle for me. Alot of the new accounts I signed up for I had never used. I feel like I did A work this week. I spaced out the due dates for each assignment and made it a goal to learn something new everyday.
The thing that gave me the most trouble was the Splash of Color assignment. I realize that the video I found gave a kind of long method to get to the point of completion. But using GIMP for the first time was very overwhelming. Also learning how to tweet was a struggle. I had a twitter account for a while now but I barely used it. And when I did, I never replied to a tweet, so that was a very new experience for me.
The thing I enjoyed most was making the gif. Yes I know I just said that using GIMP gave me frustration. But I got the hang of it later on in the week. Choosing the photos I wanted to use and finally truly understanding what layers were, made this assignment very enjoyable.
The major question for the week that I would like to open to everyone is how are you guys keeping track of the correct tags for each assignment. All week I was going back and forth making sure everything was tagged correctly. Other than first using GIMP, this was my major downfall. I was just very confused about the whole tagging thing.
One of the societal issues surrounding this weeks work is exactly what Gardner Campbell discussed in his video. This week I realized how little I knew about emerging technology. I learned that other than updating posts here and there on facebook, I had no cyber infrastructure. Understanding the lack of personal cyber infrastructure, I made it a goal to continuously learn something new and not to give up while working on an assignment.
