What is a Weekly Create?

Anything. I want you to make stuff … take a picture, make a gif, make a meme, record sound, shoot some, video, or write something. My goal is to get you to stretch your creativity and make digital things. They need to be posted to the course blog and you need to write something about what you made. Here are some questions to consider … How did you make it? What was the motivation for making it? What did you use to make it? Did you enjoy making it? Was it difficult? What does what you make say about you? Does it shape your identity? Are you happy with it?

At the end of the day, I just want you to spend some time thinking about creating digital artifacts. You will do one each week and we will build the rubric together, but for the most part anything goes!


Getting Started with Diigo

This semester I plan to make use of Diigo to manage links and resources that I see that I think you will find interesting. I encourage you to learn how to use it for both this class and for helping you organize stuff online. One of the main reasons I like Diigo is the ability to markup and annotate webpages and then allow others to see the annotations. This is really helpful as I share things with you — you get to see what I find important. To take advantage of that you will need to create your own account and be signed in. Here is a decent overview of Diigo … take a look and let me know so I can add you to the course Diigo group.
