April 25, 2017 Remixes and Mashups By kklott ED 677 2 Comments 2 Comments Carolyn Stice Wow Kevin! This is really nicely done! When I first came to your page and saw no text, I thought, oh he isn’t done yet, but after watching your video, I see that you were just being really creative. I love the way you mashed all the digital platforms to tell a story about digital storytelling. It feels really meta. (Is that even the correct word?! Geez I feel old sometimes!) What program did you use to create this? With the phone view, it almost looks like you shot the entire thing with another device or screencasting software. I wish now that there was a written component, because I would really like to know how you made this. Thank you! May 5, 2017 Reply Heather Marie I really enjoyed your mashup of the course! It’s incredibly neat to see your process. In many ways, it gives the perspective that we, somewhat voyeuristically, are able to peek into your mind to see how you conceived and processed each assignment in tool. On that note, I think writing your thoughts and the narrative to drive the video in the tools we used in class was a stroke of genius. I also Love (capital L intended for emphasis ;)) how you used Twitter in the video. Adding the revision, excise of words, and attempts to make the tweet fit is relatable on a deep (and perhaps somewhat frustrating?) level — I feel like I spent forever doing just that with each tweet to take what I originally wanted to say, yet preserve the integrity to meet Twitter’s limits. I agree wholeheartedly that the hardest part of each assignment is picking a theme. Particularly when it comes to storytelling, you need to select something about which you are passionate or something that resonates on a personal level to ensure your work reflects your interest. In line with this, I loved that we were able to use Diigo to assist our sourcing of each project. As may have become obvious, I tend to oversource because I want all the information. Diigo, in some ways, provides a catharsis because you can leave a source, know it can be found later, and not feel guilty that you weren’t able to include something relevant and it would be forever lost to the argument. Thank you for the fun post! May 6, 2017 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
