First off I would like to say I am so terrified of this assignment, I really don’t think I am as creative as our teacher thinks I am.
Now in saying that my digital story will be on the struggle of a parent going back to school. I hope to reach an audience of those who have ever had to make a tough decision in there life. I hope to inspire my audience to press through and reach your end goal. I think I am going to either do a semi slide show or a short video. I think I am leaning more towards a slide show. I am really lost on which song or songs I am going to use, but I hope to learn a lot from the media guy in class tomorrow. Times like these I wish I stuck to my computer graphic degree I was pursuing way back when.
I guess the video has to be three minutes and since we just got done doing a presentation that my specific group had two minutes each to present, a three minute video might a little easier than talking. I don’t plan to use my voice I just plan to use the pics as a flow of the storyline. Well we shall see has this goes. Good luck to everyone!
Well when I first started this class I thought I had it because I actually like to write, but when we started to got down to it I realize I suck at certain writing LOL. I have come to realize I am just NOT an analytical writer. It is to hard for me to remove myself from what I am writing and just write. One of the biggest things that has helped me is my mother. Without her being my sound board I really think that I wouldn’t be able to get through this.
I definatly can tell the difference in my writing from the first paper to the second, and i can’t wait to start on the third cause it will be my opinion. I’m good at that. I think that doing the contexual analysis was much easier to write about because it was more then 2-5 minutes of a video. I like the conferences that we have with Dr. Harris even though she doesn’t directly answer your questions LOL. I know she does that cause she wants us to think for ourselves which is good cause that is actually a life lesson.
All in all I think that everyone is learning and growng in our writing, atleast I hope we all are. One thing I wish was a little different would be that everyone is so quiet. I know there are some good ideas or thoughts in our class LET THEM BE HEARD!
Till next time.
