Week Six Reflection

July 15, 2017

Weekly Reflection

Man. I am trying to stay with it, but the slump is here. Two weeks left and my momentum to create, to think, to question is hitting a slow down. I am generally enjoying learning about new literacies and digital storytelling, but I am two weeks away from finishing my second master’s degree and I have some serious senioritis. Noooooo!

John Muir meets 2017 political/internet language – Dumpster Fire. One of my favorite phrases from this year.

My assignment for week six was a graphic video that I created using the pictogram bank from Canvas. I took screen shots of words/phrases, imported them into iMovie and put a quick quiz together. It took a little while to fine tune it, but I am pretty happy with it.

The critique came from 18 in the Bay  which is a digital zine of sorts that high school students from the San Francisco area created with the help of their teacher and Medium. It is pretty stunning and somewhat controversial. Read my analysis for more next door.

I enjoyed listening to my classmate DDM’s digital ethnography – https://twitter.com/DDM89771257 – about the intersection between authentic learning and teaching. The interview was interesting because the topics hit home this week and connected back to 18 in the Bay and finding voice in new literacies. When teachers and learners take each other seriously, when assignments are authentic and involve stretching oneself and working towards self realization, strong work is produced. Thanks DDM.

What do I have to say thinking back on the week? Honestly not enough. I think I will just leave you with my jam for the week: Arcade Fire’s new new. Album drops soon and this is a nice critique of digital/modern life.
