DS106 Plays Caption This

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

It all started with this Retweet by Melanie McBride this morning:

It just so happens that I caught this in the stream and my interrest was piqued when I saw Google Street View mentioned because right now the ds106 internauts are using Google Street View to create a narrative about their childhood home, a particular trip, […]

The Shining Commentary

Friday, October 29th, 2010

So I just wrapped up my commentary on Kubrick’s The Shining. One of my top 3 films of all time, and it feels good because I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. And luckily I gave my digital storytelling class an assignment that provided the opportunity. I’ve pretty much been eating my own […]

ds106: Video Commentary Assignment

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

Note: I’m cross-posting this here as well as on the ds106 course blog for two reasons. 1) It pulls widely from Andy Rush’s unbelievable Digital Video resource blog/site, and I figured this would be a great thing to highlight for anyone working with video in or out of the classroom.

In DS106 one of the things that I have been pushing harder than anything else is commenting on each other’s work. I want it to be honest, plentiful, and sustained. In fact, I have the same expectations of commenting as I do of blogging, and, as Alan Levine notes, “Commenting is […]

Thursday night’s class started in one direction and ended up in a whole ‘nother one. It was pretty fun, well, at least for me. I was planning on talking about image stories, because we have been working on photography assignments all week, and were […]

The Birds in 6 Shots

School’s back in.

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

The ds106 newbies are starting up their blogs, which makes me feel guilty that I have not updated!
I haven’t had much to post about, for I have not been working on anything. There wasn’t room in the car for my needlework supplies, and I just received them from home this weekend. Now that I have […]

Favorite Band/Concert Survey Results

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

This Tuesday I posted a survey asking readers two questions. 1. Of all the concerts you’ve been to, which band played your favorite? and 2. Where was the concert? The survey is closed and the 29 responses have been plotted to a map on Google Earth. Check em out below: As you can see, the […]
