Weeks Nine Goals

This is a bit of an “in between” week as we wrap up audio. In the evenings, we’ll be tuning in to d106 Radio to listen to each other’s radio shows. In addition, we’re going to make a concerted effort to get out there and read and comment upon each other’s work. Finally, you’ll be picking one assignment you’ve already completed this semester and revise it, improve upon it, mix it up, etc.

Daily Creates

Assignment: Daily Creates

Complete three TDCs over the course of the week. You can pick which ones.

Todays TDC

#tdc2355 Photograph a cactus or something thats fitting for a Western landscape, and make some symmetry art out of it.

Need inspiration? Have a look through some of Viv’s tree artwork for ideas. ( Just make sure there is at least one reflective plane.

Radio Show Tune In and Reflection

Assignment: Radio Show Reflection

Write a blog post in which you offer a final reflection on the production of your show, particularly what it was like to listen along to it with the rest of the class. Also, share your impressions of the other show you tuned into.
On Tuesday (2/21), Wednesday (2/22), Thursday (2/23), and Monday (2/26), I’ll be broadcasting the radio shows you all produced on the air on ds106 Radio. You should plan on tuning in for your show and at least one other. We’ll be having a group chat on Twitter (#ds106radio) during the shows, and at least one of the creators of each show should be available during your broadcast to answer questions. 


Revisit Your Work

This week, you should pick one 3, 4, or 5 star assignment you’ve already completed and significantly revise it, improve upon it, or remix it with something else. This is an opportunity to spend more time on something you might have rushed through before or to bring a new twist to an assignment you’ve already done and enjoyed.

Assignment: Revision Reflection

Share your revised work and tell us why you reworked it, what you reworked, and how you feel about the process.

Comment Extravaganza

Assignment: Comment like you've never commented before

This week, spend a significant amount of time reading and commenting upon the work of your fellow students! You might want to use the Comment Viewer to find posts that might need some comment love. Or you could concentrate on leaving comments on the posts of those in your survivor camp. Make your comments substantive: don’t just say “This is great!!” Tell the author what makes it great. What did you love? What didn’t work so well for you? What advice would you give about revising it making it better? How did it relate to something you made or someone else made?

As of this moment, there are 369 comments across all our sites; how high can we get that number by the end of the week?

Question of the Week

What’s one thing you definitely couldn’t live without during the apocalpyse? How would you go about obtaining it?
