Daily Creates- Week #10

Only 2 daily creates this week!

The first daily create I completed was The not so disappointed Mistaken google image. I completed this daily create by just thinking about what could eaily be miss typed in google…after brain storming I googled hot dog (not actually a typo) and came up with a hysterical image of a Weiner dog in a hot dog costume!

The second daily create I did was seeing double! To complete this daily create I took a snapchat of my friend Alannah and I with one of the double face filters! This was a very version of seeing double, since we really are different, but you can not tell due to the filter!

Ready for next Week’s daily create tasks!!

16 Year Old Me Video

The first video assignment I completed this week was worth 4 1/2 stars and was called Sixteen Year Old Me. I chose this assignment because I think these kinds of assignments are really applicable to life. I love looking back and learning from my mistakes, and I feel like that is really what this assignment is about.

To complete this assignment I used the video editing program iMovie! I first wrote my script so I knew what path my video would take. Then once I had my script written I then inputted the images that helped to tell my story. Then I went back in and added some music, transitions, and text to help complete the story. Lastly, I recored a voice memo using the iPhone app and added the voice over onto my video. Then I shared my project to youtube! I hope you enjoy my video of advice to my 16 year old self!

Weekly Summary- Week #9

How is it already week 9?!?!

Anyway! To start this week we finally got to hear all of the radio shows we have all been working on over these past few weeks! I loved the live tweet along, and even Professor Bond and I trying to use google hangout to chat afterwards! Along with the live tweet along I also wrote a review of one of the awesome ds106 radio shows we had!

Review of Radio Show!

Also we had to complete 6 stars from the assignment bank this week! I chose two assignments, create your own room which was 4 1/2 stars and Google Draw something which was worth 1 1/2 stars! Both of these were super easy and also fun which was a nice break from the intense effort and slight stress from creating our radio show!

Create Your Own Room

Google Draw Something

Then I also completed the three daily creates that somehow connected into a story! This was so cool because when I was completing a daily create instead of doing something super random I had to think of a way to tie it into my previous one.

First one: Sticky Note Motivation for a Stranger

Second one: Drawing small

Third one: life look like 100 years from now!

They all connected because they are kind of my plan for the future! Stay motivated, graduate, and then live life in the future with all the advanced technology that I see coming!

Then I completed the Photo Through Different Lens Web assignment. I was so excited to complete this because I actually created this assignment! So since I created this assignment I decided to go with my original idea and example provided of shoes through different lens! I was super happy with how this turned out! I hope anyone else who completed this assignment found it as fun and challenging as I did.

Lastly, I completed the web storytelling assignment. Once again I was intimidated by the idea of this assignment, how am I suppose to alter a website already created? I was so confused, but this class always pushes me out of my comfort zone and I did it!

Web storytelling Using Amazon!

And as always a few comments from me!

Web Storytelling Via Amazon

Wow its hard to draw with a mouse pad

Web storytelling Using Amazon!

When I first read what I had to do for this assignment I was very intimadated! How am i suppose to edit a pre made website? This idea did not even make sense to me at first. Then I used the Mozilla X-Ray Goggles site and followed their basic tutorial and it was actually so simple!

Once I figured out how the heck I was suppose to do this I went right to Amazon! I chose Amazon because one I am an active prime member and love their site! I also thought if I was looking for the most abstract thing ever and could not find it where would I look, and the answer was Amazon! I was not sure what or how I was going to edit into a new product, but then it hit me! I created a product that actually helps stop my super sidekick little brain from using his mind reading powers. I thought it would be funny to almost have it be a one stop shop for super villains to finally be able to stop the good guy.

So I search bike helmet on Amazon and editing the text to describe it as a Mind Reading Protection Helmet! I editing throughout the entire text to really make this product seem real!! I even edited all the small text no one even reads!

Purchase your mind reading protection ASAP before all the villains clear them out!

Here is a closer image of the smaller text!

Photo Through Different Lenses

This was so cool!!! I am a little bias because I actually created this assignment! The basic idea of this assignment is to take a normal object (for example shoes), but make it creatively different in each picture!

To complete this assignment I took 10 pictures of shoes in the most creative and interesting ways I could think about! To create extra variety I even edited some of them a little extra! Then once I completed taking the pictures I edited a few of them with Picsart app and also collaged them using this app! I highly recommend it! Then I tweeted out my results for all to see!

Here are all my images individually so you can really see how I used the simple object differently in each! And also my end result and tweet!

Hands for Feet!!
3D Cartoon feet!
Eagles need sneakers too!


SHOE PHONE! Call me I am on the run!
Shoes unite!
Rain boots, Shoes, or room decorations?
Princess Leia shoe version.
Shoe protection!
Chairs need to get places too, right?

And my overall final product and tweet!

Super cool to see my idea come to life!



Review of Radio Show!

So today Tuesday October 24th I tuned into ds106 radio and listened to all the phenomenal radio shows this class produced!!! It was sooo cool to have our project finally shared live for everyone to hear, and I really appreciate all the comments and live tweet feedback it was incredible! Along with listening to my own radio show I listened to three others! For my review I decided to talk about 30 Minutes with Hannah Woehrle. I decided to do this one simply because it was the first show I got to fully listen to, so it was fresh in my mind with no other comparisons!

This show was awesome! It followed a similar plan as our show with the interview and game aspects! I think that is a great outline for a radio show because it helps people stay excited about the show. I loved how the interview was clear and to the point with a question and an answer, no fuss! It keeps the listeners interested and active in the show! My only critique would be to maybe shorten the gap between the question and the answer clips for a more realistic feel, but in reality there could a lag in radio call in conversations too, so really not a big issue at all!! There was also a phenomenal use of commercials during this radio show. It broke up content really well, and the commercials were quite entertaining as well!  I also really really loved the game that took place during this show! It was fun and challenged at the same time. I stunk at guessing, but I also could not stop guessing! I also never even thought to incorporate a hashtag for the games used in radio shows! That was such a creative idea to get listeners actively involved and talking! Great use/incorporation of social media into the radio show!

Great show guys!!!

Create Your Own Room

Next assignment bank project I did for this week was Create your own room! This assignment was worth 4 1/2 stars! I chose this assignment becauseI absolutely love room decor and planning for my future home one day!

To complete this assignment I went to my pinterest account and created a new board labeled “Dream Room”. Once I had the board created I started using the search function to look for the types of things I hope to have in my master bedroom one day!

For the reason behind the choices I made! As you can tell I love white/cream/light colors for my bedroom! I love these colors for my bedroom because it is so calming and cozy. I also love the shabby chic type of furniture style. Another thing I have always wanted in my bedroom was a window seat. It is just the perfect little nook to read, write, and have a cup of tea on. Lastly for the bedroom I love wall decor! Especially in big collages because it is like a photo album, but life size! I have those wall collages in my room now and I hope to continue to use those signs and picture frames to bring life into my bedroom!

I also included a few images of the bathroom and closet because boy do I have big expectations for those areas in my dream home! I would LOVE a free standing bath tub in my master bathroom one day. Also my dream closet is goals! I would love love love a walk in closet with a ton of built in shelfs. I love organization and I think those big built in shelfs would be amazing!

Hopefully one day I can have a big fancy home with a master bedroom that looks something like this!

Google Draw Something

For the first assignment bank project of this week I decided to star off with the google quick draw one! This was worth 1 1/2 stars! I picked this just because I have never messed around with google quick draw before and after the stress of completing the radio show I wanted to pick an assignment that was a little more relaxed! So basically I went to the google quick draw site and drew 6 images (very poor images) and google guessed what I was drawing! They managed to guess 5/6 of my images. I do not blame them for missing my air craft carrier…kind of resembles a bird, even though google guessed bread!. After I completed this I shared my results on twitter for the class to see!

Weekly Summary

This week was a quick one! Fall break really cut into our ds106 time!

To get started on this week I completed some of the daily creates! I really appreciate only having to complete two daily creates this week since we have to create our radio show this week!

Daily Creates- Week #8

Then after my group and I met to move forward with our radio show plans I completed the second radio show progress post! I decided to complete this post before we finished our radio show since it is a post about progress and the process we went through to get to the end result.

Radio Show Progress #2

Then I obviously completed my radio show with Ashleigh and Alaina! This was such an incredible, challenging, and over fun project! I am so proud of how our Distress Signal Radio Show turned out!! We had to work with some challenges since we were suppose to be a group of four, but ended up just being a group of three, but it worked out because we worked super well together. Only have three people and three superhero’s to incorporate was a challenge on our overall time for the radio show, but we produced such an awesome show regardless! We had so much fun recording our show. My favorite thing we did was that we all met up and recorded all of our script together and even just talked randomly for some of the parts. This really helped give our radio a genuine radio show kind of vibe. Really recording, laughing and playing these games out is what brought our radio show to the next level. Also Ashleigh’s killer editing skills made this a much easier and fun process for me since I struggle in that area.

Lastly commenting! This was a challenge this week just because there were significantly less posts to interact with throughout the week but her are some of mine!

Radio Show Progress #2

Distress Signal radio show is progressing wonderfully!

There was a slight delay in progress because of everyone being home for fall break, but as soon as we returned we got right back on track!

Today Ashleigh, Alaina, and I all met to really lay out and write a complete script for our radio show! It was so cool and fun to meet with them in person for the first time and have all of our ideas finally coming together into a real radio show! We basically spent an entire hour brainstorming and nailing out what our show will look like. We first went through our google doc and organized our ideas into one clear cut outline of what will be included into our show. Then we started to get into more specific details about when and what specifically we would be saying! I do not want to give you all too many details because we have a lot of surprises up our sleeves for our radio show!

As for recording we are meeting tomorrow evening to complete the final radio show! I am so excited to hear our final product because there are so many creative and fun ideas that we collaborated together to create!
