I messed around with Tagxedo and made a wordcloud out of my Where I’m From poem. It didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to; for some reason I couldn’t fix the size of the word ‘cheese,’ and that really bugged me. The result was this:
A new media for me was The Wilderness Downtown. It really creates a story for you based on an address that you give it. Unfortunetly I cannot link to the story I created, but I used OCU’s address, 2501 N. Blackwelder Ave., OKC, OK 73106. So just click the hyperlink above and input the address to see it.
I also created a Wiki page on Geocaching. This was a new experience, because I’ve never created a page that people could possibly view and use as a reference for something. It was a little stressful, because I didn’t want to get any information wrong. I also felt like I could add so much more information.
I also created a snapshot digital story that talked about a concert I went to and just growing up. I can’t link to this either because iMovie says that some audio files are missing, and it’s still a rough draft anyway. This was a really fun project to work on though, and I definitely wouldn’t mind making another one or even using it as a teaching tool in the future.
Another digital project that was new for me was this blog. Like I said in my first blog posting, this type of blogging is completely new to me. I’ve never really been familiar with blogging outside of diary-type blogs. This was a great experience for me because it made me go out of my comfort zone and write about things that I normally wouldn’t bother with. I’m really glad I got to do something like this.
